BajetThe Malaysian government has put up a special website where citizens can share their ideas on how public funds should be used next year under the slogan “We want your ideas for #Bajet2014”.

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak is encouraging Malaysians to give suggestions in drafting the 2014 budget which should be finanlised by the government on October.

“WE are providing a platform for the rakyat to come together and share their views on the 2014 Budget. The discussions will focus on several topics including cost of living, housing and urban living, healthcare, public safety and other issues close to the hearts of the people. We will continue collecting your input until the 8th of September, after which they will be sent to the Finance Ministry for consideration,” Najib said.

Aside from making comments, netizens can also vote in favour or against the ideas given by others.

Among the ideas so far on how to use the budget was one to “build a casino with Chinese architecture to attract millions of Chinese tourists to Sabah.”

Others wanted student allowances financed by the budget, affordable kindergartens, tax incentives, abolishment of the 10 per cent service charge in restaurants, or to reduce the accident rate during the festive season, just to quote a few.
