The PH government should proceed with public transportation projects such as HSR and MRT3 projects instead of wanting to start another national car company and re-implementing protectionist measures that will only burden the people with higher car prices and financing costs.
During my time as Prime Minister, I had made it a priority to gradually reduce car prices by a gradual reduction in taxes and by introducing incentives while expanding public transportation projects.
As a result, car prices now cost less than when I first became PM while usage of public transportation has surged.
In the long-run, such measures to correct a legacy problem of the past will benefit the people to the tune of hundreds of billions of Ringgit while providing a more efficient, more cost effective, less congested and less polluting transportation options.
Do not cancel such public transportation projects just because I started them and reverting to projects merely based on pride that will cause greater harm to the Rakyat.
