KUALA LUMPUR, The New Malaysia born from aspirations and hearts of the people a month ago has not only managed to create a more harmonious atmosphere but also witnessed multiracial people begin to consolidate unity by rejecting racial or religious sentiments.
Economic Affairs Minister Datuk Seri Azmin Ali said the celebration this time was also seen as more meaningful.
"Our beloved Malaysia is now on a recovery phase after more than 60 years being governed by the former government. As an individual responsible for driving the country's economic affairs, I am convinced that the people will continue to be taken care of," he said in his Hari Raya Aidilfitri message here today.
He said various efforts would continue to be mobilised, including creating an investor-friendly economic environment, generating employment opportunities and increasing foreign investment without sacrificing the principle of transparency and accountability.
"These efforts, however, will not work without hinging on the concept of social justice. It should be punctuated with the noble qualities of trust, 'siddiq', 'tabligh' and 'fatanah'. I believe only praiseworthy attributes and independent spirits can re-establish the dignity of a nation," he said.
