Contingency plan needed in view of declining crude oil prices, DAP tells Najib


Dateline 2014-11-17, The Malaysian Insider:

DAP lawmaker Liew Chin Tong today called on Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak to present a revised Budget 2015 or a contingency plan to take into consideration the declining prices of crude oil, which would severely dent the government’s revenue.

He said that Najib should at least present to parliament his plans if faced with three scenarios: of crude oil prices dropping to US$80 (RM267.40), US$70 (RM233.90) or US$60 (RM200.50) per barrel.

“The government had estimated its 2014 revenue with the crude oil price at US$110 (RM367.60) per barrel and US$105 (RM351) per barrel for 2015,” he said in a statement today.
