Sarawak party urges state govt to impose 20pc sales tax on petroleum


Dateline 2018-12-30, Malay Mail:

State Reform Party (STAR) president Lina Soo today urged the Sarawak government to impose a 20 per cent sales tax on petroleum and petroleum products to fund schools and infrastructures.

She said the state government should also start a sovereign fund for the future generations from a certain percentage of the revenue collected from the sales tax.

“It is time that Sarawak starts looking after ourselves to catch up with the other states, instead of being their cash cow for as long as we remain in the Federation of Malaysia,” Soo said.
