Postponement of Petrol Subsidy Programme generates mixed reaction from economists

Dateline 2020-01-04, Malay Mail:

The decision by the government to postpone the implementation of the Petrol Subsidy Programme (PSP) this month has elicited mixed reaction from economists.

The postponement was to enable briefing sessions to be continued to create awareness and prepare the public for the implementation of the programme, according to the Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Ministry.

The ministry in a statement dated December 30, 2019, said its decision would provide time for the registration of subsidy beneficiaries, which will be undertaken by the Finance Ministry.
