National newswire Bernama reported Finance Minister Lim Guan Eng as saying earlier today that foreign investors remained confident in Malaysia’s economic outlook.
He also reportedly said trade and investment diversions from the trade war between the United States and China, however, will only benefit Malaysia in the short term.
Anwar said earlier today that he remained confident he would succeed Dr Mahathir as prime minister, even though the Bersatu leader changed his initial two-year plan and has decided to now stay in office for three years.
