KUALA LUMPUR, May 18 — The chairman of an advisory council set up by the new Malaysian government said today that all mega projects in the country would be reviewed and recommendations would be presented to the government.

“We have to review all mega projects. If it is not to our advantage, then we have to sit down and talk...,” Tun Daim Zainuddin told reporters.

The advisory group was set up by the newly elected Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

Daim also said the government expects to raise about RM30 billion from a reinstated sales and services tax (SST). The new government introduced SST after scrapping a goods and service tax (GST). — Reuters
