Sabah Budget 2013

The 2013 Budget for Sabah will be tabled today by Chief Minister, Datuk Musa Aman.


Last year the CM who is also the Finance Minister announced the biggest ever budget for Sabah of RM4.048 billion in a lengthy afternoon cabinet sitting.

Sabah's last 5 years budget seen on the increasing trend.

2013 Budget Outlook

Yesterday, Institute for Development Studies (IDS) Sabah chairman Datuk Clarence B. Malakun said he expected the State to table the best ever Barisan National State Government budget. He is confident that it would be even better than this year's, which at RM4.048 billion was the biggest in Sabah's history.

Meanwhile, Pakatan Rakyat (PR) Sabah unveiled their version of an ambitious State Budget 2013 of RM7.284 billion in expenditure for development covering social, economy and welfare aspects in Sabah if it take over the government. The opposition took into account the promised 20% increase in oil royalty once it comes into power.

Some of the highlights of the opposition's alternative state budget are:
Thrust 1: Making our Land Work
Thrust 2: Raising Disposable Income Sustainably
Thrust 3: Social Outreach for All
Thrust 4: Enabling and Empowering Women and Local Communities
Thrust 5: Improving our Connectivity

This, for now, is just for reading pleasure as the real deal will be coming out this afternoon.

Let's hope for the best for the Rakyat.
