subsidies have Long-run equilibrium effects.
(Subsidies result in overproduction
deadweight loss.) A subsidy will reduce the
cost of production to the producer. It makes
it cheaper to produce.
It is likely that the producer will be
encouraged to produce more therefore the
supply curve will shift to the right . It is also
likely to decrease the cost of the product.
SUBSIDY EFFECT TO THE ECONOMY
Fuel subsidy is the largest component of government subsidies. it is
intended protect consumers, but it has increased dramatically and
impact of government spending.

WHEN WE SHARED
WHY CAN NOT GOVERNMENT PROVIDE PROVISION FOR
LARGER FUEL SUBSIDY?
FUEL SUBSIDY aimed to protecting consumers,
but it has increased dramatically and affect
government spending. If the government
continues to allocate large amounts of fuel
subsidies, the government had to sacrifice
other more important expenses include
expenses to provide infrastructure and basic
About 30% to 40% of the country’s allocation for medical treatment are taking
by the foreigners. In most European countries, foreigners were required to pay
the actual cost. There is a plan to get foreigners, including students to pay for
their actual cost of medical treatment in government hospital.
This phenomenon is not good for our country subsidies policy because the
foreigners are not the target group for the subsidy allocation. Plan to get
foreigners to pay the actual cost of medical treatment in government hospital
is a very good plan indeed.
1. Parliament or government need to draft a new act or policy regarding
2. Government should find new mechanisms to make sure that subsidies are
distributed to the target group (Malaysian).
3. If government want to continue to give subsidies to foreigners, the
government should increases levy or taxes to the foreign workers.
Based on my justification, government want to reduce the subsidy and
introduce new system of tax or that call good and services tax (GST)
because to reduce government expenditures and increase injection
money in government revenue, deficit budget had been applied to
develop project such as schools, hospital, and so on.
On other view government subsidy have being rise fast over year that
will effect government operation. Subsidy that had being
implementing in Malaysia not benefit to the person selected or person
how really need .based on my opinions government should take an
effective action in order to control subsidy bill by creating a solution
by using new method to distribute subsidy by giving coupon to the
person or household who really need the subsidies. This method will
help government to control the expenditures in subsidies giving.
Government will continue to allocated subsidy

The price of ron95 petrol would remain steady
at rm1.90 per liter even if global fuel prices
were to increase.
The actual market price for ron95 is RM3.18. The
government not only gives subsidy for ron95, it
also forgoes the sales tax.

WHY GOVERNMENT WANT TO IMPLEMENT THE
RATIONALISATION OF SUBSIDY
