World Islamic Economic Forum (WIEF) Foundation chairman Tun Musa Hitam says the Malaysian government should not rush into the proposed Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreement without wider consultation.
He said this will calm down the anxiety surrounding the secretive trade pact and reassure the critics of TPP.
Musa said at present it looks like the TPP deal is being done in haste without engaging Malaysians in this important issue.
“I agree that in an exercise of that nature, there is need for in-depth and widespread process of discussions on where this thing will take us and what it is all about,” he said.
He said Malaysians need to know what will be the real impact of the TPP on the country that has not been pursued by the government.
“Now that there are doubts about the TPP, I think the government need to put things right. It is not enough for the authorities to parrot the official statements that this is in the interest of Malaysia,” he said to the media at the WIEF office yesterday.
“There needs to be widening of the parties involved and those that has relevance with the TPP. If you try to identify, you will see that everybody is affected by the TPP,” he said.
There are a lot of allegations and if these are all true, it will be very bad for our country but I do not really know how bad it will be, he said, adding that he is not commenting as WIEF chairman on this issue.
