Recently, the Minister of Finance II assured the nation that we remain not only competitive but are also the recipient of quality foreign direct investments (FDI), and have the ability to sustain our growth above the 5 percent level.

Nevertheless, after attending a recent DAP fund-raising dinner as a guest, I heard an almost divergent and different story about the state of the economy.

Which is the true storyline? How can we be competitive and uncompetitive at the same time?
