Editor's Note: An earlier version of this article errorneously attributed remarks on GST being a good but tarnished tax system to Finance Ministry undersecretary for fiscal policy Mohd Hassan Ahmad. The remarks were made by Kenanga Investment Bank's head of economic research Wan Suhaimi Wan Mohd Saidie. We regret the error.

The now-abolished Goods and Services Tax (GST) had been a good tax system “tarnished” by poor implementation by the previous administration, according to the economist Wan Suhaimie Wan Mohd Saidie.

The Kenanga Investment Bank Bhd head of economic research said he hopes that the government would reintroduce GST once the country’s economy is in better shape.
