Happy GST Day Malaysians!!

Filed under: 1Malaysia,Barisan Nasional — Pengayau @ 1:45 am

Good morning. Semua status update di FB ngan Tweets di Twitter aritok ngerepak pasal GST. Relaks, bak kata orang, its a blessing in disguise

Maybe after this you guys would be more critical or concern on how the Najib spend our taxpayers money

Maybe after this you guys would finally interested to read “Laporan Ketua Audit Negara” every year

Maybe after this you guys would finally interested on how Rosmah Mansor do his shopping all arround the world with private jet bought/rent/paid by taxpayers money

Its a blessing in disguise and hopefully more and more Malaysians would finally open up their eyes on how the Government spend every single cents of taxpayers money.

We dont need GST if the Government can save a lots of wastages due to corruption and to cut unnessary spendings

The only reason for new Taxation being introduce is to generate MORE incomes for the government but its useless if they keep on spending the money the way it is now.

GST is their only and last resort since subsidies for fuel has been implented.

So sapa madah GST tek sikkan nait kan harga barang? Sapa madah GST tek bait untuk Rakyat?

Tok sik kira kau Pro Kerajaan (BN) ka, Pro Pembangkang (PR) ka, semua tetap kenak.

Salam April’s Fool, Salam 1 GST untuk semua. Semua kenak game ngan Najib aritok. Padan muka kita semua. Haha!

“Undi lah Pembangkang jika anda setuju untuk jadikan Kristian sebagai Agama rasmi Persekutuan Malaysia”

The same tactics they use in Sarawak in the last state election whereby posters of YB Baru Bian (Sarawak PKR Chairman) implicating that Sarawak would become a Christian state if PKR won in Sarawak and that has scared away some Muslims voters

The fact is, Sarawak is a Secular State with no Official Religion vis a vis Point No.1 of our 20/18 Point of Agreement prior to formation of Malaysia in 1963 which read:

Point 1: Religion
While there was no objection to Islam being the national religion of Malaysia there should be no State religion in North Borneo, and the provisions relating to Islam in the present Constitution of Malaya should not apply to North Borneo

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/20-point_agreement

Of course, BN wont admit it. That is typical “Baling batu, Sembunyi tangan”

UMNO style/modus operandi is similar to NAZI propaganda in the 2nd World War, Racist to the core!

Khairy Jamaluddin said they have taken down that pic, and now investigating who’s that foolish site admin that uploading that image. The pic went viral in just few minutes. He does not know that, that FB page exist, could have been setup by anyone or fanboy. Well, damage is already done.

 

Excerpt from the Wikipedia :

Article 3 of the Constitution of Malaysia establishes Islam as the “Religion of the Federation”However, Malaysia’s law and jurisprudence is based on the English common law. Sharia law is applicable only to Muslims, and is restricted to family law and religious observances. Therefore, there has been much debate on whether Malaysia is a secular state or an Islamic state.

Originally, the draft Constitution of Malaysia did not specify any official religion for the state. This move was supported by the rulers of the nine Malay states, who felt that it was sufficient that Islam was the official religion of each of their individual states. However, Justice Hakim Abdul Hamid of the Reid Commission which drafted the Constitution came out strongly in favour of making Islam the official religion, and as a result the final Constitution named Islam as the official religion of Malaysia.

Nine of the Malaysian states, namely Kelantan, Terengganu, Pahang, Kedah, Perak, Perlis, Selangor, Johor and Negeri Sembilan have constitutional Malay monarchs (most of them styled as Sultans). These Malay rulers still maintain authority over religious affairs in states. The states of Penang, Malacca, Sarawak and Sabah do not have any sultan, but the king (Yang di-Pertuan Agong) plays the role of head of Islam in each of those states as well as in each of the Federal Territories of Kuala Lumpur, Labuan and Putrajaya.

On the occasion of Tunku Abdul Rahman (Malaysia’s first prime minister)’s 80th birthday, he stated in the 9 February 1983 edition of the newspaper The Star that the “country has a multi-racial population with various beliefs. Malaysia must continue as a secular State with Islam as the official religion.” In the same issue of The Star, Abdul Rahman was supported by the third Malaysian Prime Minister, Hussein Onn, who stated that the “Nation can still be functional as a secular state with Islam as the “Official Religion”

Although the constitution declares Malaysia to be a secular state, there is much confusion on this subject. Several Muslims have argued, especially after former Prime Minister Mahathir bin Mohamad’s declaration that Malaysia is an Islamic state, that Malaysia is in fact an Islamic state.

One Member of Parliament (MP), Badruddin bin Amiruldin, has stated in the Dewan Rakyat house of Parliament that “Malaysia ini negara Islam” (“Malaysia is an Islamic state”) and that “you tidak suka, you keluar dari Malaysia!” (“You don’t like it, you get out of Malaysia!”) Badruddin refused to retract his statement, and a motion to refer him to the House Committee of Privileges was rejected by a voice vote.

However, the first Prime Minister, Tunku Abdul Rahman, contradicted this stance in the 1980s, saying, “All talk on Islamic States is just an empty dream. No man in his right sense would accept a nation which bases its political administration on religion, and in a country like Malaysia with its multiracial and multireligious people, there is no room for an Islamic State.” In 1988, the courts rejected the argument that Malaysia was a theocratic state http://www.loyarburok.com/2010/01/09/criminalizing-liberty-second-segment/

Despite the Federal Government’s denial that Malaysia is an Islamic state, the previous administration under Abdullah Badawi have gradually furthered the agenda of Islamic supremacy at the expense of other religions. The spread of Christianity is a particular sore point for the Muslim majority. The Malaysian government has also persecuted Christian groups who were perceived to be attempting to proselytize to Muslim audiences. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Islam_in_Malaysia

The basic legal presumption is one was innocent until proven guilty
You should be considered innocent until it can be proved that you are guilty. If you are accused of a crime, you should always have the right to defend yourself.

Nobody has the right to condemn you and punish you for something you have not done.

It is the principle that one is considered innocent until proven guilty. Application of this principle is a legal right of the accused in a criminal trial, recognised in many nations.

The burden of proof is thus on the prosecution, which has to collect and present enough compelling evidence to convince the trier of fact, who is restrained and ordered by law to consider only actual evidence and testimony that is legally admissible, and in most cases lawfully obtained, that the accused is guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. If reasonable doubt remains, the accused is to be acquitted

But in Malaysia, you’re guilty untill proven innocent! Only In Malaysia.

Graf kenaikan harga minyak di Malaysia sebelum PRU12 dan selepas PRU12. Adakah situasi ni akan berulang lagi selepas PRU13 nanti?

Harga Minyak Harga Minyak RON95 Tidak Naik Buat Masa Ini, Walaupun Harga Minyak Dunia Naik??

Alhamdulillah, kerajaan Malaysia di bawah Perdana Menteri telah pun berjanji yang mana harga minyak petrol RON95 masih lagi kekal buat masa ini walaupun berlakunya harga minyak dunia ketika ini. Dan terbaru, ia diulangi sekali lagi oleh Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.trans Harga Minyak RON95 Tidak Naik Buat Masa Ini, Walaupun Harga Minyak Dunia Naik??

Subsidi RON95 Naik 10 Sen, Harga Minyak Petrol Kekal RM1.90

PUTRAJAYA: Kenaikan harga minyak global menyebabkan subsidi untuk petrol RON95 sebanyak 10 sen kepada RM1.03 seliter pada Mac, kata Menteri Perdagangan Dalam Negeri, Koperasi dan Kepenggunaan, Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob pada Selasa.

Harga petrol bagi RON95 kekal pada RM1.90 per liter.

“Sejak harga petroleum dunia meningkat, kerajaan terpaksa meningkatkan subsidi bagi memastikan rakyat tidak dibebani dengan kesan sampingan,” katanya di sini, Selasa.

Kali terakhir harga minyak RON95 dikaji semula pada Disember lalu apabila harga minyak naik daripada RM1.85 seliter kepada RM1.90.

Perdana Menteri, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak pada akhir Februari lalu berjanji bahawa harga minyak petrol RON95, yang digunakan secara meluas oleh pemilik kenderaan, akan dikekalkan buat masa ini walaupun kenaikan harga minyak global. Sumber : Mstar)

Moga-moga kenyataan seperti di atas benar-benar dipegang oleh pihak kerajaan. Bukan apa, sebenarnya kenyataan seperti ini pernah kedengaran di telinga kami sekitar 4 tahun lalu. Bunyinya seperti begini….

Februari 2008 : Harga Minyak Tidak Naik (Datuk Najib)

Minyak Petrol Harga Minyak RON95 Tidak Naik Buat Masa Ini, Walaupun Harga Minyak Dunia Naik??

(Sumber : Utusan Malaysia)

Kami yakin pada masa itu ramai yang meletakkan harapan yang tinggi dengan kenyataan kalangan menteri. Masakan tidak, jika benar-benar berlaku kenaikan harga minyak, ia bakal memberikan impak secara rantaian kepada kenaikan semua harga barang di Malaysia.

3 Bulan Kemudian : Semboyan Kenaikan Harga Minyak di Malaysia Telah Berbunyi

Tetapi belum puas kalangan rakyat Malaysia meraikan kejayaan dan kemenangan parti masing-masing semasa Pilihanraya Umum 2008, yang dipilih oleh kalangan mereka tidak kira lah daripada Barisan Nasional mahupun Pakatan Rakyat, akhirnya sudah mula kedengaran harga minyak bakal dinaikkan tidak lama lagi.

“Kalau begitu janji kerajaan melalui Datuk Najib hanya mampu bertahan untuk 3-4 bulan sahaja?”

Bermakna kalau disemak semula kenyataan bekas Menteri Perdagangan Dalam Negeri dan Hal Ehwal Pengguna pada masa itu, Datuk Shahrir Abdul Samad, rakyat Malaysia ada 2 bulan lagi untuk bersedia menghadapigelombang kenaikan harga minyak yang dijangka berlaku pada bulan Ogos.

Harga Minyak Malaysia Harga Minyak RON95 Tidak Naik Buat Masa Ini, Walaupun Harga Minyak Dunia Naik??

(sumber : Mstar)

Tiba-tiba, selepas 2 hari sahaja kenyataan dikeluarkan oleh menteri berkenaan harga minyak di Malaysia, rakyat Malaysia dikejutkan dengankenaikan yang mendadak di mana harga minyak terus dinaikkan, bukannya pada paras 10 sen20, sen , 40 sen70 sen tetapi kenaikan tertinggi iaitu sebanyak 78 sen. Sedangkan, kita iaitu Malaysia merupakan pengeluar minyak. Setiap satu dolar kenaikan harga minyak dunia, Malaysia berjaya mengaut keuntungan beratus juta dolar Amerika.

Jun 2008: Akhirnya, Harga Minyak Naik 78 sen

Kenaikan Minyak Naik Harga Minyak RON95 Tidak Naik Buat Masa Ini, Walaupun Harga Minyak Dunia Naik??

Sumber : Utusan Malaysia

Harga Minyak Naik Harga Minyak RON95 Tidak Naik Buat Masa Ini, Walaupun Harga Minyak Dunia Naik??

(Sumber Infografik : Malaysiakini)

Mungkin Datuk Seri Najib dan Datuk Ismail boleh memperjelaskan kepada rakyat Malaysia selepas ini. Contohnya, apabila berlaku setiap kenaikan harga minyak dunia, berapa perolehan pendapatan kepada Malaysia selaku pengeksport minyak yang berkualiti tinggi? Dan sehingga di paras mana Malaysia masih boleh bertahan lagi pada harga minyak yang digunakan rakyat Malaysia ketika ini. 2 bulan, 3 bulan, 4 bulan atau…..?

Dan jika harga minyak boleh dinaikkan, adakah kerajaan juga benar-benar bersedia untuk menurunkan harga minyak semula jika harga minyak dunia kembali kepada sediakala?

P/S : Apa respon anda pula mengenai isu harga minyak ini?

 

Ingat BN, Ingat Barang Naik

Ingat BN, Ingat Bini Najib

Ingat BN, Ingat Banyak Naik

Ingat BN, Ingat Barua Negara

Ingat BN, Ingat Babi Negara

Ingat BN, Ingat Baziran Nasional

Mong: Hentikan bantuan OKU pembangkang adalah betul

Menteri Muda Pertanian Sarawak Datuk Mong Dagang mempertahankan tindakannya mengarahkan Jabatan Kebajikan Masyarakat bagi menghentikan bantuan kebajikan kepada pekebun kurang upaya, Frusis Lebi.

Mong juga berkata tindakannya meminta Jabatan Pertanian Sri Aman untuk tidak lagi memberi baja percuma dan benih pokok kepada pekebun yang cacat itu sebagai betul.

Beliau ketika dihubungi akhbar harian Inggeris The Sun semalam berkata sebagai seorang pemimpin yang prinsip, tidak akan menarik balik apa yang diarahkannya itu.

“Kita tidak boleh terus memberi bantuan kebajikan dan subsidi kerana beliau adalah seorang penyokong pembangkang yang tegar.

“Bantuan kebajikan harus diberikan kepada orang cacat yang lebih layak,” katanya dipetik akhbar itu. Read more here http://www.malaysiakini.com/news/191188


Masing : Jangan lawan towkay

Kuching : PRS President Tan Sri Dr James Jemut Masing has come to the aid of his besieged Vice President Datuk Mong Dagang, who is alleged to have cancelled a welfare assistance and government subsidies to a pro opposition but physically challenged (OKU) farmer, by saying “ Following a rule of life- Jangan Lawan Towkay” In any organization, including Political Parties, we cannot go against our boss. That’s a golden rule in life which we must observed,” Masing told The Borneo Post here yesterday

 

 

Sokong pembangkang: Bantuan OKU dihentikan

Sepucuk surat yang didakwa ditandatangani oleh Menteri Muda Pertanian Sarawak Datuk Mong Dagang yang mengarahkan bantuan kerajaan kepada seorang lelaki kurang upaya dihentikan atas tuduhan menyokong pembangkang telah menimbulkan kemarahan warga maya.

‘Surat’ berkenaan dimuat naik di Facebook. Ia dikatakan dari “Menteri Muda Pertanian (Penyelidikan dan Pemasaran), Sarawak” dengan tajuk: “Memberhentikan segala bantuan kerajaan – Encik Frusis Lebi dari Entualang Entawa, Sri Aman”.

Surat yang dikatakan ditandatangani oleh Dagang (kiri) itu mengarahkan Penolong Pengarah Jabatan Pertanian Sri Aman supaya semua bentuk bantuan kerajaan untuk Frusis, yang dikenal pasti sebagai orang kurang upaya dalam surat itu, diberhentikan serta-merta.

“Ini adalah kerana beliau menentang dasar kerajaan dan menyokong secara terbuka calon pembangkang pada pilihan raya negeri 2011,” petik surat itu.

“Selain itu, beliau juga menyediakan bilik operasi untuk calon pembangkang.”

Surat daripada YB Mong Dagang, ADUN Bukit Begunan kepada Penolong Pengarah Pertanian, Jabatan Pertanian Bahagian Sri Aman meminta Jabatan berkenaan memberhentikan semua bantuan Kerajaan kepada Encik Frusis Lebi dari Entulang Sawa, Sri Aman yang juga seorang OKU kerana menyokong Calon Pembangkang secara terbuka pada PRN yang lepas

Official Letter from Sri Aman Agriculture Officer to Sri Aman SAAO regarding YB Mong Dagang letter which has requested the Agriculture Department all forms of assistance to Mr Frusis with a reason that he has supporting the Opposition in the last State Election

A Police Report has been lodged at Sri Aman with Mr Frusis. He had requested the Police to investigate Abuse of Power by YB Mong Dagang in for which in his letter has instructed the Agriculture Department to stop all forms of assistance to Mr Frusis with a reason that he has supporting the Opposition in the last State Election. Democracy?

It is Government of the People, By the People, for the People! It is the Government of all Sarawakians regardless of our Political afiliation!

He’s trying to say that only BN SUPPORTERS would get helps and assistance from the Government?

Such statement were very uncalled for and even worse, it came from an Elected Representatives who himself supposed to know better the essence of Democracy!

Sekilas darah Rentap masuk merasuk aku bingkas bangun. Mansang kedepan.Nervous..? memang ada? Tapi pengalaman debat dan berpidato wakil sarawak ini bersama dengan aku.

“Apa lu tidak puas hati? pasal PTPTN ka?” dengan nada yg kurang pengajaran dan pembelajaran dia bertanya.

“Lu tahu ka itu kerajaan bagi?” Tanya dia lagi.

“Salah jaku d YB, kerajaan mana ada BAGI PTPTN, dia kasih PINJAM sama saya. Saya bayar balik lor.” Jawab aku lagi.

(*ting ting*) SATU KOSONG.

Kemudian dia punya assistant pun tarik saya ke dalam bilik. Tuai2 rumah dan penghulu yg ada hanya mampu memberi reaksi blur dan mulut mereka terngaga. Muka yg marah….ish2..semua nampak fed up sebab aku ni tengah mempamerkan sikap yg kurang ajar.

Kita balik kepada episod seterusnya.

Aku dan assistant dia. “Awak student mana? Brapa umur? Nak belajar ke nak berpolitik? Nanti kita tarik PT awak. Minta IC.”

Amboi2…sedapnya mulut.

”Awak ni siapa nak tarik pt saya? Umur saya 24. Sekarang saya berhak mengundi. Politik tak pun ganggu saya punya result? I am Malaysian citizen. My first responsibility is to get involved in politic and cast my vote. Keduanya lepas selesai, saya jadi student balik.”

Mereka menakutkan saya dgn isu pt. Saya tak takut pun. Lepas tu saya dibawa ke ruai balik.

“tak payah la you bagi dia speech,lepas ni nanti seetle baik dalam bilik?” kata pembantu no 2.

“tak apa,saya bagi lu chance utk speech” ujar si dia dengan angkuh.

Ok no problem. saya sahut cabaran itu. 5 minit utk saya.

Tuai2 rumah dan penghulu masih bermuka blur dan marah. Sangat nervous owh…Barisan ayat pertama terketar-ketar. pas tu macam biasa…..

Mana ulasan / jawapan yg telah dijanjikan? Aku tak dengar jawapan pun….alahai YB BN. Aku yg ciput masih berhingus ini pun muka YB sudah merah, patutlah tak berani nak debat dgn pemimpin Pakatan Rakyat.

Aku berlalu pergi meninggalkan mereka.

Keesokan harinya, undi di saluran aku meningkat mendadak. Past election pembangkang hanya dapat 9 SAHAJA. Kali ini naik kepada 131(estimation) BN 240 (estimation) lupa sikit jumlahnya.

Yang pasti undi pembangkang sudah naik.

Faktor yg besar adalah undi orang Muda.

No wonder BN ini amat takut kepada golongan Mahasiswa. Kita bukan bodoh utk diperbodohkan.

Chart : How has the government managed the budget surplus in the last 16 years?

Filed under: Barisan Nasional — Pengayau @ 1:44 pm
Tags: ,

Taken from PoliTweet.Org

This graph shows the budget surplus trend as a percentage of GDP from 1996 – 2012. Since 1998 there has been a budget deficit.

A budget deficit occurs when the government spends more than it receives in revenue. Deficits are financed by borrowing, which increases public sector debt. This is not necessarily a bad thing, as government spending can help stimulate economic growth and benefit society through welfare, healthcare and measures dealing with job loss and owning property. This can become necessary during a recession.

What is important for voters is ensuring that the government works to reduce the deficit, so it does not remain high or increase over a sustained period. This can be seen from 2000 – 2007. The original budget deficit estimated for 2009 was 3.6%. It ultimately turned out to be 7.0%. Why?

In 2008/2009 there was a global recession and Malaysia experienced negative GDP growth and lower projected revenue. The export-focused manufacturing sector was the hardest hit. The government implemented stimulus packages (RM 67 billion) and other measures to help the economy. This brought the economy from a negative GDP growth of -1.6% in 2009 to a positive growth of 7.2% in 2010 (5.4% when compared to 2008 GDP figure).

Barisan Nasional has allocated RM 232.8 billion for Budget 2012, and aims to bring the deficit down to -4.7% of GDP.

Pakatan Rakyat has allocated RM 220.5 billion for Budget 2012, and aims to bring the deficit down to -4.4% of GDP.

(NOTE: Chart on the left is the Barisan Nasional budget, chart on the right is the Pakatan Rakyat budget)

How does the Pakatan Rakyat Budget compare with the Barisan Nasional Budget for 2012?

This graph shows the allocation in spending in both budgets across 7 different areas.

Barisan Nasional (BN) allocated RM 232.8 billion.
Pakatan Rakyat (PR) allocated RM 220.5 billion.
The previous 2011 Budget was 213.9 billion.

The percentage gap in spending priorities is greatest in National and International Affairs, Education, Talent and Employment and Community Wellbeing.

Pakatan Rakyat’s spending priorities are:

1. Education, Talent and Employment (25%)
2. National and International Affairs (21%)
3. Economics and Finance (16%)
4. Community Wellbeing (15%)
5. Security (11%)
6. Agriculture and Regional Development (8%)
7. Infrastructure, Resource Management and Environment (4%)

Barisan Nasional’s spending priorities are:

1. National and International Affairs (26%)
2. Education, Talent and Employment (22%)
3. Economics and Finance (16%)
4. Community Wellbeing (12%)
5. Security (11%)
6. Agriculture and Regional Development (8%)
7. Infrastructure, Resource Management and Environment (5%)

Despite similar priorities and a 5.57% smaller budget, Pakatan Rakyat has allocated more spending than Barisan Nasional in the following areas:

1. Education, Talent and Employment (54.3 billion vs 51.4 billion)
2. Community Wellbeing (32.8 billion vs 28.1 billion)

This was achieved by reducing the allocation in other areas, primarily National and International Affairs.

Chart : How have government spending priorities changed for 2012?

Taken from PoliTweet.Org

The 2012 Budget of RM 232.8 billion shows increased spending across most Federal government agencies. However, when compared with the 2011 Budget of RM 213.9 billion, it becomes apparent that some agencies received a reduced share of the budget despite an increase in spending.

For some allocations (e.g. Simpanan Luar Jangka/Contingencies Reserve) that is to be expected. But this visualisation helps analysts see which agencies experienced the biggest shifts in spending. It also serves to highlight any incongruity between the increases in dollar figures versus the proportional change in spending. Take Education and Security for example.

For Education, the total increase for the Ministry of Education (Kementerian Pelajaran) and Ministry of Higher Education (Kementerian Pengajian Tinggi) is RM 1.8 billion.

For Security, the total increase for the Ministry of Defence (Kementerian Pertahanan) and Ministry of Home Affairs (Kementerian Dalam Negeri) is RM 1.03 billion.

Looking at the dollar figures, it would seem that both spending areas have received substantial increases. While that is true, from the chart it is clear they have a lower priority.

How was this calculated?

For Education:

1) The Ministry of Education received an increase of 1.5 billion
2) The Ministry of Higher Education received an increase of 290 million.
3) The total increase is 1.8 billion.
4) In 2011 they took up 22.6% of the budget. For 2012 they have been given 21.55%.
5) Despite the increase of 1.8 billion, it’s a loss of -1.05% since 2011.

For Security:

1) The Ministry of Defence received a decrease of 108.9 million
2) The Ministry of Home Affairs received an increase of 1.1358 billion.
3) In 2011 they took up 10.92% of the budget. For 2012 they have been given 10.47%.
4) That is a loss of -0.45% since 2011.
5) Individually the Ministry of Defence has reduced -0.57%, whereas the Ministry of Home Affairs increased by 0.12%.

In summary, both areas have received a reduced share of the budget, and the allocation share for Education has reduced at a greater rate than the allocation for Security.

Chart: The size of Malaysia’s public debt

Taken from PoliTweet.Org

The public debt is the total amount owed by the Federal Government, both domestic and external. Since 1997 the Federal Government debt (public debt) has steadily increased. The latest figure for June 2011 places the debt at RM 437 billion.

Not only has the total debt been increasing, but the rate of growth has for the most part remained high. It crossed RM100 billion in 1998. It crossed 200 billion in 2004. It crossed 300 billion in 2008. It crossed 400 billion in 2010.

In other words, the time taken for the debt to grow has been:

100 billion to 200 billion = 6 years
200 billion to 300 billion = 4 years
300 billion to 400 billion = 2 years

That is an exponential growth rate. The average growth rate from 2005 – 2010 was 10.6%/year. If the current growth rate holds steady at 10%, the public debt will cross RM 1 trillion by 2020.

(*) Domestic debt is debt owed to creditors within the country (citizens). Examples are treasury bills, securities (e.g. EPF), and other borrowings by the government.

(*) External debt is debt owed to creditors outside the country. Examples are external market loans in foreign currencies, and external bilateral and multilateral project loans.
