William Cheng threaten, Ibrahim say let them leave!

Perkasa says let Lion Group leave

By Shannon Teoh

KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 14 — Datuk Ibrahim Ali has urged the government to ignore the threat by Tan Sri William Cheng to move his Lion Group’s steel operations to Indonesia, stating that the national interest must come before that of “one or two greedy individuals.”

The Perkasa president was quoted by Utusan Malaysia assistant chief editor Datuk Zaini Hassan as saying that the decision by Blackberry smartphone makers Research In Motion to set up shop here proved that “Malaysia continues to be a destination for giant investors of the world.”

“The suggestion by Lion Group to move to Indonesia is a threat that should be ignored. What is important is that the government must be firm and not bow to such threats.

“The government must look at the interests of the country before the interests of one or two greedy corporate individuals (who believe) their interests are more important than that of the country and the public,” Ibrahim was quoted as saying by Zaini in his column titled “Is it wrong to be a Malay ultra?” today.

Lion Group chairman Cheng said earlier this week that he may consider moving Lion’s steel manufacturing operations to Indonesia if Putrajaya failed to levy tariffs on imports of hot-rolled coils from both Indonesia and Thailand, which in turn charged a 48 per cent and 43 per cent duty on the same product from Malaysia.

China Steel Corp, Taiwan’s largest steel manufacturer, has offered to buy Lion Group’s steel businesses, according to a Bloomberg report quoting sources.

China Steel had made a binding offer for Lion Group assets including Amsteel Mills Bhd and Megasteel Bhd in a deal that might be valued at more than US$1 billion (RM3 billion).

Ibrahim also added that the government should continue the Kedai Rakyat 1 Malaysia programme despite Cheng’s concern that the budget sundry shop was hurting other small retailers.

Responding to the Associated Chinese Chambers of Commerce and Industry of Malaysia president’s remarks, the Pasir Mas MP said “this group only cares about themselves” and “only looks out for businessmen but what about the interests of the public including poor Chinese and Indians?”

Malaysian Insiders

During the financial crisis, Lion were given much help from the Government to solve their debt burden. William paid hardly any money, while Malay businessmen paid almost up to RM1 billion.

Still this selfish greedy bastard are not thankful. Stop pandering to these unwoprthy Malaysians!

    Ibrahim Ali has no clue what he is talking about. Vietnam and Thailand impose tariffs on the steel they import from Malaysia and Malaysia does not reciprocate?So Ibrahim Ali thinks this is alright??

    Fine, let them leave. I wonder if Ibrahim Ali realises that a large proportion of their employees are Malays.

    That busted Willian Cheng dont know how to thank the Malay especially the Government who had been helping them to become the Giant & Conglomerate in their business thus far.

    That is chinese, who is always take "Money" as their GOD and ignoring what is the community had done and help and supporting his businesses all this while!.

    If, the busted Willian Cheng think that others is better than Malaysia (who bring him to become the giant) so, by all means get out from Malaysia now. Dont waste your time here and you are not welcome anymore.

    You know that this proverb " Menanam tebu di bibir mulut dan tak sedar di untung dan bagai melepaskan ANJING tersepit" Cibai you Willian Cheng!.

    Pindah lah ke Indonesia kalau berani? Dengan undang undangnya yang carca marba dan simpang siur.

    Rasuah yang tak henti henti. Pemereksa pemereksa pelawat industrinya yang selalu melawat dan minta wang.

    Sistem letriknya yang tidak stabil. Jakarta saja kerap kali mempunyai gangguan letrik.

    Berbagai bagai lagi. Malah lagi rugi dari kena cukai bahan mentah yang di import.

    Dah cuba nanti tau la. Pergi la!

    Ini ibarat orang nak pergi tempat maju dia pula pergi tempat mundur....

    Pertamanya, kita pembaca harus fikir bahwa, adakah ini satu threat, atau komen biasa sahaja daripada William Cheng kepada wartawan busines/ekonomi ?

    Yang kedua, mungkin kamu tidak tahu, William Cheng dahulu menjalankan busines steel di Indonesia sebelum pindah ke Malaysia.

    Yang ketiga, William Cheng adalah tokoh yang menyokong Polici Ekonomi Baru, di mana dialah salah seorang businessman Cina yang pertama serahkan sebahagian sahamnya kepada bumiputra untuk memuaskan kuota.

    "Fine, let them leave. I wonder if Ibrahim Ali realises that a large proportion of their employees are Malays..." Kata Anonymous di atas..

    Then, what's the problem. Those so called Malay employee can still survive by doing other thing, even doing kampung works. After all they are not paid executive pay..

    The real problem is, the Chinese hardware shop owner, the Chinese contractor their mostly chinese employees and their families yang akan menghadapai BIGGGG PROBBBLEM... They have enjoyed rich life, and the thought of unable to carry businee anymore really scarred them like hell...
