Malaysia announces a new economic framework, 'MADANI Economy: Empowering the people.' MADANI is the acronym for the core values: keMampanan (Sustainability), kesejAhteraan (Prosperity), Daya cipta (Innovation), hormAt (Respect), keyakiNan (Trust) and Ihsan (Compassion). This visionary framework aims to focus on two critical areas: propelling Malaysia into a leading Asian economy and enhancing the overall quality of life for its citizens.
As the nation embraces this ambitious roadmap, the property market is set to experience significant benefits and transformations. Let's delve into how the MADANI Economy can bring prosperity and growth to the Malaysian property market.
1) Property Tax Cut
Under the Madani Neighbourhood initiative, there is a 25% property tax cut for affordable homeowners in Kuala Lumpur. The affordable homes under this initiative are priced at RM150,000 and are designed for families with a monthly household income below RM5,000. 1 2 The units will be 700 to 750 square feet in size. The Madani Neighbourhood is the right move to help B40 and M40 groups own a home.
2) Economic Growth
The Madani Economy framework aims to drive positive change in Malaysia's economy. By focusing on becoming a leading Asian economy and improving the quality of life for the nation, it can create a favorable economic environment that can positively impact the property market.
3) Infrastructure Development
The Madani Economy framework may also prioritize infrastructure development, which can enhance connectivity and accessibility. Improved infrastructure can increase the value of properties located in well-connected areas, attracting investors and buyers.
4) Foreign Investment
A strong and stable economy driven by the Madani Economy framework can attract foreign investment. Foreign investors may see Malaysia as an attractive market for property investment, leading to increased demand and potential growth in the property market.
5) Capital Gains Tax
While not directly related to the property market, it is worth mentioning that there are discussions about implementing a capital gains tax in Malaysia in 2024. This could impact property investors and influence investment decisions in the property market.
Let us look forward to a future where Malaysia's property market flourishes under the influence of the MADANI Economy, elevating the nation to greater heights and enriching the lives of its citizens. The journey has just begun, and the prospects are bright as we venture into a new era of economic empowerment and progress in Malaysia.
