Mangos and Malaysia's tight budget

Jennifer Pak explains why Malaysia's 2014 budget may be unpopular with people on the streets of Kuala Lumpur.

Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak has announced plans to impose a 6% goods and services tax by April 2015.

The government needs to cut its large fiscal deficit.

However, a consumption tax would be unpopular on the streets of Kuala Lumpur, as Jennifer Pak reports.
