Diesel to cost RM3.35 per litre starting today

China Press, Sin Chew Daily, Kwong Wah Daily and Guang Ming Daily headlined Finance Minister II Datuk Seri Amir Hamzah Azizan announced that starting today the price of diesel in Peninsular Malaysia will float freely with market prices. The price per litre of diesel will increase from the current subsidized rate of RM2.15 to the unsubsidized rate of RM3.35.

Despite facing significant market challenges, Malaysian participants at the 2024 FIABCI World Prix d’Excellence Awards advanced with distinction on the international stage, leveraging forward-thinking ideas and new perspectives, and showcasing the unique features of their respective projects, is the headline in Nanyang Daily.


Nanyang Daily highlighted that the government aims to promote technical and vocational education, shifting from the belief that university is the only path.

Strategic partnerships among government, institutions, and industries are vital for student employment and meeting workforce needs, the daily said. Despite past setbacks, the Unity Government is dedicated to improving technical education, ensuring progress toward a more robust and rational education system, the daily added. 

Sin Chew Daily highlighted as a global superpower, the United States (U.S) should mediate the Israel-Palestine conflict to align with global interests.

Criticizing China for human rights abuses while condoning Israel’s actions against Palestinians undermines America’s moral authority and credibility in addressing other countries’ issues, said the daily.
