Extract from “We need intelligent answers about TPPA”

The TPPA is not necessarily a bad deal for Malaysia. Although there are disadvantages, there are significant advantages as well. Issues like unaffordable medicines can be mitigated and TPPA terms like the liberalisation of government procurement processes could potentially leave less room for corruption.

But if the government wants the public to support the TPPA, it must be willing to explain it fully and without any disrespect of the public’s intelligence. The Prime Minister may be able to select his cabinet, but he cannot select his audience. Unlike him, members of the public value intelligence over loyalty and giving sensible answers on the TPPA would be the first step to persuading them to accept it.
