Anything or whatever happens on the internet , the Internet community is able to relate fast through the Web especially , the Social Networking site whom are able to relate fast from many , among many to utmost many , which is understandably why they have all the censors in place as most major Internet companies like ( Search engine site ) and the (Social networking site ) are understood to have hundred of Human censors to monitor their users , and anyone could have post any sensitive issue in one of the world most populated Country anytime.

Expect Positive growth in Asia in 2010

2009 was a rough year just passed ; now we have to embrace 2010. Many people still wonder if the year ahead would be for better or for worse. As the financial crisis is almost over, people are looking forward to better promising growth in the coming year.

A source from Citibank Singapore shows that, the gross domestic product, (GDP), is expected to grow, especially for the Asia countries. It was said that the first half of the year would be better than the second half. Henderson Global Investors has reported that growth brought by low interest rates, government spending, falling core inflation and a stabilising labour market may give a less certain second half of the year due to spending from government fiscal measure would have wane off eventually

Even so, Asia countries are expected to do better due to the “stability” in employment rates recently. Also, the free trade agreement between China and South-East Asian countries came into force this year, in turn looks promising in the trading industry. Rising global demand and re stocking are likely to boost exports ,manufacturing and trade related services.

  1. The expected GDP forecast for China will be around 9.8 % while Asia itself should achieve 7.7% ,and India another major Growth Country should achieve 8.5 % .
  2. Asian economies may out perform the rest of the world .Singapore is also opening its first two Integrated Resorts this years, in which will bring 15 to 20 percentage growth in its tourist industry., while countries from Malaysia to Hanoi will have some hard time to balance their act

With such positive growth expected for the coming year, we must also stay alert as the past two years has shown many turn of events, of which most were unexpected.

As the new year comes ahead, the Chinese Zodiac Tiger will roar into this New Year , It will bring recycled Wealth , as the coming year lack water element , such recycled wealth will be the after effort from the Global stimulus program since last year from the economic Crisis . A good example will be Japan .

However Productivity will be increased as New technology will be the major driving force to develop New Niche and New Media Industries ,the recycled Wealth may thus be driven to generate New Media Income , or biomedical development .

The New Tiger year however does carries a strong Metal element ,which suggest that those in office will be able to hold authority for this period of time , this hopefully will bring stability throughout the year especially in the leading economies .

Will this cause a decline of Wealth for Johor Bahru?

On Jan 7th 2010, there was an article which I came across, titled “No Petrol Subsidy for Non-Citizens From May 1”. The article’s emphasis is just as the title, the increase in price of petrol for non-citizens. Johor Bahru has been visited by many Singaporeans who went there to purchase cheap petrol and make some round of shopping in the town
With this new regulation in place, it might just mean that Singaporeans that are looking for cheap petrol, may not go over to Johor Bahru anymore. With this group of buyers gone, Malaysia would see quite a great drop in number of people who find no reason to go shopping in Johor again .
This justify a re-consideration by the Minister , as johor will feel the pinch .
When the new Johor Custom was opened early last year , there was a big divert of traffic in the city , and former shops which were bustling with good business ,suddenly see an out flow of their turnover ,as traffic was divert direct to Johor town ,giving the city a miss . Business came down , and now they will be affected twice , but this time almost the whole town will be affected .
On top of that, the subsidy of the petrol is going to be sub-categorised throughout the Country . This means that not all Malaysians are getting their petrol subsidy also . Only those who are in the lower income range, and can afford cars with only small capacity engines will not be affected much .
On the foreigners end, there really still is not much lost for them as well , especially for Singaporean with their Strong dollar .
Going by the exchange rates, overall, prices of oil are still cheaper in Malaysia, in comparison to prices in Singapore. Therefore, the decline in wealth for which Johor will face will be imminent at the start. However, in longer terms, Johor will still be in good wealth as it is now.
Maybe the new Integrated Resorts ,opening in Singapore soon will also attract some tourist from other countries whom visit Singapore to cross the borders to get their Passport Chopped with the Malaysia Immigration chop , then maybe visit Maybe Iskandar , or visit the city to boost some shopping sales , left-out by those whom not happy with the new Petrol prices.
