YAB Dato’ Seri Anwar bin Ibrahim tabled Malaysia's largest ever budget of RM394 billion for 2024, which was 2% higher than the previous year's RM386 billion. An amount of RM90 billion was allocated for development expenditure compared to RM97 billion for 2023, but the latter included a 1MDB debt repayment of US$3 billion.

The government maintains its gradual fiscal consolidation path, with the fiscal deficit improving from a projected 5% in 2023 to 4.3% in 2024. It sets out a series of targets to be met within 3 to 5 years which include achieving a fiscal ______.
