PM: Govt may impose measures to protect ringgit again

Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad has said the government may impose measures to protect the ringgit again if speculators continue to attack the currency. Dr Mahathir said this during the Youths Ask Tun Answers session on Sunday, when asked if Malaysia would face an economic crisis again such as the ones experienced in 1997 and 2008. The Premier added that the ringgit must be protected from being devalued by speculators.
