Liow Never Fails In Convincing Lulu How Stupid He Is

B Braun's VP said that that the company was considering to move part of its operations, specifically pharmaceuticals, from Penang to Indonesia because it did not wish to go through “medical middlemen” to sell its products. The current practise is to go through a third party.

Our very "intelligent", mega embarassing Health Ministers solution/explanation to that?
"The Health Ministry has always practised the open tender process when buying pharmaceutical and medical products, says Minister Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai. He said those registered with the Ministry of Finance could go through Pharmaniaga Bhd that had the exclusive rights to distribute pharmaceutical and medical products to the ministry."
uh... duh......
Apa itu Pharmaniaga????
the third party-la
duh

This is like saying...'you can do it any way you like as long as it is my way'....or you can choose any colour as long as it is red.

Another example of a stupid BN minister!

Wiseman Liow is absolutely korrek: Exclusive rights (read Only-Man) is NOT the same as Middlemen (read plural), so there is no middlemen, only 1 Man.

but pharmaniaga practised open tender lah. maybe braun just pissed off with malaysia and prefer indon for low cost, but use "meddle of the middleman" as excuse.....

Pharmaniaga? If my memory serves me right, isn't that Mokhzani Mahathir's company? Or has he sold it to Muhyiddin's nephew? Wonder how many shares Liow holds in his wife's name? :-)

Ha ha ha you are right. Open tender with one company given EXCLUSIVE rights.

So Parmaniaga is a GLC?

Antares,

Pharmaniaga is a GLC under the UEM Group stable. It is mainly owned by UEM Group Berhad with a small minority shareholding. It was originally the Government Medical Stores that was privatised during Tun M's day.

Imagine Pharmaniaga doing this - set up 10 companies - bid for the same tender and one of them wins. Did I miss out something here?

Only "wayang kulit" a.k.a skin show. Who master mind the cigarette box with pictures. Do cigarette company have to pay royalties for each picture? Just 10 cents per box enough to make them 'makan tak habis' for 3 generation. I fully support if they ban cigarette instead of imposing all kind of their share of commission on cigarette.
