Petroliam Nasional Bhd (Petronas) can afford the RM18 billion dividend for the government that was announced under Budget 2021. Anything more will be deliberated by the board, according to its president and group chief executive officer Tengku Muhammad Taufik Tengku Aziz.
“If you ask me now if the dividend of RM18 billion announced under Budget 2021 is something we can bear, my answer is yes. It is still within the affordability,” he said.
