New Straits Times - - News - Ber­nama

Malaysia’s econ­omy is in need of a struc­tural change and there­fore na­tional poli­cies should be proac­tive and not re­ac­tive, said Datuk Seri Na­jib Razak.

The prime min­is­ter said that for Malaysia to re­main com­pet­i­tive, it needed in­fra­struc­ture and in­vest­ment in hu­man cap­i­tal.

“We have taken steps to in­crease the value chain by tar­get­ing ser­vices and higher in­come for the peo­ple,” he said in his 52 post­ing on his blog, www.na­ji­brazak.com, last night.

Na­jib was com­ment­ing on the con­sul­ta­tion ses­sion with aca­demi­cians from the fac­ulty of eco­nom­ics and busi­ness of pub­lic and pri­vate in­sti­tu­tions of higher learn­ing in Malaysia that was held at Par­lia­ment.

“All those present were spe­cial­ists with in-depth knowl­edge of the econ­omy, and their views can help us move for­ward as a coun­try in this rapidly de­vel­op­ing world.”
