LANDING in Balikpapan after a 2-hour direct AirAsia flight from Kuala Lumpur makes you realise how close you are to some of Indonesia’s most bustling cities. My trip to Balikpapan was sparked off by a meeting I had some four months earlier with the city’s personable mayor, Bapak Rizal Effendi in Jakarta at a lunch for editors from Indonesia’s largest newspaper group, Jawa Pos. He convinced me that it is important to promote Malaysia in cities outside Jakarta. At the time I promised him that I’d visit his city the premier commercial hub in the booming natural resource province of East Kalimantan within the next four months. It wasn’t easy to arrange but with the Asean Economic Ministers’ Meeting set for Manado, I was able to pack in a quick trip to Pak Rizal’s home city. With a population of just over 600,000, Balikpapan is a thoroughly business-focused city framed by the Makassar Straits on one side and countless rolling hills on the other. There is an...

Malaysia Among the Most Competitive Countries Globally

From the desk of Dato’ Sri Mustapa Mohamed…

Sustained economic reform is essential. If there’s one lesson we can take away from the economic turmoil in the West, it’s that the failure to change will drive prosperity away. After decades of uninterrupted growth, Western nations are losing their edge in a cut-throat global environment which has seen Asia and Latin America emerge as alternative economic powerhouses. The fact that Eurozone leaders were contemplating seeking assistance from China and Brazil last weekend to bailout Greece speaks volumes on how the balance of economic power has shifted eastwards and the failure of the developed nations to reform their economies.  Malaysia, on the other hand is seeing a rise of investor confidence. This is in part due to the bold economic reforms we have undertaken since 2009, including liberalization. The proof is the fact that both the World Economic Forum (WEF) and the World Bank have recently highlighted Malaysia’s...

Can we become an innovation-led economy?
June 23, 2015 , by admin2

Moving out of the middle-income trap means, among other things, building an economy that has the capacity to innovate and use innovations to compete in the market place. So being able to convert ideas into products is a key to success. What is our record in this regard? Introduction To reach developed nation status by 2020, the Government has projected that the country needs to grow by 6% annually. And this growth has to be productivity-driven. Not only must we be able to put bricks and mortar together, but we must also be able to work smarter and be more creative and innovative. An innovation-driven economy must have the ability to commercialize ideas that individuals or R&D centres produce. It also must have the capacity to commercially exploit patented ideas and resources for public use.   Where do we stand? The latest World Economic Forum (WEF) Global Competitiveness Report ranked Malaysia the 21st most competitive out of 142 economies it surveyed. However, in the...

Media Release by Dato’ Sri Mustapa Mohamed on Supporting the Multilateral Trading System
June 23, 2015 , by admin2
YB Dato Sri Mustapa Mohamad, Minister of International Trade and Industry (MITI), stressed that the uncertain global economic scenario reflects the importance of the multilateral trading system in ensuring that economies resist protectionism. MITI Minister said this in the APEC Ministerial Meeting held in Honolulu, United States of America, on 11 November 2011. Minister Mustapa highlighted that the WTO has been an important body in ensuring that global trade is conducted according to rules and disciplines that have been collectively agreed, and that markets are kept open. Dato’ Sri Mustapa also drew attention to the fact that global supply chains are more integrated today and therefore vulnerable to the impacts of natural disaster, as seen in the Fukushima incident and the Thai floods. “Given our interdependence, we must resist protectionism and instead focus on measures that facilitate trade.” On the Doha Round, MITI Minister noted that negotiations over...

June 23, 2015 , by admin2
Sidang Kemuncak ASEAN ke 19 telah membincangkan beberapa cadangan ekonomi yang telah dikemukakan oleh Majlis Komuniti Ekonomi ASEAN. Dalam keadaan ekonomi dunia yang tidak menentu dan juga keraguan terhadap pemulihan segera ekonomi Eropah, pemimpin-pemimpin ASEAN dan rakan-rakan dialog telah bersetuju supaya ASEAN dan negara-negara Asia Timur perlu bekerjasama dan mempercepatkan integrasi ekonomi rantau ini. Pada keseluruhannya, kadar pelaksanaan purata langkah-langkah AEC bagi Fasa 1 dan 2 adalah 75.6 peratus.Kadar pelaksanaan purata bagi Malaysia untuk kedua-dua fasa adalah 88.55 peratus. Ini menunjukkan bahawa ASEAN menghadapi cabaran untuk merealisasikan Komuniti Ekonomi ASEAN pada tahun 2015, kecuali ASEAN menggandakan usaha bagi melaksanakan langkah-langkah integrasi ekonomi yang telah dipersetujui. Maklum balas yang diterima daripada sektor swasta menunjukkan bahawa ASEAN perlu memberi keutamaan kepada aspek-aspek berikut: (i) fasilitasi perdagangan; (ii) standard...
