Malaysia conjures up images of dynamic cities, rainforests, varied races and cultures and amazing cuisine. After 60 years of post-independence history, Malaysia’s economic transformation is nothing short of astounding, with the country a top-25 exporting nation leading in natural resources, manufacturing and services. On the cusp of being a high-income nation, Malaysia recognises that – for sustainable success in an uncertain and dynamic world – the relevance and resilience of its people is key.
This report draws on inputs from over 40 Malaysian experts from a diverse range of sectors, professions and experience. They identified drivers shaping the quality and quantity of Malaysia's human capital and uncovered the important issues that need attention in the development of the country. The authors then used their inputs coupled with trend data and other relevant literature to scope, explore and develop a number of alternative futures of Malaysia in 2035. These are sometimes extreme by design but are used to provoke and stimulate thinking outside the box. Each has implications for policy makers, educationists, training institutions, employers and individual members of the workforce. Four scenarios are published here, together with the implications for the state, society, organisations and individuals.
