1Malaysia is about Malaysians working together for the betterment of one another in all forms of opportunity and service. Let us take pride in that we have uplifted the betterment of our neighbour, brother and friend. Perhaps then as 1Malaysia we could appreciate the fact that in the grand scheme of things, we are all part of one great humanity. Honestly, I used to perceive One Malaysia as a political slogan until I read this set up of 1 Malaysia Foundation. Diversity of ethnicity, language and culture can never become one. Thus, the key is to understand, and to be understood. Thereby, all citizens can live in harmony with mutual respects. So, what ONE Malaysia could means most to me, is a fair business playing field. With the advancement of today’s network communication, no one can continue to hide in isolation. We should take the leap and start prospering the country with strong entrepreneur’s ability. We should not confine ourselves to think an earning of one is an expense of another. Let’s be competitive and redefine the standards. To me, It should be something above race and religion. Eventually "Freedom" will prevails. Beside that, 1Malaysia is more like a "one nation sharing the same spirit of patriotism". perhaps we should name it as "1Malaysian", then we're talking about unity. 1Malaysia is more like a "one nation sharing the same spirit of patriotism". perhaps we should name it as "1Malaysian", then we're talking about unity.

In April 1989, however, section 312 of Act 727 of the Penal Code was amended substantially to permit abortion if a medical practitioner was of the opinion, formed in good faith, that the continuance of the pregnancy would involve risk to the life of the pregnant woman, or injury to the mental or physical health of the pregnant woman, greater than if the pregnancy were terminated.

The industry’s good performance in 1985, combined with a strong year in 1984, gave every indication that the Swiss watch industry was back on its feet agter struggling for much of the previous decade. 1 This case was prepared by Charles Anderer, case writer and research associate, under the supervision of Warren J. Keegan, Professor of International Business and Marketing, as part of the Leading Edge Case Study Project, Center for International Business Studies, Pace University. This project6 was funded in part form a grant from the United States Department of Education © 1986, Pace University. This situation is fictional. Its purpose is to highlight the issues faced by the company described herein. The comeback has been led by the success of Swatch (a blend of Swiss and watch). Over 10 million of its brightly colored, plastic wristwatches were sold worldwide in 1984-1985. success had been most notable in the United States, where Swatch’s latest move was the launching of a diversification program aimed at making the company a total fashion enterprise. Whether or not this expansion of the Swatch product line proved successful remained to be seen. What was certain, on the other hand, is that the Swatch watch had given new life (and increased market share) to an industry that was recently engaged in a very difficult struggle with Asian competitors. What was also clear is that Swatch’s willingness to break with convention, especially in the area of marketing......

...invitation, I hope to do justice and I will be thrilled if the little that I am going to share can spark a significant enough interest to enact discussion, discourse and action that will bring about betterment to us all in our life contributing towards a sustainable growth and development for Malaysia. Before I push through, I would like to appeal that every each of us free our mind, shed all the pre-conceive thoughts that we have and take a neutral stance instead. Likewise, we must always remember that the issues at hand are the focus and not the actors, even though at times we know we have to acknowledge them. To my mind, this is important and could well be the pre-requisite for us to have a fair and meaningful discussion which is needed for us to progress. While we have to appreciate the ideals and wishes of all sectors, we must also be realistic in our approach for we all know that there are boundaries and constraints that bind us. For this to happen, we need to engage with one another and if needs be, compromised to aligned our minds and chart the way forward as we all deemed most appropriate. Ladies and Gentlemen, A lot has been written about the formation of Malaysia and I am happy to note and observe that they are consistent. However, I also observed and am appalled with the fact that most, especially our young ones are ignorance about it and worst, some does not have any interest in it. In our endeavor to push forward, we should not forget our past......

...As a net oil exporter and Southeast Asia's second largest energy producer behind Indonesia, Malaysia is the country most threatened by falling energy prices. In 2013, Malaysia exported the equivalent of 73 percent of its GDP, of which 22 percent came from exports of natural gas (9 percent), refined oil products (8 percent) and crude oil (5 percent). As of November 2014, Malaysian energy export revenues were marginally growing compared with the year before. Income from overseas crude sales rose 8.2 percent year-on-year, but revenue from natural gas and refined products exports grew by only 1.9 and 0.8 percent respectively. Although numbers are not in yet, revenues likely fell sharply in December and have continued to slide into January and February as benchmark oil prices dipped under $50 per barrel. Reduced export revenues will not be the only place Malaysia will feel the effects of falling oil prices. In 2013, the latest year with full data available, oil-related income accounted for 29.5 percent of total government revenue, but only about 55 percent of that income came from taxes and export duties on domestic production. The remainder took the form of "dividends" from state-owned energy firm Petronas, which runs extensive international upstream and midstream operations in addition to its domestic functions, directly exposing it to fluctuations in global oil prices. On Dec. 2, Petronas announced it would reduce its total payments to the government by $11.8 billion in 2015...

...A Trip to Malaysia Travelling is a sense of adventure that excites people, and also is a big chance for us to learn about other cultures and the way people live their lives. While many tourists travel to France, England or some famous countries in Europe, fewer travel to a small country in Asia. As someone who loves to explore and enjoy new things, 3 years ago in the summer, my boyfriend and I decided to backpack to Malaysia. It was a fantastic trip and an amazing experience for us that you should definitely try it. In this country, there are three destinations that travelers should not miss: the Petronas Twin Towers, Golden Triangle area, and The Genting Highland Park.   When we arrived into Kuala Lumpur, we headed straight to the Petronas Twin Towers, which are also known as the world’s tallest tower. They are an impressive icon of the capital of Malaysia that are visible from about everywhere in the city, and dominate the night sky. The Petronas Twin Towers are 1,483 feet tall, have 88 stories, and were completed in 1998. The architecture was very magnificent from the outside, especially at night, they look like ice sculptures. The most attractive architecture of the tower is that at the 41st and 42nd level, there is a skybridge connecting the two towers. The bridge is 170 meters above the ground, 58 meters long and weighs 750 tons. My boyfriend and I drove the high-speed lift that zooms up to the skybridge on the 41st floor; we walked across the skybridge to take some......

...to reinvent the corporate enterprise, so as to efficiently meet emerging global competition. The world’s economies are tending towards market orientation. In market-oriented economies, companies are less protected by traditional and prescriptive legal rules and regulations. Malaysia is no exception and the shift to a full-disclosure regime, to be completed by the year 2001 is such an example. Hence there is the need for companies to be more efficient and well- managed than ever before to meet existing and anticipated world-wide competition. The role of directors then increases in importance. The role of the board in hiring the right management, compensating, monitoring, replacing and planning the succession of senior management is crucial, as management undertakes the key responsibility for the enterprise’s efficiency and competitiveness. The role of the Code is to guide boards by clarifying their responsibilities, and providing prescriptions strengthening the control exercised by boards over their companies. 1.9 In developing the Code we have been mindful of developments in other jurisdictions. We have endeavoured to keep the discussion at an international level. Standards developed for Malaysia must measure up to international thinking on this subject. 2 The Approach Under the Malaysian Code on Corporate Governance 2.4 In this respect it is equally important that these prescriptions are accompanied by a rule requiring disclosure of the extent to which......

...THE POWER OF ONE-THE CONCEPT OF ONE MALAYSIA January 12, 2010 by mthago One means undivided. One means unity and one means power. When there is unity there is power. Men try to gain power and glory and men knows that they cannot gain power and glory without unity. Men try to gain unity through many ways and history has shown us that most of the attempt to unite the people has failed. Men will unite when they have similarities and most great leaders of the past have tried to use the factor of race to unite the people. Genghis Khan has tried to unite the Mongol and Hitler has tried to unite the German. These great leaders try to achieve unity using race as the factor of unity. They unite their race by inculcating in their heart the same desire. They inculcate the desire to become great people by conquering other people and to amass their wealth. Without having unity of purpose people cannot be united unless they have the same desire or goal .Genghis Khan and Hitler inculcate in the heart of their people the same desire to become the Great people that conquer and control others. In order to unite the people, the leaders try to make the people to have the same goal or desire .The easiest desire to inculcate is the desire to have power and wealth. However this desire is short lived and once this desire vanishes the strength of unity fades away. Genghis Khan and Hitler can only unite their people and become conqueror for a very short period of time. The empire that they have set...
