“Even in the worst of times, despite my criticisms of leaders and their leadership, I’ve always believed that Malaysia is a blessed land and no matter how bad the situation is, things will eventually fall in place. Of course, this believe does not stem merely from wishes and hopes but rather on the premise that Malaysians had shown how resilient and resourceful they are that when the chips are down, they’ll pick themselves up sooner rather than later.”What Does the Future Hold for Malaysia?
“In this new and challenging economic landscape, we need to arm ourselves with new knowledge and take the risks to apply technology not just to increase output and productivity but also to create new products and services, new methods and processes. The Fourth Industrial Revolution calls for a new level of thinking, and in many cases, novel approaches to business.”Malaysia INC 2.0: Government and Business Driving Development and Growth
“We should not discourage women from working. They should work and acquire even more skills. Women are especially well suited for intellectual work and have provided valuable intellectual input into the development and management of this country, much more than the numbers indicate. Both management and administration are important to development, and more and more women have proven that they can deliver”.The Role of Women and Youth in National Development
