This paper is an historical description of the country of Malaysia during the year 1965 told in first person from the Prime Minister’s point of view. It describes the political, economic and social situation in Malaysia at those times.
1965 is a time of change and revolution in South East Asia and as the Prime Minister of the newly formed Federation of Malaysia I have a challenge in front of me that needs to be faced with wisdom and innovation. For Malaysia to enter the modern age it must make alterations in its political, social and economic policies. We have been ruled by a colonial power for too long and must learn to survive and grow on our own. We must tackle our ethnic diversity, and restrain traditional enmities amongst our neighbors. My country needs to focus on scientific and industrial development and education instead of racial differences and old world values. Malaysia must become a united nation and move forward in the 20th century an example for others and a subject of pride for its people.
