Economist Podcast: Najib Razak on Malaysia
This week’s Economist podcast interviews Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak. In the 11 minute chat he talks about how Malaysia can compete in the global market, the challenges it faces, and (since this is The Economist) also the trial of Anwar Ibrahim and the murder of Altantuya.
Najib mentions the Free Trade Agreement negotiations with India, the success of affirmative action, and the need for bold and radical actions to “excite people”. According to him, Malaysia will profit most by becoming a center for Islamic finance and focusing on sectors like resources and aerospace.
