This book analyses the Malaysian economy amidst the smooth transfer of power from Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad to Dato' Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi towards the end of 2003. With Abdullah at the helm, Malaysia's future is in good hands. The wave of globalization, the liberalization of markets and a maturing society in terms of political and social sophistication provide both opportunities and challenges for the nation. Abdullah has, in 2004, continued to build upon Dr. Mahathir's many achievements. At the same time, he has introduced and implemented strategies of his own to propel the nation forward in the 21st century. To achieve the goals of Vision 2020, there will be many obstacles that the nation will have to overcome. At a time of extraordinary change, Abdullah has emerged as a leader in his own right, steering the nation towards further socioeconomic growth with greater equity and national unity.
