On 17 May, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak attended the Global Competitiveness: Malaysia’s Aspirations at the Global Science and Innovation Advisory Council (GSIAC) - Khazanah Distinguished Lecture Series which was held in London. During the event, he gave a speech on “Global Competitiveness: Malaysia’s Aspirations”.

“We need a real focus on research and development and on better processes in the industry. We need to focus not just on innovation, but on commercialising innovation,” he said.

Through raising the level of education and skills in the country, the productivity also increases — thus, bringing higher wages and growth to the country.

"And that means our citizens are being empowered by having the skills and aptitude to adapt to the world in which standing still is not an option," he added.

Alongside with government economic plan and effort, he also encouraged, and promised will supporting, the private sectors to participate in these big tasks, including in training at all stages of life. 

He strongly believes in Malaysia’s potential to be able to find well-balanced, sustainable growth models that will create opportunities for all.
