‘50 Years of New Economic Policy’ to assess impact and shortcomings of policy
The Institute for Democracy and Economic Affairs (IDEAS) embarked on a research and advocacy project on Malaysia’s New Economic Policy (NEP), with the aim to revisit and reexamine the successes and shortcomings of the policy, as well as its implementation in subsequent development plans. Launched in conjunction with the 50th anniversary of the NEP this year.
