CHANGES FOR HOPE : 20 Strategies To Become A Developed Country

After over 52 years of achieving glorious freedom and leaders have changed; Malaysia is still the most renowned as a Muslim country with a Vision 2020, a country which is in the process of becoming a fully industriallized economy by the Year 2020.

The dream of Vision 2020 (Wawasan 2020) was the creation and vision of the 4th Prime Ministerof Malaysia, Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad (Prime Minister from 1981-2003). Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad is the author’s idol and is also known as ‘Malaysia’s Father of Modernization’ and ‘The Leader of Malaysia is Able (Malaysia Boleh)’ who has contributed a lot to Malaysia and its citizens.

Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad’s largest contribution to the country was when he did not hand over Malaysia to the IMF during the financial crisis in 1997 and 1998. Even though the pressure of the country’s politics which threatened the country’s leadership was much more transparent than the economic catastrophe, Tun Dr. Mahathir tenaciously put his foot down and did not relinquish Malaysia to the IMF. With his strategically calculated move, he successfully saved Malaysia from being ruled by the new economic colonialist super economic power known as the IMF.

The author has mentioned that Tun Dr. Mahathir is a highly respectable leader and is adored by the Malaysian citizens. He is the author’s idol because of his courage that persevered through the troubling times and his future oriented visions.

It cannot be said enough that Tun Dr. Mahathir has given a lot to the country and its fellow citizens. As a dynamic leader who possessed visions and missions in his mind, he was courageous to deal with any challenges being put before him which was enough to threaten the whole country beyond the 21st century. Until now, there has yet to be anyone in his equivalence making any drastic changes like he did for Malaysia today, which was what each and every resident of this country would have idolized to be.

The author’s inspiration to begin writing this book was since 2005, which was the second year after he migrated to one of the Middle Eastern countries, the United Arab Emirates (UAE). He resided in a world renowned city known as Dubai. The migration was meant to achieve business opportunities while learning the secrets of foreign investment policies and the reasoning behind Dubai’s success. The author was interested in researching the astounding policy of Dubai’s government. The support and encouragement from his aristocracy are one of the factors that have driven him to make this book a dream come true.

Even during this current economic crisis, there is a golden opportunity for Malaysia to adapt to changes that can convince the global world to put Malaysia on the map and make it their investment destination, hence giving Malaysia a boost of confidence and to enhance the image of the country which has deteriorated in the international level.

The most obvious one is that the author would like to revolutionize the focus of Malaysians from looking at the economic point of views from the political and social domestic issues to a drastic change which is to go back to the objective of the Vision 2020 to become a fully developed country by the year 2020. This is a dream that all of the Malaysians have envisioned since the beginning. This should be a guideline so that everyone is focused in making it a reality even before the year 2020.

PERUBAHAN MEMBAWA HARAPAN: 20 Strategi Untuk Menjadi Negara Maju

Setelah lebih 52 tahun negara merdeka, pemimpin negara silih berganti, negara Malaysia terkenal sebagai sebuah negara Islam dengan Wawasan 2020 negara yang sedang dalam proses untuk menjadi sebuah negara maju dengan sepenuhnya menjelang tahun2020.

Impian Wawasan 2020 negara yang diilhamkan adalah Wawasan bekas Perdana Menteri yang keempat Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad (menjadi Perdana Menteri 1981-2002 Bersara) adalah idola Penulis, yang dikenali sebagai ‘Bapa Kemodenan Malaysia dan Pemimpin Malaysia Boleh’ yang banyak berjasa kepada negara dan rakyat Malaysia.

Jasa Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad yang paling besar ialah apabila Tun tidak menyerahkan negara kepada IMF semasa krisis kewangan, 1997/98, walapun tekanan kemelut politik negara ketika itu sangat kuat mengancam kepimpinan negara. Keadaan ketika itu amat genting selain dari krisis ekonomi, Tun tidak berganjak untuk menyerah negara Malaysia kepada IMF sebagai tindakan pintar dan tegas kepimpinan Tun yang telah menyelamatkan negara dari penjajahan baru kuasa ekonomi dunia.

Pada penulis Tun adalah bekas Perdana Menteri yang sangat dihormati dan disayangi sebagai idola pemimpin penulis yang berwawasan dan berani yang tidak boleh dilupakan oleh setiap warga negara Malaysia sepanjang zaman.

Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad adalah idola penulis yang paling besar jasanya kepada negara dan rakyat Malaysia sebagai pemimpin yang dinamik yang berwawasan dan berani menentang apa jua cabaran yang cuba mengancam kepentingan negara pada abad ke 21. Sampai sekarang masih belum jelas lagi ada penggantinya pada hari ini, yang berwawasan dan berani seperti Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad untuk melakukan perubahan drastik seperti yang dikehendaki oleh rakyat negara ini.

Penulis melihat krisis ekonomi dunia sekarang sebagai peluang keemasan kepada negara Malaysia untuk melakukan sesuatu perubahan yang boleh menyakinkan masyarakat dunia untuk menjadikan Malaysia sebagai destinasi pelaburan mereka dan mengembalikan ‘keyakinan dan imej’ negara’ yang semakin menurun di peringkat antarabangsa yang perlu ditangani segera.

Dan yang paling jelas sekali, penulis ingin mengalihkan fokus pandangan masyarakat negara supaya lebih fokus kepada matlamat ekonomi daripada isu-isu domestik politik dan sosial, diperbetulkan dengan pandangan ke arah perubahan yang drastik boleh dilakukan dengan kembali kepada asas matlamat Wawasan 2020. Untuk menjadi negara maju tahun 2020, wajib dijadikan sasaran tepat dan hala tuju bakal pemimpin baru negara dapat dilaksanakan sebelum menjelang tahun 2020 menjadi kenyataan.

Ilham penulis untuk menulis buku ini semenjak tahun 2005 iaitu tahun kedua, penulis berada di perantauan di Timur Tengah, Dubai. Penghijrahan penulis untuk mencari peluang perniagaan di rantauan sambil membuat kajian analisis dengan mempelajari rahsia tarikan pelaburan asing di negeri Dubai.

Minat penulis untuk mengkaji dasar pelaburan kerajaan Dubai adalah kerana kejayaan dasar kerajaannya yang mampu menarik dan menyakinkan pelaburan FDI untuk menjadi pelabur di negeri Dubai dengan pembangunan menakjubkan di mata dunia ini.

Penulis juga berterima kasih kepada puterinya Lisa Azmy, Zam, Azammim, Azamars, Azim, Norma, Rina, Pn. Kihan Langgit, kedua ibubapa, adik kakak yang beliau sayangi dan sahabat handai penulis sama ada yang berada di dalam atau di luar negara yang mengenali diri penulis dan yang telah banyak memberi galakan dan sokongan moral kepada penulis untuk menulis buku ini menjadi kenyataan sebagai hadiah penulis kepada warga pembaca dan para pemimpin negara yang budiman.

Penulis ingin mengucapkan ribuan terima kasih kepada sahabat-sahabat, kenalan-kenalan yang mengenali diri penulis, sama ada yang berada di luar negara dan dalam negara yang tidak dapat penulis sebutkan nama-nama mereka di dalam senarai buku ini, Insya Allah, semoga Allah memberkati sokongan dan dorongan mereka dengan keberkatan daripada Allah s.w.t. dan juga dengan ucapan ribuan terima kasih.

Dan akhir sekali, untuk para pembaca dan para intelektual ekonomi semoga buku ini dapat dijadikan sebagai bahan penyelidikan yang boleh dimanfaatkan oleh bangsa dan negara sebagai panduan ilmu untuk kejayaan buat selama-lamanya. Sebagai usaha solusi pemikiran keluar dari kebuntuan untuk menangani setiap krisis itu ada jawapan.
