Malaysia - Introduction,
the population of Malaysia is about 22 million. They are a
uniquely diverse group of people. The earliest inhabitants are the
"orange Azalea" in the Peninsula. There are similar
tribes in Sarawak and Sabah who still pursue a nomadic way of
life. The next immigrants were the Proto-Malays and the Deutero-Malays.
Other indigenous peoples of Malaysia are collectively called
"Bumiputra", or "sons of the soil". They make
up 59% of the population. Later, the Chinese and Indians migrated
from India and China respectively. Today, the population of the Chinese is 32% while the Indians make up 9% of the population of
Malaysia's history has been one of continual interaction with
foreign powers and influences because of its strategic position
between the Indian Ocean and the South China Sea. Its location has
made it the meeting place for both traders and travelers alike.
Hindu-Buddhist influence was strong in the northwest before the
coming of Islam. Archaeological findings in Kedah provide evidence
of a Hindu-Buddhist civilization that dated back to 300AD. It
flourished as an important center of trade and commerce until the
13th Century when Malacca, abundant in spices, attracted colonial
powers. By 1511, Malacca fell to the Portuguese, then in 1641 the
Dutch took over, and finally the British in 1815. The British
consolidated their hold on the Malay states following Francis
Light's arrival in Penang in 1786. Across the seas, on the island
of Borneo, Sarawak was ruled by a British adventurer, James
Brooke, and his descendants since 1841 to 1888. Sarawak and North
Borneo (Sabah) thus became British protectorates. In the
1930's, the first stirring of Malayan nationalism were felt.
Following the end of World War II, there was a resurface of the
nationalism movement culminating in the independence for the
Federation of Malaya on August 31, 1957. In 1963, Malaysia was
formed. Today, Malaysia is a prominent member of the Association
of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN).
Malaysia's economy was once exclusively based on agricultural
commodities. It is still one of the world's largest producers of
rubber, tin, palm oil, timber, and pepper. However, the current
government has aspired to shift the economy to manufacturing and
service based. Today, manufacturing forms the largest single
component of Malaysia's economy. Revenue from oil and natural gas
reserves together with increasing foreign investments have helped
the economy diversify into car production and the manufacturing of
computers. Tourism is also emerging as a major source of revenue.
Malaysia has become one of the greatest economic success stories
Malaysia declared independence on the August 31, 1957 from the
United Kingdom. The capital of Malaysia is Kuala Lumpur. Malaysia
comprises 13 states and two federal territories - Kuala Lumpur and
Labuan (an island off the coast of Sabah). Nine of the states have
a hereditary ruler from which the Supreme Head of State, the Yang
Di-Pertuan Agong (King), is elected every five years. The
government is based on parliamentary democracy. The head of the
government, the Prime Minister, current prime minister Datuk Dr.
Mahathir Mohd., heads the cabinet of Ministers.
