Wawasan 2020


Wawasan 2020

"Wawasan 2020" or Vision 2020 is a Malaysian ideal introduced by the former prime minister of Malaysia, Mahathir Bin Mohamad during the tabling of the Sixth Malaysia Plan in 1991. The vision calls for a self-sufficient industrial, Malaysian-centric developed nation, complete with an economy, in 2020 that will be eightfold stronger than the economy of the early 1990s.

"Wawasan 2020" is also the title of an article by William Greider about globalization in Malaysia.

Challenges in the vision

In several of Mahathir's speeches, he outlined nine challenges that Malaysia must overcome to achieve Vision 2020.

*Challenge 1: To form a nation that stands as one.
*Challenge 2: To produce a Malaysian community that has freedom, strength, and full of self confidence.
*Challenge 3: To develop a mature democratic community.
*Challenge 4: To form a community that has high morale, ethics and religious strength.
*Challenge 5: To cultivate a community that is matured and tolerant.
*Challenge 6: To form a progressive science community.
*Challenge 7: To cultivate a community rich in values and loving culture.
*Challenge 8: To ensure the formation of a community with a fair economy.
*Challenge 9: To cultivate a prosperous community.
