Reading Time: 1 minute

Noted economist Professor Florencio Lopez de Silanes says that if Malaysia wishes to become a major player on the international stage, transparency is key.  Prof de Silanes, who had taught at Yale and Harvard, Ecole Normale Suprieure, and the Amsterdamn School of Business before his current post at the EDHEC Business School in Nice, states that “countries that grow faster and do better in the long run have a set of institutions that are transparent and foster creativity and productivity growth.”

Along with transparency in government and industry, Prof de Silanes suggests that fostering human capital through education is essential to helping Malaysia meet the goals of its Economic Transition Programme, which aims to bring high-income, developed-nation status to the country by 2020.
