Reading Time: 1 minute

At the first ever Global Science and Innovation Advisory Council held in New York City, the Prime Minister of Malaysia unveiled plans for their new “green economy” initiative.  This program, set to coincide with Malaysia’s Economic Transition Program that aims to bring developed-nation status to the country by 2020, will focus on green technology, environmentally sustaining projects, and smart cities and villages that offer widespread access to clean, efficient services. “Malaysia’s ambitious goal is to simultaneously reduce poverty and achieve a green economy,” stated Prime Minister Najib Razak.

Malaysia, currently dependent on exports and manufacturing, seeks to transition to “low carbon emissions, highly efficient use of resources, and a healthy, well-educated populace.”  Foreign investment is being sought to achieve this lofty goal, and Najib is set on attracting it.  The meeting in New York brought together Nobel laureates, UN representatives, Malaysia heads of state, and important businesspeople to discuss Malaysia’s green economic transformation.
