Course Synopsis

Going back in history, the Malaysian economy was in the primary industries.  Chinese and Indian labourers were brought to Malaysia as cheap labour to work in the tin mines and rubber plantations respectively.  The Malays were predominantly involved in paddy farming and fisheries.

Over time, more and more younger people migrated from the rural areas to the cities in search of a better life.  Farming was not favoured as a career.  The Government also wanted to move the economy to an industrialised one.  This resulted in a reliance of foreign labour in the primary industries and increasing import of food products.
