Inspired by the Ministry of International Trade and Industry (MITI) and its continuous efforts in promoting the Malaysian economy to foreign investors, MALAYSIA PROGRESS was given the thumbs up and started its maiden issue more than three decades ago.
As an authoritative ANNUAL, MALAYSIA PROGRESS is obviously an appropriate platform to create business opportunities, smart partnership linkages and ultimately develop the full economy potential of Malaysia. With a highly strategic circulation that reaches only decision and policy makers, MALAYSIA PROGRESS is instrumental in creating economic spin-offs and enhancing existing entities in the process of nation building.
In the beginning, MALAYSIA PROGRESS was exclusively targeted at selected State Focus initially but was soon extended to include National Agenda such as Privatisation, Malaysian Incorporated Projects, Look East Policy, "FRENCH INVESTORS IN MALAYSIA", "MALAYSIA & GERMANY, PARTNERS IN PROGRESS" and Landmark Editions, i.e. Part 1 & 11 of SOUTH AFRICA & MALAYSIA, PARTNERS IN PROGRESS and Three-in-One Special Supplement on PUTRAJAYA, CYBERJAYA & THE MULTIMEDIA DEVELOPMENT CORPORATION (graced by the MDC Executive Chairman's Message).
MALAYSIA PROGRESS has today become the longest established ECONOMIC ANNUAL. Its credentials has also been strongly reinforced by endorsements from leading Ministers including The Minister of International Trade & Industry, and other Cabinet Ministers.
The Journal's significant contribution towards nation building process has not only been seen as noble but strategic and meaningful as invited advertisers will normally obtain maximum mileage, in view of its concept of One Company per Industry Concept (OCIC).
MALAYSIA PROGRESS is expected to introduce "The New Kids On The Block in the New Era" with the mix of the old economy and the new economy. This will give impetus and rejuvenate the linkages between the old and the new economy, thus resulting in better positioning of the economy.
