Government will Continue to Empower The Malay Language

Putrajaya, Malaysia - The government will continue to empower the Malay Language in tandem with its position as a national language and an important tool for national unity, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said.

At the same time, he advised Malaysians to master various languages towards becoming a competitive race in this era of globalisation and the increasingly stiff international competition.

"This government's commitment is proven with the implementation of the policy on Upholding the Malay Language, Strengthening the Command of English which was introduced last year.

"It clearly shows that the government adheres to the policy of empowering the Malay Language in the country's education system. The government is also determined to continue to develop and empower it globally," he said at the Prime Minister's Trophy International Malay Language Elocution Contest at the Putrajaya International Convention Centre Friday.

The text of his speech was read by Higher Education Minister Datuk Seri Mohamed Khaled Nordin.

In efforts to empower Malay Language, Najib also wanted the potential of the language to continue to be nurtured and further strengthened in all fields.

"For a start, RM5 million has been channeled through the Malaysian Institute of Translation and Books or ITBM to ensure high quality knowledge material can be published within a short period of time," he added.

He said that from April 2011, a total of 97 book titles by local young writers were published.

The prime minister said greatness of the Malay Language was also reflected with about 300 million people speaking the language, making it the fifth widely spoken language in the world.

He praised the Higher Education Ministry for its success in organising the world-class competition for the seventh time and with more participants.
