Building a Better Malaysia

 

Preamble

 

Since the independence of Persekutuan Tanah Melayu in 1957 and the formation of Malaysia in 1963, the nation has evolved into a dynamic multi-ethnic nation with progress in many sectors.

 

We salute the sacrifice, tolerance and accommodation of all communities in the developmental phase that has brought about stability, progress and peace to our nation.

 

Moving forward, the nation should aspire for human progress based on the principles of peace, justice, fairness and freedom that will transcend ethnicity, colour or creed.
