Transforming Malaysia's unwilling government

A billboard advertises 1MDB in Kuala Lumpur.

Financial scandals, public protests against corruption and authoritarianism, economic anxiety and a depreciating currency are factors that would threaten the position of any elected national leader. Not in Malaysia. Faced with the above, Najib Razak has maintained his grip on the prime ministership.

     But with his credibility damaged, public trust shattered, and his signature 1Malaysia concept buried, his policy record increasingly hinges on fulfilling transformation. The Global Transformation Forum, running in Kuala Lumpur Oct. 21-23, will showcase Malaysia's new policymaking and monitoring model, and perhaps cast a warm glow on the administration.
