TN50 "My Aspiration, My Future" Contest.
In 2017, Malaysians celebrate 60 years as an independent nation. From our humble and uncertain beginnings, we have grown and evolved significantly into a modern economy and society. Beginning with the era of the New Economic Policy (1971-1990), we stepped into the 2020 era (1991-2020). Now, we have to be ready to face the next 30 years.
The world in 2050 will be much different from the world today – what will guide us to face this future?
‘Transformasi Nasional 2050’ or TN50 is an initiative to plan for the future of Malaysia in the period 2020 to 2050. From the vision of becoming a developed nation, we should strive to be amongst the top countries in the world in economic development, citizen well-being and innovation.
This objective needs to be fleshed out and given meaning by Malaysian citizens themselves. Come on Malaysia, let’s share our views and ideas, let’s jointly set our objectives for the nation’s future. Let’s put our hearts and minds together.
