As a civil society organisation, G25 will continue to support the government in its efforts to develop the country to become one of the most successful among developing nations, that will ultimately morph into a developed nation.
We aspire for our country to be free from the evils of corruption, injustice and disharmony.
Towards this end, we must endeavour to make practical moves, like ensuring the strengthening, independence and transparency of our key institutions of governance to help keep social malaise in check.
We fervently hope the country’s leaders will emphasise these efforts for democracy to work well and allow Malaysia to progress further in upholding human rights and individual freedoms. Increased confidence in our institutions of governance will bode well for the confidence in our economy.
We look forward to seeing how the government’s plans for 2024, particularly with regard to the economy and Masyarakat Madani (civil and compassionate society), will continue to develop for the betterment of the people at all levels of society.

As a part of this, we expect to see the government being more transparent and proactive when engaging with the public on matters of public interest, including but not limited to the eradication of poverty and the bridging of income inequality.
In 2024, we would also like to see greater emphasis on improving and strengthening our education system to respond to the disruptions caused by the pandemic and to address the myriad of global challenges facing the world.
We urge the government to engage different stakeholders before making any significant decisions which may affect our children’s education. Raising the quality of education, including inculcating critical thinking and English language proficiency in our national schools for our children to meet the needs of the future global and technological workspace, is an imperative for higher education, employability and the future of the nation.
In anticipation of the transformation that could come about in the years ahead, G25 looks forward to a more prosperous, united, and harmonious nation under the enlightened and benign rule of the 17th Yang Di-Pertuan Agong, based on the fundamental principles of constitutional monarchy as enshrined in our Federal Constitution.
We are hopeful that the changes the New Year will bring will further strengthen our country as a multi-racial, multi-religious and multicultural society.
We are confident in the shared resolution of the people of Malaysia who wish only to live in a happy and peaceful nation that proudly upholds the principles of tolerance and peaceful coexistence with all races feeling confident about the continued growth and prosperity of the country. – G25
