Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim recently met the Malaysian diaspora and overseas students and tried to persuade them to return.
He said his government will try to persuade skilled Malaysians to return and contribute to the development of the nation.

Sort out the racism and discrimination at home first, she says!
