The theme for Malaysia Forum 2013 is ‘Berpandangan Jauh’, which means in Bahasa Malaysia ‘to take a long term view’. Berpandangan Jauh is a phrase adapted from the lyrics of Akbar Nawab’s song Wawasan 2020.
With a watershed election behind us and another election just around the corner, the Malaysia Forum team believes it is a timely juncture to ask questions surrounding the long-term development of our country. We have constructed our panels across four MF audiences to approach pertinent Malaysian topics with a long-term view, and what exactly it means to do that. Among the topics discussed are stability and development, media maturity, social activism, education, language politics and general elections.
Information on our panels, speakers and schedules can be found here. To register for MF, please go here. To make the $15 registration payment for MF MIT, please go here (There is no registration fee for MF KL, MF SG and MF LA).

What is Malaysia Forum?
Malaysia Forum is a network of Malaysian students and professionals based in the Northeast United States. It is an offshoot of the Stanford Malaysia Forum, started in the San Francisco Bay Area in 2002 with the aim of promoting discussion about Malaysian affairs through media and public dialogue. MF continues with the same goal, engaging Malaysians and interested parties in discussion about and participation in Malaysian development in every scope and field. MF, like its predecessor, the Stanford Malaysia Forum, is a non-partisan and non-profit entity. Please see our main page for MF’s philosophy.
