This report begins by examining Malaysia's record on poverty, particularly over the last three decades, before turning to an account of the country's anti-poverty policies, framed as they have been by the New Economic Policy and its successor, the New Development Policy. The authors proceed to examine the structures and processes of economic governance in Malaysia, highlighting the important role of the Economic Planning Unit. In the penultimate section, they present an analysis of the relation of economic governance to poverty reduction and conclude by briefly underlining the central points in our analysis and what some of their policy implications appear to be.
