Former Bank Negara Malaysia deputy governor Arshad Ayub said that Malaysia is still a “success story” despite its various failures or scandals.
Though the Bumiputera Malaysia Finance (BMF), forex and 1MDB scandals are still on people’s minds, he said we must acknowledge that those who have led the country over the years have done well.

Keep Malaysiakini independent!
Malaysiakini will be 18 this year. That we’ve survived this long is because of you.
Your support matters. A lot. Especially those who pay RM150 annually, RM288 biennially or RM388 triennially to keep Malaysiakini independent from government/opposition influence and corporate interests. Advertising alone will not keep Malaysiakini afloat.
Together, we’ve gone far. We’ve covered three prime ministers, four general elections, five Bersih rallies, and countless scandals. But the journey continues.
Help us deliver news and views that matter to Malaysians. Help us make a difference for Malaysia.
