Description
Episode Description
"In Malaysia, the year 2002 seems right around the corner. The Malaysian government and its people have pledged to be completely 'developed' in less than thirty years. Few question whether it's a goal worth attaining, nor do they question Malaysia's ability to attain it. For the past twenty years, Malaysia has had steady annual economic growth of 5% or better, and poverty is down from 50% to 17%. Malaysia is truly one of Asia's economic success stories, an up-and-coming Minidragon. "Yet, what price does Malaysia pay for its meteoric rise and why the rush to succeed' "'Malaysia: A 2020 Vision' tells the stories of five people living through the country's transformation. These include: "Paul Low, a Chinese businessman, who, haunted by memories of race riots 30 years ago, struggles today to build partnerships between the new Malay and the long-established Chinese business communities. "Rohani, a devout Muslim woman, who also happens to be a labor leader fighting for the rights of women workers at one end of the largest computer chip factories in Malaysia, owned and operated by a U.S. [multi-national] corporation. "Through the lives of its people, the story of modern Malaysia unfolds, revealing a country full of optimism for its future, yet unsure where their 2020 vision is taking them."--1993 Peabody Awards entry form.
