Government-linked companies: Ensuring reforms in times of government change


Government-linked companies are significant components in Malaysia’s political economy. Successive governments have recognised the importance of addressing the economic and political governance of these companies with a series of reform efforts.

As Malaysia’s politics has become more fluid in the past three years, how do we ensure the continuity of important government-linked company reforms with the change of governments? What are these important reforms? And given issues related to these firms arise as a result of direct political interference, would politicians who are on the board of these companies ensure the achievement of these reforms?
