World Bank Group
The World Bank Group’s current partnership with Malaysia is focused on knowledge-sharing. It is centered on support for Malaysia’s vision to join the ranks of high-income economies by 2020 through inclusive and sustainable growth, and to share its lessons with developing countries.
In March 2016, the World Bank Group officially launched its Global Knowledge and Research Hub in Malaysia. The new Hub is the first of its kind, serving both as a field presence in Malaysia and as a global knowledge and research hub. It focuses on sharing Malaysia’s people-centered development expertise and creating new innovative policy research on local, regional and global issues.
The three pillars of work:
Pillar 1: Sharing the Malaysia Experience with the World. The ‘Malaysia Experience’ is relevant for developing countries in Asia and across regions that are transitioning out of poverty.
Pillar 2: Learning Together for Global Solutions. The new Hub carries out cutting-edge development policy research in partnership with local and international research institutions.
Pillar 3: Supporting Malaysia’s Goal of Becoming a High-Income Economy. The World Bank Group’s international experience will provide Malaysia with a wide array of development solutions and expertise, customized to specific challenges.

Perdana Fellow Alumni Association
The Perdana Fellowship is a prestigious programme established by the Ministry of Youth and Sports in 2013 to provide young Malaysians a first-hand experience in matters of national governance.
Under this programme, Perdana Fellows are placed under the purview of Ministers of various Ministries to assist in the highest form of governance. 2017 marks the fifth year of this prestigious programme.
Upon completion of the fellowship, Fellows become a member of the Perdana Fellows Alumni Association (PFAA), which continues the culture of fostering a close network between youth leaders and government, corporate and NGO leaders.
PFAA is a multiracial, multicultural, non-political, and non-profit organization. Our mission is to develop the next generation of Malaysian leaders across various sectors.
Since our inception, PFAA has initiated a number of programmes that are inclusive, taking into account the diverse interests of our members, and involving other youths and youth groups in our civic engagement activities. Examples of such events include the Perdana Leadership Series, Youth Roundtable Series on TPPA and Work Life Balance, Youth Economic Forum 2016, Careers Unlocked, and Projek Wanita Malaysia.
