Abstract

The modernization of Malaysia presents a challenge to communication systems designers in keeping up with current needs. The demand trend in mobile communication brought by economic growth and development has increased pressure on the communication sector. However, this has been supported and adapted to the government’s continued strategy with investment commitments and foreign aid such as Official Development Assistance (ODA). Communication development carried out through the commitment of Yen loans has resulted in access via land, sea, and air transports, creating a complex communication network. The network’s continued growth has been influenced by the implementation of new projects in line with Malaysia’s development needs. From 1966 to 2014, 45%, or USD944.35 million of Japan’s ODA to Malaysia was through loans. These loans were used to fund 75 different development projects and contributed to the shaping of a new landscape for Malaysia’s communication system. This ultimately created the synergy to strengthen Malaysia’s socio-economic global competitiveness. This research looks at the communication projects carried out under the Yen loan commitment from 1966 to 2014. This study argues, firstly, that accessibility to each corridor increased with the implementation of communication projects under the Yen’s commitments such as airports, harbors and highways. This allowed the Government to improve the quality of transportation as one of the major areas of national development emphasizing on the provision of services and travel mobility. Secondly, this efficient communication system contributes to the socioeconomic development of Malaysia, showing a correlation between current growth and increased mobility due to increase in population, employment, and economic activities.
