Abstract

Malay businessmen in printing industry, in terms of race, are given the advantage by the Malaysian government to conduct all government printing procurement inclusive of the publication management and prirnting agency, Dewan Bahasa dan Pustaka (DBP). In 2002, DBP, through its board of directors had agreed to hand over Dawama Sdn Bhd to a private company to be managed via privatization. Privatization means the transfer of investment service or government interest either existing or new ones which need to be handled by the private sector. Such concept is very different from the concept of nationalization which aims to add government’s ownership and authority in economic activity. The objective for this research is to study the documents from Persatuan Pengusaha Percetakan Melayu Malaysia (PPPMM) which represent all Malay printing businesses to the authorities and government’s top administrators in their plight to highlight the grievances of Malay printing operators. All documents which are studied are series of memorandumd and PPPMM’s published letters. These documents will be analysed using the content analysis method. Results of analysis will also be the research findings and will be presented in the form of discussion. Through this study, the researcher will be able to evaluate the effects suffered by the Malay printing operators due to DBP’s action. It is also hoped that this research will gain the government’s intervention in dealing with the issues which have longed been left unattended.
