Abstract

Malaysia as a developing country has created an educated Malay middle class with certain skills and expertise. This class experiences expansion from time to time and plays an important role in advancing the state. They not only play a role in mobilizing the national economy, but also bring socio-political changes. The emergence of this group is much influenced by the industrialization process in Malaysia. In addition, the emergence of this group is influenced by the establishment of government agencies which have played and continue to play their own roles. Thus, this article is presented to study the role of government agencies in the creation of a Malay middle class in Malaysia. However, this research focuses on only three government agencies: Majlis Amanah Rakyat (MARA) Perbadanan Nasional Berhad (PNS) and Permodalan Nasional Berhad (PNB). Research outcome shows that these three agencies play an important role in giving birth to a Malay middle class in Malaysia. They provide advisory services, financial assistance as well as employment opportunities in the companies they own.
