Changing the economic development brought about Malaysia industrialization and during the course of economy development, Malaysia set its goal attaining a member of advanced countries in 2020, what is called in Malay, “Wawasan” means vision.
The Malaysian legal system has been largely influenced by English Common Law. Malaysia adopted federal system and the Constitution of Malaysia sets out the legal framework and rights of Malaysian citizens as the supreme law of the land. Also Islamic law plays a relatively role in defining the laws which only applies to Muslims on some areas of the country.
