Malaysian economy continues to thrive

Government reforms and support for growth industries of the future has propelled the country's fiscal position.

    As the economic recession continues to bite Europe, in Malaysia the economy is on track of achieving a five per cent growth for the year.

    Government reforms, a special task force identifying key industries for growth, such as education, health care and approved multi-billion dollar development projects across the country, are policies that have created a healthy economy.

    Al Jazeera's Florence Looi reports from the state of Penang on how it is thriving from the economic boom.
