Malaysia: Sub-Contracting Woes

Cakap Tak Serupa Bikin ridicules Malaysian government's plans to strictly enforce its affirmative action policies in infrastructure projects. Malaysia awards a lot of its official contracts to Bumiputra (ethnic Malay) contractors.

Now the government wants the contractors to sign an official declaration not subcontract the project to others.
