    Abstract

    During the last forty years, the willingness and capacity of the Malaysian public service to accept and implement administrative changes and reforms should be appreciated. This was especially true in the eighties when there was political backing to administrative reforms and what appeared to be a permanent agenda on such reforms by top administrative leadership. In order to anticipate challenges brought by globalization and economic liberalization, the civil service has to be more efficient in the frontline, whereas frontier agencies must instill a global mindset, meaning they must observe the world from a broad perspective. One way to acquire this expertise is by providing better education and training programs to all Malaysian regardless of race and religion.
