According to NST, Dr. Mahathir confirmed that the IMF was impressed with Malaysia’s reforms and is keen to learn what the government is doing to improve the situation in Malaysia. IMF is particularly interested to learn the Malaysia government’s approach to tackling corruption.

“IMF needs our help, because the country has gone from a government that was corrupt to one that is introducing reforms.” an unnamed official told The Star.

Malaysia made worldwide headlines when the then-opposition party Pakatan Harapan (PH) made history by winning the elections – ending Barisan Nasional’s (BN) 60-year grip on power.
