Malaysia can only be considered developed if people can resist corruption — Tun M

PUTRAJAYA (Dec 12): Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad said today that Malaysia and Malaysians can only consider themselves developed when they can resist corruption and put a stop to it.

He said Malaysia needed to take corruption seriously if it wanted to join the ranks of developed countries and to be the tiger of Asia again.

"We did not get there by taking short cuts to success,” he said in his keynote address at the Sheikh Tamim Bib Hamad Al-Thani International Ace Award 2018 here today.
