    • 4. The Malaysian New Economic Model: Goals and characteristics
    • 5. MALAYSIAN BUDGET 2010: INTENSIFYING RESEARCH, DEVELOPMENT AND COMMERCIALISATIONCurrently, expenditure on R&D activities (in Malaysia) is at 0.6% of GDP, well below the United States at 3%, South Korea 3.5% and Taiwan 2.4%. To shift towards a high-income economy, we need a strong foundation in research, development and commercialisation (R&D&C) activities. Therefore, to strengthen R&D&C activities, the Government will undertake the following measures: First: Rationalising all research funds and grants to be more effective to achieve set targets; Second: Establishing a National Innovation Centre supported by a network of innovation excellence centres under the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation and in collaboration with the Ministry of Higher Education; Third: Integrating R&D activities with patents, copyrights and trademarks registration to ensure R&D&C processes are implemented more effectively. The cooperation between patent and research agencies will expedite the commercialization of research findings; and Fourth: Providing small and medium enterprises with tax deduction on expenses incurred in the registration of patents and trademarks in the country.
    • 6. MALAYSIAN BUDGET 2010: LEVERAGING FULLY ON NICHE AREAS • Intensify efforts to fully leverage on the potential of sectors in which we have the advantage, including the services sector. To date, the contribution of the services sector to GDP is 58% and has the potential to be developed further. • Focus on niche areas with potential and move up the value chain as well as generate higher returns. • The areas include tourism, information technology and communication (ICT), finance and Islamic banking, halal and green technology industries.

    • 33. Conclusions IIUM has decided to focus on two main research niche areas, namely the Islamic Products and Knowledge as well as the Sustainable Development in the Muslim World. Various research clusters formed at IIUM are aligned in these new directions. The Research and Innovation Office has recently been restructured to include new offices that look after the niche areas as well as the international funding, IIUM press, and the innovation and commercialization. In addition, the Research Matching Grant Scheme (RMGS) is enhanced further to promote international research collaborations.
