Promoting The Use Of Bahasa Malaysia

The Dewan Bahasa and Pustaka plans to make Bahasa Malaysia our official language for business and economy, ultimately to preserve and promote its usage. First, we look at how language intersects with business. Then, we discuss the idea of being a more multilingual Malaysia. Finally, we talk about how to empower and normalise the usage of Bahasa Malaysia.
