									 2ND ANNOUNCEMENT             Introduction
                              When the Right Honourable Dato' Seri
                              Mohd. Najib Tun Abdul Razak was sworn in
                              as the sixth Prime Minister on 3 April 2009,
 NATIONAL SEMINAR             his maiden speech introduced the concept of
                              "1 Malaysia: People First, Performance
  ON "1 MALAYSIA"             Now." "1 Malaysia" has since then become a
                              dynamic notion, and an important vision in
                              policy planning and nation building. The
                              principal goal of the "1 Malaysia" campaign
                              is to strengthen ethnic relations in the
         THEME:               country, and to foster greater unity between
1MALAYSIA, SHARED REALITY     the diverse ethnic and religious groups living
                              in Malaysia. Even though many are in favour
                              of the idea, critics abound: some are clearly
                              still confused and sceptical of the "1
                              Malaysia" notion. Thus, it is imperative and
                              timely to hold the National Seminar on ”1
           DATE               Malaysia” to promote greater awareness, as
     1-3 NOVEMBER 2010        well as a more intelectually coherent
                              understanding regarding the ”1 Malaysia”
                              concept.
