MALAYSIA'S STORY: AN INSIDER'S VIEW

In 2014, Bloomberg placed Dato' Sri Idris Jala, former CEO of Malaysia Airlines, among the top 10 most influential policy makers in the world. He is presently CEO of PEMANDU, the organisation tasked with spearheading Malaysia’s transition towards high income status by 2020. Jala has served on the Advisory Panels for the World Economic Forum (WEF) and the World Bank.


DATO SRI IDRIS JALA

Dato' Sri Idris Jala, who is from the Kelabit ancestry and a Christian (one of the few non-Malay non-Muslims to have been appointed to head a GLC), is the current Minister without Portfolio in the Prime Minister's Department and acting Chief Executive Officer of the Performance Management and Delivery Unit (PEMANDU).

In 2005, the Malaysian government elected Idris Jala as the CEO of Malaysia Airlines, which was suffering from massive losses. In February 2006, he announced the airline's business turnaround plan. Under Idris, profits improved from a 9-month loss of USD400 million in 2005, to a record profit of USD260 million in 2007.
