Umno wants to help the Malays change their mindset to compete in the ever-challenging world.

Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said the party would instil positive values such as trustworthiness, intelligence, efficiency and dedication in the Malays to help them, especially the younger generation, cultivate the right mindset.

“In other words, negative values reflecting laziness and half-hearted efforts must be eradicated from the Malay mind,” the deputy president said in his speech at the joint opening of the Umno Wanita, Youth and Puteri wings’ assemblies last night.

“Scholars have long said we must have the right thinking in order to achieve something. Therefore, the Malay mind must be sharpened and trained to think appropriately and to avoid conflict, embrace harmony and produce excellence,” he said.
