Cover story: the way forward for MARA. [Website] (2021)


Majlis Amanah Rakyat (Mara) began life in 1953 as the Rural Industrial Development Authority (RIDA) to oversee the development of rural areas in the then Malaya.

In 1966, RIDA had its name changed to Mara, became a statutory body and had its role expanded to oversee the development of the bumiputera community.

The first question that comes to the mind of a Mara observer is whether it should be in business, or whether it should just assist bumiputera entrepreneurs with loans and grants and trade promotions.

To be clear, the Mara Act does provide for the agency to be involved in business and to own commercial entities, including investments in commercial properties and other forms of investments and commercial activities.
