Negeri Sembilan, Malaysia

2013 challenge

Negeri Sembilan is one of the smaller states in Malaysia and is located just south of Kuala Lumpur. While the state is known primarily for the proximity of its beaches to Kuala Lumpur, the state wants and needs to create its own distinct identity to meet the aggressive economic development targets. The Menteri Besar (Chief Minister), Dato' Seri Utama Haji Mohamad Haji Hasan, and his team requested IBM’s assistance in helping achieve Negeri Sembilan’s goal to become a “developed state” by 2020. The team’s work focused on assessing the current plan, balancing the GDP-centric goals with the needs of citizens, identifying gaps and hurdles, and providing recommendations to help the State become a place its citizens want to live, learn, work and raise families.
