Abstract:Malaysia is a country of great diversity. The diversity does not only apply to its natural heritage, but also to the multiracial, multi-religious and multicultural population of 26 million. Caring is still part of Malaysian life and although there is no standard CSR model, each organisation has in its own way put CSR into practice.
Strategically located at the crossroads between the East and the West, Malaysia attracted early travellers from different parts of the world. Also, Hindu–Buddhist influences came from India and China. Traders from the Middle East and India sailed to this land, introducing Islam to the local population. The country's independence was proclaimed on 31 August 1957. Kuala Lumpur is the country's capital city. The petroleum industry makes the largest contribution to GDP and the manufacturing sector has transformed Malaysia from an agriculture-based country into an industrial economy.
