But, since there are a few of them who kept talking about this.."Melaka Maju", so it would be better for them to know..who or which authority declared Malacca as a delevop state.
So I quoted some important parts from the news...
"OECD iktiraf Melaka negeri maju" ~ Utusan
"OECD declared Malacca as a develop state" ~Utusan
Ok, so they claimed that OECD was the one who declared Malacca as a develop state.
*OECD, Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development
SO, what say OECD?
"Malacca develop status self-declared, says OECD official" ~ The Malaysian Insider
In fact, OECD has no authority at all to declare which state as a develop state. Why? Because they don't even have any single guideline to do such thing. However, I advise you, don't jump into conclusion yet. Because it is actually depends on the state itself to have such perception or declaration.
Yes, Malacca still have a lot of things that need to improve. I admit that but for me, Malacca deserved to be declared as a develop state.
OECD is an organisation which grouping the world's 33 richest countries with the higest GDP. What is GDP? GDP gives the definiton of gross domestic product which refers to market value of all final goods and services prduced by a country. Malacca GDP had already reached US$14, 261 as compared as the lowest GDP amongs the 33 richest coutries with the highest GDP was Turkey at US$13, 000.
p.s 1: in 2009 only, Selangor, Johor, Sarawak and Penang together with KUALA LUMPUR contributed 62.7 % to national GDP
Conclusion: Develop state does not represents a higher GDP in which those states mentioned actually have a higher GDP as compared to Malacca's GDP. Example, China's GDP is 10 times higher than Singapore's GDP and 2020 China expected to be the largest economy in the world.
Get it? No authority may have any jurisdiction to declare any state as a develop state
Example 2: compare both of it..
Malacca will build Disneyland-style theme park only with 21 hectares, estimated cost of RM300 million only.
While undeveloped state like Johor itself is having a participation for two mega project as such as Legoland with 51 hectares, estimated cost of RM750 million and Pinewoods Studios, the largest stage provider in Europe. In facts this studios are expected to generate an economic profit of 1 billion. Plus, Pinewoods Studios is best known for its movies like HARRY POTTER, James Bond, Lara Croft, Batman, Superman and etc.
