On 3 Sep 2011, overseas students from Malaysia and members of the Malaysian community in Perth gathered in big numbers at the Pan Pacific Hotel to spend an evening of togetherness with the Prime Minister of Malaysia, YAB Dato Sri Mohd Najib Bin Tun Hj Abdul Razak and his wife YABHG Datin Seri Rosmah Mansur.  The occasion was to celebrate the Hari Raya Aidilfitri  which is a Mulim holiday marking the end of Ramadan, the Islamic holy month of fasting.
Most of the guests invited by the Malaysian Consulate General were young Malaysian students studying at the various universities and colleges in WA. According to Madam Hamidah Ashari,  the Malaysian Consul General in Perth, Malaysian students in WA outnumber those from any other country, except China.  This makes them an important link between Malaysia and Western Australia, from way back and into the future.
When Prime Minister Najib arrived at the ball room, the young faces lit up with excitement and nervousness.  For many, this was the first time they got to see and even dine with their Prime Minister in person!
The warm and affable Prime Minister soon put everyone at ease with his light hearted yet serious and enlightening address and dialogue with the audience.  In his address, Prime Minister Najib said Malaysia targets an average GDP growth of 6% per annum from now until 2020 by which time Malaysia aims to attain the status of a developed nation.  As a trained economist, he said he is a great believer in spending to achieve growth.  He recalled during the 1997 Asian Financial Crisis, Malaysia spent its way out of recession, contrary to the advice given by the IMF.
On nation building, Prime Minister Najib said he will do his utmost to continue his lifelong effort to unite all races in Malaysia to move forward as a nation based on his brainchild, the 1Malaysia vision, which emphasizes ethnic harmony, national unity, and efficient governance.
To the students, Prime Minister Najib encouraged them to go back to work in Malaysia after graduation, or after gaining post graduate working experience in Australia.  He said Malaysia needs all the talents it can get in order to achieve the 2020 national goal.  Towards this end, he said his government has set out to create the right environment, including raising pay rates to international levels over time, so as to induce Malaysian students abroad to go home to serve their country after completing their studies.
