The “Keluarga Malaysia” (Malaysian Family) concept outlines three characteristics and 20 values.

The characteristics are:

  • Inclusivity
  • Common ground
  • Contentment

The enrichment of values include:

  • Instilling a culture of integrity in the family
  • Making the culture of trust as a family culture
  • Making the principle of justice as the core of strengthening the family
  • Making consensus through consultation as a family practice
  • Inculcating a culture of knowledge in the community and family
  • Fostering a culture of prudent communication among families
  • Instilling noble values in every member of the family
  • Responsibility towards family
  • Cultivating kindness in fostering the spirit of family togetherness
  • Ensuring a harmonious atmosphere can be enjoyed by the family
  • Instilling a culture of service in the family to help members who need it
  • Safeguarding the honour and dignity of the family
  • Instilling a caring spirit to help family members
  • Fostering a culture of patience in maintaining family harmony
  • Instilling the spirit of peace and wellbeing in family members
  • Cultivating healthy physical and mental practices
  • Continuing family traditions and customs, love, respect and obedience

The concept envisions to revive the country and achieve a status of a developed and high-income nation.

It also outlines the strategic direction where Malaysians regardless of religion and race will work together to revive the country from the negative impacts of Covid-19.

The concept’s key focus areas include uniting all Malaysians under the auspices of the Malaysian Family, putting aside political differences to achieve stability, as well as bridging the economic gaps.

In the nutshell, the Malaysian Family accept similarities and differences based on the values and characteristics of the Malaysian Family based on the Federal Constitution and Rukun Negara.
