Bumiputera definition

Bumiputera literally means “prince of the earth” or “sons of the soil.” In Malaysia, this term is especially applied to the members of those “indigenousethnic groups of Malaysia who receive preferential treatment under the New Economic Policy (NEP) first announced in 1970 and launched in 1971 by the government. NEP sought to promote national unity through two-pronged strategy: (1) to raise income levels for all Malaysians; (2) to accelerate the process of restructuring Malaysian society to correct economic imbalance, so as to reduce and eventually eliminate the identification of race with economic function and geographical location.

More Definitions of Bumiputera

Bumiputera means ‘princes or sons of the soil’.46 Basically, it refers to the indigenous groups in Sabah and Sarawak who are not regarded as Malays,47 but who like them are granted special rights. The Malays are also classified as ‘bumiputera’. Among the indigenous groups in Sabah are Kadazan/Dusuns, Bajaus, Indonesians and Muruts, while the indigenous communities in Sarawak are Ibans, Christian Bidayuhs and the Melanaus.48 However, the Constitution of Malaysia in article 153 does not use the term ‘bumiputera’ to describe these groups. It refers to “...the Malays and natives of any of the States of Sabah and Sarawak...”49 The ‘bumiputera’ have been given special rights and privileges, as stated in the Constitution of Malaysia, article 153. This includes holding positions in public service, obtaining “...scholarships, exhibitions and other similar educational or training privileges or special facilities given or accorded by the Federal Government...”50 and obtaining a permit or license to operate a trade or business that is required by the federal law.51 These special rights or privileges are under the safeguard of the King of Malaysia, known in the Malay language as ‘Yang di-Pertuan Agong’.52

Types of DCS include but are not limited to DCS 1/0s, DCS 3/1s, and DCS 3/3s, where the nomenclature 1/0 denotes interfaces typically at the DS1 rate or greater with Cross Connection typically at the DS0 rate. This same nomenclature, at the appropriate rate substitution, extends to the other types of DCS specifically cited as 3/1 and 3/3. Types of DCS that cross connect Synchronous Transport Signal level 1 (STS-1 s) or other Synchronous Optical Network (SONET) signals (e.g., STS-3) are also DCS, although not denoted by this same type of nomenclature.
