PENANG: The Government has made significant attempts in handling the economic and social disparities among various bumiputra ethnic communities here, said Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM)’s vice-chancellor Prof Datuk Dzulkifli Abdul Razak.  

He said the government had succeeded in introducing affirmative action policies to uplift the socio-economic status of bumiputras here when compared with countries such as Cuba whose indigenous groups were totally left out from the mainstream administration. .
