Abstract

The Five-Year Malaysia Plans have become the main catalyst in the development of the society and the eradication of rural poverty. This article analyzes the expenditure for the five-year Malaysia plans on the agricultural sector and identifying its contribution towards the rate of poverty.The expenditure allocations on the agricultural sector were relatively large because it encompassed capital expenses such as the provision of agricultural infrastructure, the provision of subsidies, the development of agricultural agencies, and the development of agricultural technologies.The study found that expenditures on four major program clusters, that is, the new land development program, development and modernization of agricultural sector, agricultural extension services, and enhancement of agricultural sector have become the priority in increasing the living standards of the rural society.Although the new land development program assisted the rural society to acquire land and sources of income, whereby the public expenditures were the highest, nevertheless, the modernization of the agricultural sector was the major contributor towards the enhancement of the living standards of the rural folks.The implementation of this program has shown a significant impact in reducing the level of poverty.
