Hi Martins, is there a specific source to use? The answers to your questions are not available from general online sources...


Here is what I have so far?


Malaysia is part of the New Zealand Environmental Law and Regulations which have the following principle guidelines. Each country has agreed to the commitment to implement the policies to respect participating parties own sovereign standards. The governing practices must be in accordance with international environment policy. The laws in place are not for establishing monopoly or special protections. But they are to inform trade partners as well as domestic business and the general public of the established practices for environmental regulations.

Malaysia has a population of over 20 million people. It is one of the top exporters of rubber, timber, natural gas, and petroleum in the world. In addition it is a leader of exports in air conditioners, and electronic semiconductors. Located to the south of Asia, it has experienced tremendous growth and economic success in the early to mid 1990s (. At that time the Growth Domestic Product was as much as 8% annually. However in the late 1990s Asia's financial industry experienced a hit due to a loss in GDP of a huge 7.5% that affected Malaysia.

The working age for Malaysians begins at around 15 years of age and nearly half of the population is considered a part of the workforce. The age of retirement is around 64 years. The majority of workers are in the mid 30s and younger.

Wages and salary for Malaysians are the result of the Employment Act passed in 1955. The Act called for wages to be paid within seven days after a pay period. The ethical considerations of wage and salary requirements are greatly improved over the past ten years. The number of persons employed in the industry has decreased over the years to around 18% by 1999. Manufacturing employment has grown on the other hand to around 22.5% of the workforce by 1999. The labor has shifted to manufacturing from agrilculture, forestry, and the fishing industry. Other areas of increase are the business, real estate and financial industries. Singapore also employs Malaysian workers who commute (New Strait Times, 1997). Workers are allowed to migrate to an area where they desire to earn the wages they want.

Singapore is an island surrounded by over 55 smaller islands. The number of people is around three million.

The main industries in Singapore are primarily the commercial and service areas. Supplying outsource services to

other countries around the world. Crude oil, petroleum and natural gas are the main exports of the country.

The Environmental Impact Assessment currently focuses on the following areas. Environmental Protection, which is focused

on managing resources to facilitate asbestos removal, construction workers, waste, Emissions, and handling hazardous contaminants.

Under Fuel Efficiency there are the low carbon iniatives, solar technology, bio energy, and wind power development.

The SEI also coordinates training in all areas of environmental awareness and development for government, industrial workers, and academic advancement. Thereby supplying the latest information for better decision making.

Wages for engineering is $3,600 gross each month. Wages for the average office worker is about $1,570 monthly. Wages for a car mechanic

would be $1,350 monthly and for a Physician $7,600 each month.

The questions do not appear relavant to each other. First talking about environment then wages and salary? Please give more background.
