||Excerpts from Malaysia's country statement at the 41st session of the United Nations Commission on population and development, 7-11 April 2008, New York.
||Malaysia is currently experiencing an increase in population mobility mainly caused by industrialization and urbanization. Between 1970 and 2006, the proportion of population living in big cities such as Kuala Lumpur, Penang and Johor Bharu had doubled due to rapid urbanization mainly contributed by internal migration. This trend in internal migration has resulted in population redistribution due to an influx of people to the urban areas.
