PETRONAS is a fully-integrated oil and gas multinational corporation fully owned by the

Malaysian Government. Generally PETRONAS complies with the Malaysian government¶s or

whichever local government¶s (where it has its operations) rules and regulations in terms of

social welfare including employee benefits or environment concerns. Êowever, in countries such

as Myanmar, the human rights law itself is very low standard, so complying with them may not

be an issue at all PETRONAS but certainly not sufficient from sustainable point of view.

Recommendations for PETRONAS to be a ³Sustaining Corporation´ and it should look beyond

just compliance to the government rules and regulation.

PETRONAS management should actively pursue social equity and human welfare issues

while continue to be in operations in countries where the local government is condemned for

human rights violations such as Myanmar. From the issues, PETRONAS should use its influence

to pressure the local governments to improve their human rights records. PETRONAS also must

report out any improvements it has managed to bring out directly and indirectly. The benefits

PETRONAS are its corporate image will be tremendously improved and not be condemned by

human rights groups while being able to continue operations in those countries.

Êowever, PETRONAS must also be prepared not to continue its business if it doesn¶t

succeed in improving human rights situation. This issue may be difficult considering

PETRONAS is fully owned by the Malaysian government and the Malaysian government¶s

position on Myanmar is to work with the present government in Myanmar to reduce its human

rights violations and not to isolate it.
