A leader makes an impact in people's lives says Dato' Sri Mustapa Mohamed, the former head of Malaysia's Ministry for International Trade and Industry. 

"People are looking for impact," Dato' Sri Mustapa said. 

As a politician, Dato' Sri Mustapa said he tries his best to improve Malaysians' standard of living, expand opportunities in education and healthcare.

"Jobs are very important now and it's not just any kid of job. They're looking for quality jobs," he added.

"These are the kind of things that will ensure a better quality of life for our young people."

(Writer's note: We spoke with Dato' Sri Mustapa when he visited Manila on March 12, 2018. This is our chat with him before the historic political change in Malaysia which saw Mahathir Mohamed reelected as Prime Minister in a shock election victory. Dato' Sri Mustapa Mohamed, vacated his post as Minister for International Trade and Industry days after Mahathir's election.)
