Malaysia and Indonesia see themselves as being on the way of developing into knowledge societies. Indonesia's political leadership only vaguely circumscribes the characteristics of this new stage of development. Malaysia's political elite has, however, developed a vision when and how to reach the stage of a fully developed industrialised nation with a knowledge-based economy. This paper outlines the basic features of a knowledge society and analyses some of the social and cultural preconditions as well as consequences in reaching the stage of a knowledge society. It finally attempts to answer the question, how far Malaysia and Indonesia have advanced towards the stage of a knowledge society in comparison to other European and Asian countries.
