|Rancangan Pengumpulan Semula (RPS) is the main focus of this research. The main finding shows that the role played by JHEOA in developing Runchang aboriginies as a government agency was not fully achieved as outlined in the New Economic Policy (NEP). JHEOA planned to develop the three main aspects, which were health, education and economy of the Orang Asli. Between 1970 to 1990, the health programme was the most successful aspect compared to the other two aspects. This is because health programme can be achieved in a shorter period of time whereas the impact of education and economic programmes can only be achieved in a longer period of time. Moreover, the Orang Asli were still ignorant of development programmes that had been planned for them. Because of this, they could not follow the entire programme thoroughly. Basic knowledge concerning government development programmes were not exposed to them. This was the main reason for their failure. As the result, the products made by the Orang Asli could not be sold to outsiders. Furthermore, the Orang Asli were still influenced by their traditional lifestyle which contributed to the failure of the government imposed economic plans. Besides that, they could not give their full commitment to education. This was because the majority of the Orang Asli children could not join the formal education. Thus, they could not take advantage of the development programme given. In conclusion, the Orang Asli need social-economic development but because of all the problems mentioned, they could not enjoy the development planned for them.|
