Abu Bakar of Johor


Who is Abu Bakar of Johor?

Abu Bakar of Johor: Sultan Sir Abu Bakar ibni Daing Ibrahim, also known as Albert Baker, was the 21st Sultan of Johor. He was also informally known as "The Father of Modern Johor", as many historians accredited Johor's development in the 19th century to Abu Bakar's leadership. He initiated policies and provided aids to ethnic Chinese entrepreneurs to stimulate the development of the state's agricultural economy which was founded by Chinese migrants from Southern China in the 1840s. He also took charge of the development of Johor's infrastructure, administrative system, military and civil service, all of which were modelled closely along Western lines.
