Pangkor’s history has a strategic place in the starting point of our country. The treaty that was signed between the British and Sultan of Perak. The treaty is significant in the Malay states history because it signalled the British official involvement in the Malay states’ policies. A treaty which was signed on Pangkor Island in 1874 ignited the fight for independence that eventually came in 1957.
