More or less correct, but it's not exactly clear whether they're counting,
for example, the 1/3 of Malaysians who can read Chinese in both their
Chinese and Bahasa Malaysia statistics (which they should, and it looks
like they may). And even so, it's not clear what they consider to be a
"native speaker" in terms of proficiency level.
