The Economic Transformation Programme (ETP) is the culmination of a substantial body of work to transform Malaysia into a high-income economy by 2020, building on the 10th Malaysia Plan, the New Economic Model and the principles of 1Malaysia, People First, Performance Now.
PEMANDU organised a workshop in May where over 1,000 key representatives from the public and private sectors identified economic areas that Malaysia should focus on, to increase our Gross National Income (GNI) per capita from RM 23,700 (US$ 6,700) to RM48,000 (US$15,000). These National Key Economic Areas (NKEAs) are drivers of economic activities that have the potential to directly and materially contribute a quantifiable amount of economic growth to the economy. Following the workshop, a series of 12 NKEA laboratories (labs) were held involving over 500 participants from the private and public sectors. The labs were held through June and July, and mapped out concrete strategies, plans and initiatives to transform the nation into a high-income economy that is sustainable and inclusive.
Open days will be in held Kuala Lumpur, Kuching and Kota Kinabalu, to showcase the results of the NKEA labs and to obtain feedback from the rakyat. Details for the Kuala Lumpur Open Day are as follows:
