30 Jul 2023
The Ministry of Investment, Trade and Industry (Miti) is finalising the New Industrial Master Plan (NIMP) 2030, which is expected to be launched by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim at the end of August.
Miti Minister Tengku Datuk Seri Zafrul Tengku Abdul Aziz said NIMP 2030 would be a comprehensive framework covering the mission, priority and action plan to transform Malaysia’s industrial sector.
“I can share that discussions (on the plan) until now are the most comprehensive that we have ever carried out because they involve new industries and other ministries.
“As the prime minister acknowledged in the Madani Economy, he has illustrated that the plan will not exclusively focus on basic sectors.
“It (NIMP 2030) will be a part of the industrial transformation that will hopefully help grow the economy in line with the established benchmarks,” he said in a press conference after officiating Miti Day 2023 here on Sunday (July 30).
Tengku Zafrul added that bilateral discussions with industry players are needed to complete NIMP 2030.
He said the industrial transformation is aimed at creating new wealth sources that will increase economic complexity, spur sustainable economic growth, create high-quality job opportunities and also improve living standards to be more prosperous.
Commenting on Miti Day 2023, themed “Perkasa Industri, Maju Ekonomi”, Tengku Zafrul said it featured a Miti Day career exploration programme which offered 2,500 job opportunities to job seekers and youths from 16 foreign and local companies from, among others, the electric vehicle, electrical and electronics, automotive, information technology, medical equipment and food and beverage sectors.
“Thirty local and foreign companies are participating in this Miti Day. We are also targeting 7,000 visitors from around Tasek Gelugor,” he added.
