About
This forum seeks to examine the performance of ETP and its custodian, PEMANDU. With the ambitious goal of lifting Malaysia out of the middle-income trap and turning the country into a developed and high-income nation by 2020, the Federal Government through the Performance Management and Delivery Unit (PEMANDU) had in September 2010 launched the Economic Transformation Programme (ETP). Focusing on 12 NKEAs that lay out the key sectors, ETP’s ultimate aim is to double our gross national income (GNI) per capita to USD15,000 by 2020 and creating 3.3million jobs from an estimated RM1.4 trillion worth of investments. Entering its 2nd year, how has the ETP fared? With our panel of experts that are made up from both the advocates and the critics, we hope to provide a platform for both sides to present their opinions on its progress – has it been transformative or was it business-as-usual?
