KUALA LUMPUR (April 9): The 12th Malaysia Plan (12MP) is in the final stage of preparation, said Minister in Prime Minister’s Department (Economy) Datuk Seri Mustapa Mohamed.
Four days ago, he said the government had received requests for an allocation totalling RM900 billion under the 12MP from the federal and state governments and agencies.
Previously, he said although the 12MP had not been revealed to the public, the government was rolling out several policies, such as the Malaysia Digital Economy Blueprint (MyDIGITAL).
"The Covid-19 has brought about a lot of challenges that in many ways have hastened the process of reform as we work on the 12MP, which is in the final stage now," he said at the "A Transformative Leap: MyDIGITAL Insights & Fireside Chat" organised by RHB Investment Bank.
Mustapa said MyDIGITAL will pave the way for the country to ensure that the people are digital-ready.
The blueprint outlines the country’s way forward in becoming a regional leader in the digital economy.
