: The Eleventh Malaysia Plan (RMK11), 2016-2020, will be country's the final leg in its journey towards realising Vision 2020.
Launched in 1991, Vision 2020 envisions Malaysia as a fully developed country along all dimensions – economically, politically, socially, spiritually, psychologically, and culturally – by the year 2020.
RMK11 which is to be presented tomorrow is expected to reaffirm the Government's commitment towards the country's growth which is anchored on the prosperity and wellbeing of its rakyat.
The plan is also premised on a progressive and united Bangsa Malaysia that shares a common commitment towards building a better Malaysia for all Malaysians.
The development of the Eleventh Plan was guided by the Malaysian National Development Strategy (MyNDS), which focuses on rapidly delivering high impact on both the capital and people economies at low cost to the government.
The capital economy is about Gross Domestic Product (GDP) growth, big businesses, large investment projects, and financial markets, while the people economy is concerned with what matters most to the people, which includes jobs, small businesses, the cost of living, family wellbeing and social inclusion.
Accordingly, the Eleventh Plan is a strategic plan that paves the way for Malaysia to deliver the future that the rakyat desires and deserves. It represents the Government’s commitment to fulfilling the aspirations of the people.
The Eleventh Plan, based on the theme “anchoring growth on people’, has six strategic thrusts and six game changers that will transform ideas into reality and address the goals set out in Vision 2020.
Malaysia will thus be catapulted towards the end state of being an advanced economy and inclusive nation. READ: Eleventh Malaysia Plan 'final lap' to achieving developed-nation status - Najib
