ETP Economic Transformation Programme

12 National Key Economic Areas

Focussed Approach to Economic Growth

Malaysia will leverage its competitive advantages by prioritizing investment and policy support behind a limited number of key growth engines. Hence, the Economic Transformation Programme focusses on 12 National Key Economic Areas (NKEAs) as announced in the Tenth Malaysia Plan. These NKEAs will receive prioritised government support including funding, top talent and Prime Ministerial attention.

The Government is committed to the ongoing support of growth in the non-NKEA sectors. However, the Government will focus its efforts on the NKEAs because of the significance of the GNI contribution that these parts of the economy can drive.
