12MP focuses on social security and welfare, says Tok Pa
In view of the Covid-19 crisis, the 12th Malaysia Plan (12MP) would prioritize people’s welfare, social protection, and people-centred initiatives, stated Datuk Seri Mustapa Mohamed, Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department (Economy).
Its expenditure pattern has changed to concentrate on post-pandemic developments over the next five years, he added.
According to him, the 12MP will also highlight their commitments under the 1963 Malaysia Agreement, including the government’s commitment to the development of Sabah and Sarawak, which includes the building of roads, hospitals, schools, and digital (infrastructure).
Mustapa made the remarks at yesterday night’s RTM Bicara Naratif program, which focused on the subject ’12MP: Rebuilding the National Economy.’
