2020. All national plans and programmes seem to be gearing towards Vision 2020. The year Malaysia is supposed to transform into a high-income nation, a fully developed nation.  At the forefront facilitating these national programmes is the Performance Management & Delivery Unit (PEMANDU) established on 16 September 2009 as a unit under the Prime Minister’s Department led by Senator Dato Seri Idris Jala.

PEMANDU’s main role is to oversee the implementation, assess the progress, facilitate as well as support the delivery of the Government Transformation Programme (GTP) and the Economic Transformation Programme (ETP).

That’s right you’ve heard those mighty acronyms before; GTP, ETP, NKEA, NKRA, EPP, SRI…and many more. But how much do we know about these programmes? Why should we care? Have the ETP and GTP really made a difference to the ordinary Malaysian? Are reforms happening? And what are some of the challenges and opportunities ahead of us as a nation?

#UndiMsia!Chats with Senator Dato Seri Idris Jala, Minister in Prime Minister’s Department and CEO of PEMANDU  to unpack the complexities of these national programmes and give us an opportunity to field our questions and observations from the ground.

Building a D-I-Y community includes engaging our policymakers, and this is a perfect opportunity to do so!
