PELAN JANA SEMULA EKONOMI NEGARA
We are now living in unprecedented times of a global pandemic due to COVID-19. During this ongoing crisis, the Government recognizes the challenges faced by individuals, businesses and the economy at large. We have taken and will continue to take swift and proactive action to protect lives, support businesses and strengthen the nation’s economy.
The Government has steered the country through these challenging times by taking
an approach focused on 6 key steps: Resolve, Resilience, Restart, Recovery, Revitalize and Reform. We have now passed the first 3 stages: Resolve entailed addressing and containing COVID-19 by implementing the MCO; Resilience focused on protecting lives and livelihoods through the PRIHATIN Economic Stimulus packages while recently in May, the country stepped into the Restart phase which witnessed the reopening of economic sectors in an orderly and controlled manner.
On the verge of entering the 4th phase, Recovery, we remain focused on completing
the nation’s current journey from Restart to Recovery by rolling out a set of strategic
initiatives to propel forward the nation’s economic growth.
The Government now unveils PENJANA (Pelan Jana Semula Ekonomi Negara) or the National Economic Recovery Plan. This Government is committed to taking an inclusive and holistic approach to Malaysia’s economic recovery, and it is important to us that everyone is part of this journey. Towards this end, PENJANA will focus on 3 key thrusts Empower People, Propel Businesses and Stimulate the Economy.
This booklet outlines the details of PENJANA’s initiatives. God willing, may we find much blessing in this journey together towards a secure future for Malaysia.
