KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia attained a good performance for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in 2020 with 49 indicators (34 per cent) recording positive achievements, the Department of Statistics Malaysia (DoSM) said.

"The availability of indicators shows an increase of 59 per cent (146 indicators) in 2020 compared with 52 per cent (128 indicators) in the previous year.

"The remaining 63 indicators (26 per cent) still need to be developed, 25 indicators (10 per cent) are not available, and 13 indicators (5 per cent) are not relevant to Malaysia,” chief statistician Datuk Seri Dr Mohd Uzir Mahidin said in a statement today.
