JOHOR BARU: A 13-member economic panel will be formed to propel the state's economy to the next level and also to cater to the changing global economic climate.

Johor Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Mohamed Khaled Nordin said the panel would comprise economic experts from Malaysia and abroad.

"This special committee on economics of the future will help the state's ambition to be an economic powerhouse," he told reporters after launching the annual Exco Awayday 2017 Tuesday.

In his speech, Mohamed Khaled outlined the state's focus this year including the implementation of 436 touch points, which have been outlined since 2014.

"This touch points have been made key performance indicators (KPI) for state executive committee members, heads of departments and government-linked companies," he added.

Other objectives of the panel include ensuring the success of the Johor strategic growth plan and district development plan, and finding ways to be ready for the digital economy of the future.

The one-day Exco Awayday is being held for the third year and is mainly to disseminate information about the state's progress and public initiatives.

The event will also detail the performances of all the state's exco members.

The exco members have their own KPI, which is being monitored at quarterly intervals.

At the event, all nine exco members will present their portfolios and achievements until December last year.
