Government to relaunch Shared Prosperity Vision 2030


KOTA BARU: The government will relaunch the Shared Prosperity Vision 2030 (SPV2030) this year, says Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department (Special Function), Datuk Seri Mohd Redzuan Yusof.

He said the relaunch was crucial in view of the significant income inequality between districts and states, which required the government to work hard to bridge the disparity.

If necessary, improvements would have to be made to existing policies in order to achieve the vision, he said.

“We need to pay serious attention to this matter, as the number of poor households has increased based on the poverty line income (PGK).

“We need to address weaknesses and get the people to understand the government’s move towards the country’s economic development,” he said.

Mohd Redzuan said this at a press conference after an engagement session with the Shared Prosperity Delivery Unit (Sepadu), the Bumiputra Agenda Steering Unit (Teraju), the Bumiputra Education Pioneers’ Foundation (Yayasan Peneraju Pendidikan Bumiputra), government agencies, non-governmental organisations, and Kelantan State Cooperatives here yesterday.

SPV2030 is a commitment to make Malaysia a nation that achieved sustainable growth along with fair and equitable distribution across income groups, ethnicities, regions and supply chains to provide a decent standard of living for all citizens by 2030.

Mohd Redzuan added that the session was held to disseminate information on SPV2030, among others, so that all levels of society were aware of the road map for the country’s development.

Meanwhile, he said the government was constantly monitoring the unpredictable weather conditions in Kelantan, especially in Gua Musang, which had been frequently hit by flash floods of late.

Earlier, five contract farmers were presented RM3,000 each to reduce the impact of Covid-19 in the B40 group. — Bernama
