12th Malaysia Plan takes National Recovery Plan into account, says Tok Pa

JELI (Bernama): The report on the 12th Malaysia Plan (12MP) will take into account all factors related to the ongoing and post-Covid-19 situation, including the National Recovery Plan (NRP), says Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department (Economy) Datuk Seri Mustapa Mohamed (pic).

He said the 12MP is almost completed at 97 per cent and will be presented to the Cabinet soon.

“The 12MP definitely takes into account the current Covid-19 situation, the post-pandemic new norm and the NRP; all of these will be in the 12MP, InshaAllah (God willing),” he said to reporters after surveying the Vaccination Outreach Programme at the Jeli Member of Parliament’s office here on Saturday (June 19).

Mustapa said this after being asked about the comments by the Research for Social Advancement (Refsa) research coordinator, Fakhrurrazi Rashid on Thursday (June 17), who opined that the NRP should be part of the 12MP.

On claims by certain quarters that the NRP is ‘half-baked’ or does not bring major changes to restore the country after Covid-19, Mustapa said every strategy implemented by the government had been carefully deliberated on.

Therefore, he appealed to all parties and the people to be patient and to give the government some time to ensure that the NRP achieves its targets, underpinned by the three main indicators.

“The current situation puts great pressure on the country’s position, especially from the financial aspect; we are facing an unprecedented and the worst economic health crisis we have ever had,” he said.

On Tuesday (June 15), Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin announced the NRP, a phased exit strategy from the Covid-19 crisis and the movement control order.

The transition from each phase to the next would be based on three target indicators: the average daily new infections, the capacity of the healthcare system/intensive care unit bed utilisation, and the percentage of the fully vaccinated population.- Bernama
