In a groundbreaking announcement on Sept 1, the government unveiled the New Industrial Master Plan (NIMP) 2030 – a strategic industrial policy targeting the manufacturing and manufacturing-related services sector.
Positioned against the backdrop of the burgeoning influence of IR4.0 technology, the imperatives of climate change and sustainability, demographic transitions and the global interconnectivity of value chains, NIMP 2030 stands poised to foster a collaborative relationship between the government and the private sector. Its ambitious mission: To transform Malaysia’s industrial landscape over the next seven years.
After the success of this year’s Circular Economy Conference (CEC), Star Media Group and UOB Malaysia are joining forces once again to present a post-CEC seminar titled “Resilience of the Supply Chain within the New Industrial Master Plan (NIMP) 2030”.
The seminar will be held on Nov 27 from 2pm to 4pm at UOB Plaza 1, Kuala Lumpur, and promises a deep dive into the ripple effects and implications of NIMP 2030 on Malaysia’s supply chain.
This seminar is aimed at SMEs and entrepreneurs looking to green their value chains or grow their trade through ESG financing.
