Vision 2020 is a long-term development roadmap that will conclude by the end of the Eleventh Malaysia Plan (11MP) period. As a continuation, the Twelfth Malaysia Plan (12MP) will be formulated to ensure a more inclusive and meaningful development of the nation, in line with the formation of a prosperous society.
In developing a comprehensive policy, the Economic Planning Unit will establish Inter-Agency Planning Groups (IAPGs) as a platform for ministries and agencies to discuss issues and challenges as well as formulate new strategies for the 12MP. Concurrently, Technical Working Groups (TWGs) and Focus Groups (FGs) will be formed to deliberate strategies and implementation plans for the 12MP, which involves the participation of various parties including the private sector and non-governmental organisations.
Among the main tasks of IAPGs are to:
evaluate the performance of policies, strategies and programmes implemented under the 11MP
develop new policies, strategies and programmes to achieve the 12MP targets and outcomes
evaluate proposals submitted by TWGs, including proposed strategic papers
finalise objectives, policies, strategies and programmes to avoid duplication and discrepancies
recommend new policies, strategies and programmes to be presented to the National Development Planning Committee chaired by the Chief Secretary to the Government.
In the preparation of the 12MP, a total of 13 IAPGs have been established and the proposed dates for each IAPG meetings are as follows:
