Assalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh dan Salam Sejahtera,

The Prime Minister of Malaysia, YAB Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin has a clear vision in ensuring the people are protected and entitled to their rights in times of national and worldwide challenges. He wants to make sure everyone has food on their table and no one is left behind.

The Covid-19 pandemic health crisis is the biggest challenge that affected our economy and many people lost their jobs and source of income due that. This new challenge is one that requires special attention and detail.

The restructuring of the new government with the re-establishment of Economic Planning Unit (EPU) as a central agency under the Prime Minister's Department to replace the Ministry of Economic Affairs is a proof that the Prime Minister is paying special attention to ensure that the Malaysian economy sits on a sound foundation.

Economic Planning Unit (EPU) is now focusing on preparing the 12th Malaysia Plan which will be tabled in the Parliament this August. EPU is among the leaders in the Economic Action Council (EAC) in formulating a medium-term plan to strengthen the country's economy.

As such, this portal is one of the intermediaries to ensure that people can interact directly with me and EPU, JPM staff and have access to latest information on the country's economy. Visitors to this site are also welcome to express their views, opinions and feedback on EPU, JPM and related economic matters so that planning, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of policies and holistic programs can be realized towards achieving the goals of the socio-economic development of the country.

I hope that this official portal will be a helpful channel and source of reference for the target group and fulfills its purpose in approaching and strengthening the relationship between me and the EPU, JPM staff with the people.

Salam hormat,

Minister in Prime Minister’s Department (Economy)
