MPC targets 2.6pc growth in productivity
KUALA LUMPUR: The Malaysia Productivity Corporation (MPC) has set a minimum productivity growth target of 2.6 per cent for the manufacturing sector.
MPC director-general Datuk Mohd Razali Hussain said the sector played a major role in ensuring the nation’s productivity continued to improve.
“MPC will act as coordinator and supervisor and will update the National Productivity Council on the sector’s performance and steps to take to increase productivity,” he said after presenting Quality Environment certificates (QE/5S) to companies, including Auto Parts Manufacturers Co Sdn Bhd, KLPI Resources Sdn Bhd and Mara Japan Industrial Institute, in conjunction with Productivity Day yesterday.
On May 8, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak launched the Malaysia Productivity Blueprint, setting the target of achieving a national labour productivity growth of 3.7 per cent per annum up to 2020 to boost the nation’s economy. Bernama
