The Government Transformation Program in Malaysia
The Government Transformation Programme (GTP) is an effort by Malaysia's current Government to address seven key areas concerning the people of the country. The programme was unveiled on 28 January 2010 by the Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak. and is expected to contribute in making the country a developed and high-income nation as per its Vision 2020.
The Programme was created to support the Prime Minister Dato' Sri Mohd Najib Bin Tun Haji Abdul Razak's motto of People First, Performance Now and will be implemented until 2012 as a foundation for the transformation of Malaysia.
6 initial National Key Results Areas (NKRAs) which were derived from surveys with the nation's citizens and following months of evaluating the people’s demands of the Government and the most pressing issues were selected to develop the NKRAs.In July 2011, a 7th NKRA was announced to address another pressing issue of inflation and rising daily cost of the people. A focused list of projects and initiatives for each NKRA was developed to ensure that big fast results for specific targets are achieved.
The NKRAs are the responsibility of relevant Ministries and the Performance Delivery and Management Unit (PEMANDU) was initiated to monitor the achievements of each Ministry. The NKRAs and its detailed targets were made public with the publishing of the GTP Roadmap.
Following the first year in implementation, majority of the NKRAs achieved more than 90% of their targets and the results were also made available via the GTP Annual Report 2010.
