Since its inception in 2007, NCER has evolved progressively and consistently, in concert with the government’s effort to promote inclusive and sustainable development in the region. Blueprint 2.0 aims to continue this upward trajectory by outlining future direction and strategies to advance growth and reduce regional imbalances.

    To sustain this growth momentum, the region must spearhead bold measures to pave the way for innovative and sustainable initiatives that contribute to the optimal well-being and prosperity of the rakyat.

    Blueprint 2.0 is thus anchored on the theme of ‘Growth with Social Equity’ to underpin NCER’s objective to achieve economic development, while promoting inclusiveness as the basis of its programmes towards maintaining an equitable distribution of wealth in the region. The strategies outlined here endeavour to re-engineer growth and productivity in priority sectors; strengthen infrastructure to support connectivity and growth; and address investors’ needs.

    By fostering talent development and improving liveability in the region, NCER will continue to ensure that the people benefit in every aspect of their lives.
