Despite Malaysia’s strong position in the manufacturing sector which contributes on average 22% to the GDP in the last 5 years, the state of the manufacturing industry has been a case for concern as Malaysia has moved away from being an investment destination for low cost labour manufacturing activities and is challenged by lower cost competitors from emerging economies and rapidly changing technologies. As such, it is imperative for Malaysia to transform itself, at an accelerated pace, and embrace Industry 4.0 as a critical policy intervention to ensure future manufacturing competitiveness. The National Industry 4.0 Policy Framework is a comprehensive transformation agenda for the manufacturing and services sector.
