KUALA LUMPUR (Oct 25): The five-year strategic plan of the National Trade Blueprint launched on Monday (Oct 25) will elevate Malaysia’s trade competitiveness and strengthen its position in the international arena, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said.

He said the blueprint with its eight strategic thrusts and 40 recommendations would address necessary structural changes for the export sector to thrive through the strengthening of trade facilitation, logistics, standards conformance, market access, sustainability, digitalisation and technology, investment and branding.

The premier said these recommendations would be implemented by eight working groups comprising specialists from the public and private sectors.

“The blueprint reflects the government’s clear ambitions to further develop Malaysia’s position and competitiveness in international trade.
