Given the rapid growth in the transport sector over the last 10-20 years as well as Malaysia’s position
as a transport hub for Southeast Asia region, there is a need for an overarching national transport policy.
The National Transport Policy (NTP) was developed through close collaboration between the government and private sector. Since September 2016, over 150 members from the government, academia and representatives of the private sector convened in a series of workshops, focus group discussions and meetings.
To develop a sustainable transport sector that accelerates economic growth and supports the well-being of the rakyat in line with an advanced nation status
As the nation continues to develop, it is critical to ensure that it has an overarching transport policy that can support our ambitions to be a high-income nation by 2025 based on its strong and sustainable growth.
