The 11th Malaysia Plan lays out the government’s latest five-year development strategy, covering the period 2016-20. It is also the final five-year plan leading up to Wawasan 2020, the year by which the government’s vision to make Malaysia a high-income, knowledge-based economy is meant to be realised. For this pivotal period, the plan lays out initiatives for the transport sector including construction of a seamless transport system and facilitating enhanced mobility of people. The latter involves ensuring that 40% of transport in the Greater Kuala Lumpur-Klang Valley region is composed of public options. In the other state capitals the target is 20%.
