Sweeping sustainability practices 

The focus on green growth will bridge sustainability and the economy. This includes enhancing energy sustainability and transforming the water sector to prioritise water security. It will concurrently address climate change, unsustainable consumption and production practices, loss of biodiversity, lack of coherence in the implementation of policies and inefficient water resources management, as the country moves towards a low-carbon nation. 

Job opportunities 

• Graduate Marketability Strategic Plan 2021-2025 and Job Creation Strategic Plan 2021-2023 to be introduced to address mismatch in the labour market, labour issues in certain industries. To construct a competitive economy, we need jobs that can satiate the demands of future challenges. Electrical and electronics, global services, aerospace, creative, tourism, halal, smart farming and biomass industries have been identified as the new catalysts of economic growth. Efforts will be channelled towards accelerating these industries to enable the production of high value-added activities and products, to attract quality investments and expand exports, and to contribute to the green economy agenda.
