Malaysia aims high
Article Type: News From: International Journal of Productivity and Performance Management, Volume 60, Issue 7
Malaysia’s productivity grew by 5.8 per cent last year, according to the Productivity report 2010-11. This was a bigger rise than any of the OECD countries, but less than some of the other emerging Asian economies.
This rise was on the back of a 9.4 per cent rise in manufacturing productivity due to greater external demand and improved production processes.
Malaysia is looking for year-on-year rises above 4.6 per cent, to take it into the “high wage” league by 2020.
