Malaysia’s National Geospatial Master Plan (NGMP) announced at GeoSmart Asia 2017


Malaysia’s much awaited National Geospatial Master Plan (NGMP) has finally been announced at GeoSmart Asia 2017 at the Putrajaya International Convention Centre (PICC). Let’s find out the salient features of this strategic step undertaken by the Malaysian Government! 

Driven by private consumption and investments on the demand side, and the thrust of the services, construction and manufacturing sectors, the Malaysian economy has been able to sustain growth at 5.8% in the second quarter of 2017. Much of the strong economic momentum can be attributed to the several steps taken by the government to diversify the economy through rapidly developing infrastructure projects, increasing private investments, and integration of new technologies (specifically geospatial and digital technologies) while developing an innovative and entrepreneurial society.
