As the local aerospace industry progresses, MIGHT continues to work closely
with the Ministries, industry players and other key stakeholders in spearheading
industry development. At present the focus is on content development on
Transport and Mobility for the New Industrial Masterplan. This includes stakeholders
engagement sessions to gather all the necessary inputs including the issues and
challenges faced by the industry and updates on the Government and industry’s
initiatives towards making Malaysia a preferred hub for aerospace in the region.
More programmes are planned for 2020 involving a broader group of stakeholders
through the MIGHT Interest Group (MIG) platform and TechnoMart, among others.
Shipbuilding and Ship Repair (SBSR) is one of MIGHT’s forte and is becoming more
prominent with the development of the Shipbuilding and Ship Repair Strategic Plan
2020. In realising the recommendations, MIGHT continuously works with all relevant
parties to ensure its smooth implementation. As a member of the National Shipping
and Port Advisory Council 5: Ancillary and Support Services, MIGHT actively promotes
the SBSR industry and highlights its issues and challenges to improve efficiency, safety,
competitiveness and environmental benefits. Partnering with industry players through
the Association of Marine Industries of Malaysia (AMIM), the Maritime Strategic
Association of Malaysia (MASTRA) and others, MIGHT is committed to taking the
local SBSR industry higher.
