For Penang2030 to be meaningful to everyone, it is important that it has an impact on their lives, that positive change is visible to them, and that they feel that they themselves can participate and make a difference.
Phase 2 of Penang2030 — Accelerating Penang2030 — is three-pronged. Firstly, “Placemaking Initiatives” in the state are being identified as focal points for positive efforts to develop Penang as a family-focused clean and green home for its inhabitants. Secondly, “Community-building Initiatives” aimed at engaging and empowering the population as a whole are underway, bringing agencies and elected representatives together for broad and deep impact on society. Finally, the “Industry Engagement Initiatives” signify a tripartite effort between government, civil society and the private sector to build further on Penang’s manufacturing ecosystem, broaden our investor base and prepare for the digital future. Together, these contribute to the remaining two foundational projects in the Penang2030 Guide concerning green connectors and SME advancement.
