SYNOPSIS

The construction industry continues to be a substantial driver of growth to Malaysia’s economy and this trend will continue and expand in the future. The industry’s economic contribution is about 4.5% of GDP, but interrelates to over 120 sub-industries and consumes about 15% of total manufacturing output; contributing a two-times multiplier effect for growth and sustainability. Almost 10% of Malaysia’s total workforce is employed here. As such, the importance of the construction industry cannot be overemphasised. Notwithstanding the various initiatives and programmes designed and implemented over the years, recurrent problems still persist to undermine the reputation of the industry. These include poor quality, frequent delays, cost overruns, low productivity and disproportionately high rate of workplace accidents. In this light, there is the need to be cognisant of the current challenges and the contributing factors. This webinar will discuss the critical issues involved and how we can ameliorate the overall performance and competitiveness.
