EXPANSION OF THE PEMBANGUNAN SUMBER MANUSIA BERHAD ACT 2001

(EFFECTIVE FROM 1 MARCH 2021)

The expansion of the PSMB Act 2021 was mandated by the Government of Malaysia in its 11th Malaysia Plan (11MP) under Strategic Thrust 5 – Focus Area C: Strengthening Lifelong Learning for Skills Enhancements. This entails the expansion of access to HRD Corp’s funds, programmes and services to all industries.

The 11MP has identified high-quality human capital as the necessary element to propel the country’s future economic development. Therefore, it has set the target of ensuring that 35% of the Malaysian workforce will comprise skilled workers.

Employers of the new sectors are given an exemption of HRD levy until 31 December 2021 under Pembangunan Sumber Manusia Berhad Act 2001, provided the registration is made before 31 December 2021.
