BMCC Sector Report 2018/2019: HealthcareViewed as a priority to the Malaysian economy, the government has prioritised health- care spend- ing, injecting RM23bn (US$5.2bn) into healthcare in 2016 – approximately 10% of the annual budget. Ac- cording to the Ministry of Health (MoH), healthcare was the fastest-growing industry between 2000 and 2009 and thus recognised as a key driver of eco- nomic growth. In 2010, the Economic Transforma- tion Programme (ETP) was established to transform Malaysia into a high-income economy by 2020. Un- der this initiative, healthcare was identi ed as one of 12 National Key Economic Areas (NKEA) to receive substantial government support and initiatives.
