The Ministry of Commerce and Industry (MITI) is formulating a National Policy or Framework on IR4.0. In collaboration with other relevant Ministries and Agencies such as Ministry of Higher Education (MOHE), MITI and its agencies are undertaking various outreach programs to increase the public, industry, academia and training institute's awareness on IR4.0. Targeted incentives and funding are provided to promote the adoption of IR4.0 under the Technical Working Groups (TWGs) for Incentives and Funding.
Existing training programmes are not sufficiently geared towards Industry 4.0 and the current pool of trainers cannot keep up with the advancement of technology.
