Works Minister Dato’ Sri Fadillah Yusof addressing the media
KUALA LUMPUR: The Construction Industry Transformation Programme (CITP) has achieved 96.5% of its current key performance indicators (KPIs) targets and outcomes, said Works Minister Dato’ Sri Fadillah Yusof today.
“Looking at CITP’s progress from January 2016 until June 2017, we have achieved the Green (Way To Go) score of 96.5% of KPIs achieved,” he said after chairing the CITP Ministerial Committee (CITP-MC) meeting at Work Ministry here today.
“The construction industry plays a catalytic role in the growth of the Malaysian economy, and the CITP is the blueprint for the industry to become a safer, more modern, productive and sustainable sector.
“We are pleased that the industry is on the right track to reach the KPIs and outcomes set for year 2020,” he added.
CITP 2016 – 2020 is a comprehensive plan to transform the construction industry into a modern, highly productive and sustainable sector. It is set to fully achieve its KPIs and outcomes through strategic collaboration with the industry’s key stakeholders, including the Ministry of Works, Public Works Department, Ministry of Urban Wellbeing, Housing and Local Government, the Construction Industry Development Board (CIDB) Malaysia and the private industry players.
The current progress number is calculated by averaging the current target weightages of all 117 KPIs until June 2017.
With the overall 2020 target set at 100%, the current target set for June 2017 is 29.93%, of which 28.87% has been achieved. This translates into 96.5% of KPIs set for June 2017 having been achieved.
Out of the 117 KPIs, 88 KPIs are Green (Way To Go), achieving 90% or more, and 10 KPIs are Yellow (Can Do Better), achieving between 60–90%. Presently, no KPIs are Red (Hurry Up) or below 60% of the current target.
Speaking to reporters after the meeting, Fadillah also revealed that Malaysian businesses won projects abroad worth RM2.7 billion, exceeding the target of RM2 billion.
"This simultaneously would mean a transfer of technology and skills to our local workers," he said.
Meanwhile, CIDB Malaysia Chief Executive Dato’ Ir. Ahmad ‘Asri Abdul Hamid said since the start of the implementation of the CITP in 2016, progress by each strategic thrust has been very promising so far.
“All four thrusts have also achieved progress in Green (Way To Go) until June 2017, recording scores of between 95% and 99%,” he said.
“In line with CITP’s tagline of ‘Driving Construction Excellence Together’, we recognise that effective collaboration among industry stakeholders in both the public and private sectors are crucial in implementing CITP programmes and achieving target outcomes set for 2020,” he added.
The ministerial committee meeting today was convened to review the progress of the CITP targets from January 2016 until June 2017 (Q2 2017). The committee is responsible for steering the overall success of the CITP, reporting to the top of the CITP governance structure chaired by the Prime Minister. The Minister of Works serves as the chair of CITP-MC.
