Malaysia as a developing country has been in the middle-income trap since 1990s. Although Malaysia has enjoyed strong growth in the past but its momentum has been significantly slower since the 1997 Asian economic crisis. For the country to become a high-income nation by 2020, Malaysia needs to have a critical mass of skilled and knowledge-based workers for higher productivity and economic growth.The projected national population for age-group cohort 15 years old and above are approximately 34.2 million by year 2020 and they constitute the working population of Malaysia. In strategising and targeting skilled and knowledge-based workforce for the new decade, lifelong learning (LLL) is an important agenda in the 10th Malaysia Plan (10MP) and recognised as the third pillar of human capital development.10MP has succinctly mentioned that for the country to develop and retain a first-world talent base, LLL will play an important role in upgrading the skills and capabilities of the existing workforce. This paper will delve into the various LLL initiatives by the Ministry of Higher Education in its strategic contributions towards achieving the nation’s high-income objective. (Abstract by authors)
