NATIP is the culmination of an extensive research, work, thoughts and consultation programme which the Ministry of Plantation Industries and Commodities and the Malaysian Timber Industry Board (MTIB) have carried out over a span of three years to identify what needed to be done to ensure the continued viability of the wood-based industry in Malaysia up to the year 2020. All sectors of the timber industry and the relevant support services, including research organisations, institutes of higher learning and the financial sectors, were consulted in the formulation process.

The policy directions presented in NATIP are concerned with the long-term development of the timber industry. They are set out as a course of actions designed specifically for the industry to maintain and enhance its competitive edge in the global marketplace. At the end of NATIP implementation period in 2020, it is envisaged that the annual export of timber and timber products will reach RM53 billion, which is more than double the performance today.

NATIP contains 7 pillars that are instrumental for generating growth in the industry. They are:

Thrust 1: Industry structure

Thrust 2: Supply of raw materials

Thrust 3: Innovation and technology

Thrust 4: Marketing and promotion

Thrust 5: Human capital development

Thrust 6: Funding and incentives

Thrust 7: Bumiputera participation

NATIP will guide stakeholders and industry players on the trend of development which is most feasible for the industry to embark on. Activities developed for NATIP represent a constituent of the Government’s broad programme of building a resilient and competitive nation at a high level of sustainable growth. Following the launching ceremony on 17 February 2009, the implementation of those activities under specific action plans will be implemented by the relevant ministries, agencies and organisations. Regular monitoring of the progress made and evaluation of programmes and activities will be undertaken. The Ministry of Plantation Industries and Commodities, Malaysia is the governing Ministry while the Malaysian Timber Industry Board is the central implementing agency.
