IMP also of the opinion that the lack of skilled and experienced workforce is one of the critical factors that hinder technology transfer in generating new technologies. In this regard, the Government of Malaysia under the Sixth Malaysia Plan (1991 - 1995) established the Wood Industry Skills Development Centre (WISDEC).
