EUMCCI / MDBC: Accelerating Malaysia’s Human Capital Index

February 13, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 2:30 pm

Dear MDBC members,

Human Capital (the knowledge, skills, and health that people accumulate over their lives), has been the main reason for continuous sustainable economic growth and poverty reduction in many countries.  The Human Capital Index (HCI), developed by the World Bank, measures the amount of human capital that a child born today can expect to attain by age 18.  It conveys the productivity of the next generation of workers, assuming complete education and full health in its benchmark.  This Index is constructed for 157 countries and in 2018, Malaysia ranked 55.

According to the HCI, a child born in Malaysia today will be 62% more productive when he or she grows older.  In line with the nation’s aspiration to become a high – income nation, developmental progress is measured beyond GDP and includes Human Capital Development; there is still room for improvement in the areas of education, nutrition, and overall social welfare.

This event aims to discuss how Malaysia can continue to improve its human capital and boost productivity.  Some of the key issues that will be discussed include the importance of universal access to high – quality education to better develop cognitive and social skills.  Another important issue that will be addressed is the stunting problem that is on the rise, as it affects one in five Malaysian children.

We invite you to join us in examining the Human Capital issues in Malaysia and how we, as a society, can accelerate Human Capital Development in the country for the betterment of our shared future, a future that realizes the Shared Prosperity Vision.
