Engineer NCER Towards Industry 4.0

Strategically located in the Indonesia-Malaysia-Thailand Growth Triangle (IMT-GT) as well as along the maritime trade route of the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), NCER offers manufacturers with the ideal manufacturing base and a strategic gateway to tap on Southeast Asia’s 0.63 billion population. This is supported by readily-available robust infrastructures such as international airports, seaports, highway networks, power plants and natural gas pipeline.

The export-oriented manufacturing sector has tremendously contributed towards NCER’s economic growth, particularly by the electrical and electronics (E&E) industry, with the industry has been one of the main contributors of high-value investments since the 1970s. Apart from E&E, the region’s manufacturing sector is also comprised of automotive, rubber products and fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG), led by many multinational companies (MNCs). These MNCs are strongly supported local companies, which have also grown in lockstep with the MNCs.

The manufacturing sector has created millions of direct and indirect jobs to NCER’s population over the past few decades. The focus of NCER has now shifted towards creating high-skill and high-income job opportunities not only in the existing industries but also new, emerging ones such as aerospace and medical devices industries.
