THE Orang Asli Development Policy is expected to be finalised in the fourth quarter of this year and be implemented in the middle of 2023, the Dewan Rakyat was told today.
Rural Development Minister Mahdzir Khalid said the policy, which will focus on matters related to land management, education, health, economy, leadership, infrastructure and culture, is aimed at boosting efforts in bringing the Orang Asli community into the mainstream of development.
“A core pillar of this policy is protection, well-being and development as well as service delivery.,
“The government through the Orang Asli Development Department (Jakoa) will intensify efforts to improve the socio-economic status of the Orang Asli community through existing programmes,” he said during the minister’s Question Time, adding that the policy will replace the Orang Asli Administration Policy 1961.
