In March 1995, Tan Sri Ismail Adam was appointed as the Director General of MPC, after about two and half years since he joined MPC. He was then tasked to rebrand MPC and take the agency to a new level of recognition and excellence. During the preceding two and a half years, the development of research activities was enhanced. Besides upgrading the traditional programmes and activities of MPC, productivity research was given priority, resulting in the enhancement of skill sets and output delivered to the Government, specifically MITI and the Economic Planning Unit (EPU), as inputs for policy formulation and planning. Tan Sri Ismail Adam’s new position also required him to develop strong networking skills, while engaging stakeholders and intended beneficiaries in both the public and private sectors. This was imperative for him to take MPC to new heights. Network connections would also help him enhance the capacity, capability and skill sets of the workforce, the human capital that, at the end of the day, would have to deliver the output. Internally, Tan Sri Ismail has strong support from the stakeholders, the Board of Directors and MITI, which facilitated MPC to move into new directions.
