To support Malaysian SMEs and encourage employment, the government has initiated the National Economic Recovery Plan (PENJANA) to help reduce the unemployment rate in Malaysia as well as to assist companies that are recovering post-COVID-19 to restructure, reorganize, and regrow their companies. Through PENJANA, the Ministry of Agriculture and Food Industries (MAFI) has introduced the Workforce Mobility Program called My Future Agro. Bioeconomy Corporation, as one of the agencies under MAFI, has been selected to carry out this initiative through Biokerjaya @ My Future Agro Program.
