This document outlines strategies and action plans to achieve greater levels of plastic circularity in Malaysia. The Roadmap is based on science and has been developed in an inclusive manner. The Government conducted a study to understand the concept and mechanisms of a circular economy, and the current ecosystem including policy, regulations, technology, research & development and financing opportunities for plastic from production to end-of-life treatment in Malaysia. Existing options and future opportunities to improve plastic circularity were tested for the viability in the Malaysian economic and regulatory context. This was done by engaging with representatives from public and private stakeholders, civil societies, academicians, as well as financial institutions. What is clear, is that success will only be achieved through a whole nation approach.
