To develop human resources that are knowledgeable for long-term economic development and global competitiveness as well as create a society that is patriotic, resilient and moral.

The Kedah Maju 2010 Action Plan which covers the period from 2001 - 2010 has been outlined to help fully realize the vision of the Kedah Darul Aman State i.e. to achieve a developed state status by the year 2010. This Plan will determine thedevelopment direction of Kedah Darul Aman in the next decade. The Plan comprises strategies, programmes and projects that have been outlined to further accelerate the development of Kedah Darul Aman, as well as strategies to handle new challenges towards the achievement of developed status by the year 2010.

The Gross per capita Kedah Darul Aman State Output Performance which is still lower than the national average, requires high and rapid economic growth in order to match the level of development of other developed states. To ensure the achievement of this objective, the GDP growth of Kedah Darul Aman needs to exceed the national average rate. A well planned and effective development plan as well as total commitment from the state government, private sector and the populace of Kedah Darul Aman, will facilitate the launch of the development process and enable the achievement of the set target.

In the globalisation era and with the advent of the new economy, amongst new challenges that must be faced by the state currently and in future are digital economic development, globalisation and the challenge to develop a knowledge-based economy. The rapid development of the digital economy in the past decade largely contributed towards the economic performance of developed nations. This new economy that exploits sources of knowledge, information, new
technologies and innovations has changed the way in which businesses are conducted. New methodologies that are based on technology and information, are able to reduce production costs, enhance operations, increase efficiency and
worker productivity.

Based on the national goals, this Plan provides a platform for the Kedah Darul Aman State Government to face the challenges of globalisation and the new economy. It also provides a platform for the Kedah Darul Aman State Government to achieve higher economic growth with the ultimate aim of stablishing Kedah Darul Aman as a developed state by the year 2010. is
