High Performing Bumiputera Companies (TeraS) Programme was launched on 20 July 2011. TeraS objective is to identify high-potential Bumiputera companies and help these companies improve their business by providing business opportunities based on merit. Under this programme, 1,100 Bumiputera companies will be assisted to expand their business to regional level. Some large companies in TeraS will play the role as a holding company to support business growth of other Teras companies.
This programme targets high-potential Bumiputera companies to expand in the next five to ten years. The goal is so that these companies not only expand beyond the local market but also into the global market. The overall goal is to enable TeraS companies to contribute significantly to the GDP by 2020.
