The importance of Manpower planning in the industry or sector is considered as one of the ways to create sustainable growth and development. This study aims to present a comprehensive review of the projecting Manpower requirements in chosen service's sectors in Malaysia and suggesting the direction in the development of a human resource that indicates different categories of employment for the year 2020. The Manpower Requirement Approach (MRA) is used in selected service's sub-sectors for 2020, utilizing the Malaysian Input-Output tables for the year 2005 and 2010, composed of skilled, medium-skilled and low-skilled labour categories. The results show the higher need for Manpower in the skilled labour, in line with the ideology in targeting active labour-intensive participation of localized Manpower and liberalize the service's sector in Malaysia. This study fully benefits labour economics and encourages the participation of local Manpower in the services' sector in Malaysia.
