Jordy Cao, general manager of Malaysia, Alibaba Cloud Intelligence, said: “Alibaba Cloud is proud to be chosen as a trusted partner of SDEC. We believe cloud computing technology can act as a catalyst for inclusive innovation and we look forward to working with SDEC to transform the state and support local SMEs to better serve the people of Sarawak.”

“It is pivotal for us to select the right cloud service partner. Alibaba Cloud is a trusted international provider - the company’s robust cloud infrastructure and comprehensive suite of public cloud solutions will definitely help SMEs on their digital journey,” said Sudarnoto.
This collaboration comes at an opportune time as Malaysia works towards the national Digital Economy Blueprint to make Malaysia a high-value-added economy and a net exporter of home-grown technologies and digital solutions by the end of this decade, SDEC said.
