Malaysia has launched a new initiative called Malaysia Digital, which government officials say will succeed MSC Malaysia, replacing a 25-year-old effort to transform Malaysia into a knowledge-based economy.
The 6th annual Kre8tif! Conference & Content Festival kicks off with big aspirations for local players.
High investment growth from MSC Malaysia companies points to healthy tech sector
For Veriva Systems founder and CEO Wendy Leong, it was a case of good timing, an eye for spotting a market gap, sheer guts, and perhaps even luck.
Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC) has appointed Sidek Hassan as its new chairman effective May 1.
Buoyed by the performance of MSC Malaysia in 2015, MDEC is confident that Malaysia will continue to be an attractive investment destination for foreign and domestic companies.
Malaysia's national ICT custodian MDeC recognises that the two main challenges the country faces in its regional BDA hub ambition are talent development and the availability of open data sets.
After awarding the first East Malaysian company with MSC status, MDeC now aims to turn Sabah into the fourth SSO hub in Malaysia.
MDeC is going back to one of the initial goals of the MSC vision, but its success will depend on the hunger of entrepreneurs.
MDeC will be focusing its efforts this year on helping local MSC companies go global, having already put a few initiatives in motion.
