After 25 years, MSC Malaysia is being polished up, upgraded, and relabeled as Malaysia Digital.
The Programme was recently soft-launched during the Malaysia Digital Economy Week at Expo 2020 Dubai.
The announcement of Malaysia Digital in Expo 2020 Dubai comes as timely and relevant, as the improved processes and incentives will be crucial to accelerate Malaysia’s economic recovery as we exit the COVID-19 pandemic.
In line with the Twelfth Malaysia Plan (12MP), the revamped and enhanced Malaysia Digital will be key towards achieving the goals set forth by the Malaysia Digital Economy Blueprint (MyDIGITAL), which targets RM70 billion in investments by 2025.Multimedia, Tan Sri AnnuarMusa
Malaysia Digital promises to offer a fresh new Bill of Guarantees, and expand beyond designated locations into a nationwide initiative with non-location-based incentives.
It also aims to feature improved and accelerated governance and processes as well.
Under the Malaysia Digital initiative, the Government and the Malaysian Digital Economy Corporation MDEC will also be introducing two initial catalytic projects: DE Rantau and Malaysia Digital Trade.
DE Rantau is a programme to make Malaysia the preferred Digital Nomad Hub. In other words, boost digital adoption to promote digital professional mobility and tourism.
Malaysia Digital Trade, on the other hand, is designed to take advantage of the tech opportunities that have been accelerated by the recent Covid-19 pandemic.
These new projects are powered by MDEC’s mission to drive the digital economy through catalytic, high-impact initiatives, as well as strategic and sustainable investments and inclusive policies.
Malaysia Digital will be the fuel to skyrocket the digital economy to new heights, as well as to nurture a progressive, equitable, and innovation-led digital economy in line with the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (UN-SDG).MDEC Chief Executive Officer, Mahadhir Aziz.
The Malaysia Digital Economy Week happens from 9 to 15 Jan during the 182 day Expo 2020 Dubai event that spans from 1 Oct 2021 to 31 Mar 2022.
Among the attendees is the delegation of 20 companies brought by MDEC.
