KUALA LUMPUR: Telekom Malaysia Bhd (TM) will support MyDigital - Digital Economy Blueprint as well as other government’s digital and stimulus plans towards accelerating the socio-economic recovery at this most critical time.

Managing director and group chief executive officer Imri Mokhtar said such public and private collaboration will propel the country towards a full-fledged Digital Malaysia by 2030, a more digital society, digital business and digital government.

"We would like to congratulate the government on the comprehensive MyDigital - Digital Economy Blueprint.

"It is a holistic approach encompassing digital connectivity (fibre and 5G), digital infrastructure (cloud and cybersecurity) as well as digital skillsets and talents, towards making life and business easier for Malaysians as a connected nation,” he said in a statement today.

Earlier, Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin launched MyDigital - Digital Economy Blueprint which is aimed at accelerating the country’s transformation into a technologically-advanced economy by 2030.

Imri said the company thank the government for being the only home-based cloud operator awarded the Cloud Service Provider (CSP) to serve our public sector together with the appointed Managed Service Provider (MSP), as announced by Muhyiddin today.

He said today TM has established itself as a leading end-to-end cloud and data centre service provider that provides data residency, locality and sovereignty in Malaysia - serving both public sector and enterprise customers.

Meanwhile Imri said TM continues to strengthen Malaysia’s global connectivity and partnership ecosystem with international telcos, content partners and hyperscalers.

"TM’s ever growing global network of more than 20 submarine cable systems spanning 190,000 kilometres is ready to support the global connectivity demand of MyDigital.

"TM enables end-users to access and enjoy a seamless connectivity experience in support of a more digital lifestyle and workstyle, through our strong relationships with global telecom and content partners, including hyperscalers,” he added. - Bernama
