KOTA KINABALU: The Sabah state government is working hand-in-hand with the Federal government to improve information and communications technology (ICT) facilities in the state to meet current demands, said Sabah Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Aman.

He said it has become a fact that today’s generation is a digital native one (born in the digital era) and thus various programmes had been implemented by the government to support the rise of entrepreneurs in the technology sectors.

He said this in his opening speech for the state's #YOUCANDUIT campaign here. The text was read out by Sabah Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Raymond Tan Shu Kiah.

Also present were Communications and Multimedia Minister Datuk Seri Dr Salleh Said Keruak and Malaysian Digital Economic Corporation chairman Tan Sri Sidek Hassan.

Musa said that he believed that the campaign via its eUsahawan and eRezeki programmes could open up a wider path for low-income families to generate income via the digital world and significantly contribute to raising the people’s socio-economic level.

Agreeing with him, Sidek urged the public to make use of the opportunities offered within the digital economic realm. - Bernama
