Showcase of winning local innovations

The main winners at the Malaysia Commercialisation Year (MCY) 2018 awards, with Energy, Science, Technology, Environment and Climate Change Minister Yeo Bee Yin (middle, back row). The awards were in appreciation of local talents who contribute to the country's economic growth, and to encourage interest in the commercialisation of national R&D products by giving recognition and incentives to the best products and technology.

WITH innovative creations that range from skin whitening cream made from parts of the mangosteen tree, increasing the income of people in the B40 category during monsoon seasons to a quicker way to seek halal approval, Malaysia Commercialisation Year (MCY) 2018 pays tribute to 10 forward-thinking institutions for their efforts in five different categories.

MCY was introduced in 2016 to focus on commercialisation initiatives of local R&D products.
