Malaysia Digital shows country's readiness to be at forefront of digital economy, says Annuar

KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia Digital initiative, to be launched by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob on Monday (July 4), is a clear signal to the world that Malaysia is ready to put the country at the forefront of the digital economy.

Communications and Multimedia Minister, Tan Sri Annuar Musa (pic), said that countries which took the opportunity to make adjustments, in terms of mechanisms and capabilities, to face the new digital economy ecosystem after the Covid-19 pandemic would be at the forefront of global races and competitions.

"It is fitting for the Malaysian Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC) to focus not only on appreciation (to digital economy industry players), but also to focus further, with a new emphasis starting from now for the next 25 years.

"It is apt for us to launch the programme tomorrow; an initiative that symbolises our country’s commitment to address and master this new ecosystem," he said when addressing the Malaysia Digital Industry Awards presentation ceremony, in conjunction with the MDEC Silver Jubilee celebration.

Malaysia Digital is an enhanced and revamped programme at the country's leading digital economy agency, MDEC, succeeding MSC Malaysia, which has been in operation for 25 years.
