The Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC) will kick-off the month-long Malaysia Tech Month 2020 (MTM 2020), a purpose-built initiative that showcases the nation’s robust and versatile digital and technology ecosystem and success of its innovative companies.
Commencing today, the exciting curation of world-class speakers and programmes aims to attract start-ups, entrepreneurs, corporate organisations, government stakeholders, small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) and both local and foreign tech sector leadership.
The Chief Executive Officer of MDEC, Surina Shukri said, they believes these digital initiatives must be for the benefit of the many, and by doing so, Malaysian can firmly establish our nation as the ‘Heart of Digital ASEAN’.
“MTM 2020 will demonstrate our strategic interventions as the ‘winning-formula’ that will set the course forward for Malaysia, leading the country closer to becoming an exemplary, digitally-powered nation that will thrive in the 4IR and deliver shared prosperity for all.
“The digital transformation of a nation could be previously described as a journey, requiring specific initiatives to reach key demographics and meet those unique needs.
“The global pandemic has upended that notion, requiring an immediate shift in mindsets, agile pivots and precision interventions. Expectations are high for the digital economy to contribute significantly to the nation’s GSP into 2021 and beyond.
“MDEC, via important programmes like MTM 2020, will continue to reinvent our digital economy and lead it towards our vision of Malaysia 5.0,” she said in a statement.
