Digital Malaysia  

The growth within the digital economy was understandably accelerated and expedited with the Covid-19 pandemic giving birth to waves of new digital businesses, forcing traditional brick-and-mortar enterprises to pivot online. Similarly, the shift also saw millions of Malaysians go virtual for their eCommerce, entertainment and even education needs. The delivery of quality education is also now mostly dependent on a student’s home broadband connectivity, or access to laptop or computers.  

With these transformations sweeping across the country, it is essential to ensure that the Malaysian people, especially our workforce, is prepared to take on large scale changes with our rapid digitalization. 

“Innovation and knowledge are driving economic growth and competitiveness of a nation in the era of the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR). The 4IR, is a technological revolution characterised by the fusion of digital technologies, innovation and knowledge across socioeconomic activities. As a result, the 4IR catalyses the growth of digital economy in Malaysia.”
