Symantec Welcomes Impact's New Facility In Cyberjaya
March 20, 2009 21:28 PM

KUALA LUMPUR, March 20 (Bernama) -- Symantec has welcomed the opening of the International Multilateral Partnership Against Cyber Threats (IMPACT)'s Global Headquarters in Cyberjaya, about 35 km from here, today.

"We look forward to continuing our involvement in this important multilateral collaboration to address the increasing levels of online security threats we're seeing throughout the world," said Symantec Corporation vice president, Asia South region, Eric Hoh, in a statement.

He said IMPACT was a very valuable platform for governments and industry players to exchange ideas, best practices, share skills and work together in combating cyber threats.

As today's cybercriminals are thriving on information they are gathering without permission from consumers and businesses, securing and managing information is becoming increasingly challenging, he said.

The collaborative initiatives of IMPACT will play an active role in increasing the capacity of its member countries in addressing the challenge, he added.

Symantec is a member of IMPACT's International Advisory Board and has been providing input on security threats to IMPACT's Global Response Centre, which is located in the new IMPACT Global Headquarters in Cyberjaya.

The centre encompasses an early warning system, which represents a critical foundation of IMPACT.

Hoh said as a global leader in providing security, storage and systems management solutions, Symantec engages with governments across the globe to strengthen the policy environment, secure the infrastructure, achieve greater international collaboration, as well as raise public awareness on cyber security issues.

The Symantec's Report on the Underground Economy is an example of resources that organisations and governments across the world can leverage for data on the evolving threat landscape, he said.

Key findings of the report include that the underground economy globally was valued at more than US$276 million between the period of July 1, 2007 and June 30, 2008.

The underground economy is geographically diverse and generates revenue for cybercriminals who range from loose collections of individuals to organised and sophisticated groups, he said.

Between July 1, 2007 and June 30, 2008, North America hosted the largest number of such servers accounting for 45 percent of the total while Europe/Middle East/Africa hosted 38 percent, and the Asia/Pacific 12 percent and Latin America five percent.

The geographical locations of underground economy servers are constantly changing to evade detection.

PM Confident Impact Will Gain From Cyberjaya
March 20, 2009 21:23 PM

CYBERJAYA, March 20 (Bernama) -- Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi said he was confident that the International Multilateral Partnership Against Cyber Threats (Impact), will be able to leverage on Cyberjaya's various advantages to its benefits.

Impact, the only multi-stakeholder cybersecurity organisation in the world, today launched its headquarters which has been set up here in Cyberjaya.

Abdullah said through Impact, the focus of the cyber security world will be on Cyberjaya and Malaysia, paving the way for the country to become a world leader in this domain.

"In the area of cyber-security, Malaysia is fast becoming an emerging force and most of the local top talents in this field are located in Cyberjaya," he told reporters at the launch of Impact's global headquarters.

Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak and the Secretary-General of the International Telecommunication Union Dr Hamadoun Toure were present to witness the event.

Impact's 58,000-sq foot headquarters here was erected with the aid of a RM43 million start-up grant from the Malaysian government.

It will be the hub for Impact's international activities and house a global response centre, training lab, security assurance, as well as a research centre for policy and international cooperation.

Abdullah, who is also chairman of Impact's International Advisory Board, said offences committed in cyber-space through network of interconnected computers will cause severe real life consequences.

"Today, a new generation of criminals can cause severe economic, political and social damage on a large scale.

"For instance, cyber disruption that causes a nationwide blackout or the collapse of financial trading systems can undermine even the strongest economies," he said.

Hence, Abdullah said Impact is the direct result of this need for a diverse range of stakeholders to come together to take the challenges.

Impact, the brainchild of the prime minister was officially launched in Kuala Lumpur in May last year.

To-date, it has 27 countries as members and supported by cyber-security companies such as F-Secure, Symantec, Kaspersky Labs, Sans Institute and Epok Inc.

Apart from that, Impact key partners include International Telecommunication Union (ITU), United Nations and INTERPOL.

After the event, Abdullah was briefed on Maxis Communications Bhd's iPhone 3G in conjunction with the launch of the phone.

He also become the first to own a Maxis iPhone 3G.

Cyberview draws up 5-year plan for Cyberjaya
By Sharen KaurPublished: 2009/03/30

CYBERVIEW Sdn Bhd is drawing up new plans for Cyberjaya - including products and development - that will cover a five-year period from 2011 to 2015, a top official said.

"We will have a round of discussion with the Economic Planning Unit to identify what are the niche areas that need to be prompted and expanded. One area where I see a lot of potential is creative multimedia," said Redza Rafiq, managing director of the government-linked entity spearheading developments at Cyberjaya.

He believes there will be an influx of investments to Cyberjaya as companies worldwide, especially Ame-rican information and communications technology (ICT) firms, relocate to keep costs low.

Cyberview has embarked on a campaign to promote Cyberjaya in North America, and several firms have indicated their intention to move to the ICT hub, Redza told Business Times in an interview recently.

"We are expanding. It is not a real estate game. We are using property as a tool to create economic opportunities in targeted sectors. We believe there are opportunities in every crisis," he said.

Redza said Cyberview is moving to develop more land and provide more buildings as demand has outstripped supply.

There are currently 500 companies operating in Cyberjaya, 465 of which are homegrown and the rest, multinationals. This is 65 per cent more than three years ago.

Redza said 26 companies have confirmed moving to Cyberjaya since July last year, including Malladi, a biotech firm from India; Rhythm & Hues Studios, which specialises in visual effects and computer animation for feature films; Experian plc, a global information services company; institutional investor services provider RBC Dexia; and a prominent US-based micro processor.

Cyberview is currently busy building eight properties for, among others, Dell, Satyam, Hewlett-Packard, KRU Studios, and the Knowledge Workers Development Institute.

These properties are worth a combined RM585 million, and will add 1.65 million sq ft of new office space in Cyberjaya by end-2010, breaching the anticipated five million sq ft mark.

Redza said it will also create 7,000 new jobs by then, increasing the current workforce of 19,000.

Cyberview, meanwhile, has postponed the launch of its flagship housing project, [email protected], worth over RM100 million, to the fourth quarter.

It was aiming to launch the project, comprising 1,000 units of serviced apartments and double-storey houses worth from RM88,000 to RM168,000 respectively, in August last year.

The delay is due to unexpected demand from knowledge workers in Cyberjaya, Redza said.

Today, some 25 per cent of Cyberjaya's total land size is developed with proper infrastructure, public amenities, houses, commercial blocks, SME buildings and learning institutions.

"It would be unrealistic to assume that we would be unaffected by job cuts by companies operating from Cyberjaya. But it is realistic to believe the effect on Cyberjaya will be more muted compared to other areas," he told Business Times.

Emkay: More office space in Cyberjaya
By Sharen KaurPublished: 2009/04/10

The property developer may start launching new projects from July this year to add 8.2 million sq ft of office space in Cyberjaya over the next five to seven years.

THE Emkay Group, a property developer owned by Tan Sri Mustapha Kamal Abu Bakar, is providing more office space at Cyberjaya, Selangor, to capture demand at the fast-growing township.

It is building an 11-storey office tower at its NeoCyber integrated development and two office buildings, known as block C and D, at MKN Embassy Techzone, an information technology park.

Techzone is being developed by MKN Embassy Development Sdn Bhd, a 60:40 venture between Emkay Group and Bangalore's Embassy Group.

The three new buildings will provide 826,000 sq ft of office space in Cyberjaya by early 2010.

"We are targeting for another five million sq ft of office space over the next five years," Mustapha Kamal said at the launch of block D by chief secretary to the government, Tan Sri Mohd Sidek Hassan.

Since it ventured into Cyberjaya in 2006, Emkay has completed block A and B at Techzone, and Bangunan Mustapha Kamal, providing 692,238 sq ft of office space.

Emkay may start launching new projects from July this year to add 8.2 million sq ft of office space in Cyberjaya over the next five to seven years.

The new projects could be worth a combined RM3.2 billion. They include the phase two of Techzone, which will have six purpose-built office blocks and the extension of NeoCyber.

Emkay's investment strategy in Cyberjaya is to lease the buildings first and then sell them.

Last year, it sold block A and B, and Bangunan Mustapha Kamal, to Amanah Raya Bhd, a public trustee company wholly-owned by the Minister of Finance Inc, for RM266 million.

Block A and B have been leased for 10 to 15 years to the Public Service Department and the Malaysian Administrative Modernisation and Management Planning Unit (Mampu).

Bangunan Mustapha Kamal has a long-term tenant in the Education Ministry.

Emkay is in the process of selling block C, which may be leased to Pejabat Pengarah Tanah dan Galian, and block D, where it is finalising a deal to lease it to a government agency.

Business Times learnt that Cyberview Sdn Bhd, a government-owned entity responsible for the development of Cyberjaya, may buy block C and D, which are worth around RM200 million in total.

MKN Embassy Techzone Phase 2 GDV at RM800m
by Financial Daily
Thursday, 09 April 2009 23:34

CYBERJAYA: The Emkay Group expects the second phase of MKN Embassy Techzone to have a sales or gross development value (GDV) of RM800 million upon completion within five years.

Emkay chairman Tan Sri Mustapha Kamal Abu Bakar said work on the second phase was scheduled to start this year. The total built-up will be two million square feet, comprising six office blocks of between six and 18 storeys.

He added that it was one of the measures the property company, together with Setia Haruman Sdn Bhd and Cyberview Sdn Bhd, was undertaking to increase office space in Cyberjaya.

“Currently, we have a total of 4.7 million sq ft of office space in Cyberjaya. By the end of this year, we will see a total of 5.5 million sq ft of office space as there would be an additional 800,000 sq ft available.

“We are projecting another five million sq ft of office space in the next five years. Emkay alone will provide three million sq ft and that’s why I am quite confident,” he told reporters here after the launch of Block D, the fourth building of MKN Embassy Techzone Phase 1.

Emkay’s 75%-subsidiary Setia Haruman is the master developer of Cyberjaya, while Cyberview is a government-owned company and landowner of Cyberjaya.

In his keynote address at the event, Chief Secretary to the government Tan Sri Mohd Sidek Hassan urged the Sepang Municipal Council to revise the parking ratio of 1:320 gross sq ft to 1:500 nett sq ft, to further encourage development in the township.

The MKN Embassy Techzone has two phases and is jointly developed by MKN Embassy Development Sdn Bhd, a 60:40 joint-venture company between Emkay Group and Embassy Group of India.

With a GDV of about RM400 million, Phase 1, consisting of four blocks of six-storey office buildings with total built-up of one million sq ft, is being built on a 4.08-hectare land. Work started in December 2006 and is scheduled to be completed early-2010.

Block A and B of MKN Embassy Techzone, which is owned by Amanah Raya Bhd, are leased to the Public Service Department (JPA) and Malaysian Administrative Modernisation and Management Planning Unit (Mampu), respectively.

Block C and D are still under construction, and will be leased to the Lands and Mines Office (Pejabat Tanah dan Galian) and another government agency, respectively.

“In light of the downturn, it is very difficult to get tenants and that’s why JPA and Mampu came in. However, they are only renting, and they might leave a few years later. It will slowly become an IT (information technology) hub with more ICT companies establishing their offices here,” Mustapha said.

Embassy Group’s chairman Jitu Virwani said the India-based company saw the opportunity to grow in Malaysia as many companies were looking to set their base here.

The Embassy Group, which specialises in developing information and communication technology (ICT) business parks, is the largest owner of the office space in Bangalore and boasts of tenants such as IBM, Fidelity Investments, Yahoo and LG Soft.

Cyberjaya to get more WiFi hotspots
Monday April 20, 2009
By CHARLES FERNANDEZ

WHILE Cyberjaya represents Malaysia’s next generation leap into technology, the present scattering of WiFi hotspots in the intelligent city seems paltry for the city’s burgeoning number of Internet users.

The good news, however, is that Cyberview Sdn Bhd (CSB) is planning to roll out more hotspots to cover a wider area to enable Cyberjaya residents and those working in the township to enjoy WiFi access.

With IT-based companies, both foreign and local, conducting business here, wireless broadband is the uptake of choice among new and existing Internet users but the lack of hotspots is a common grouse among residents and visitors.

CSB managing director Datuk Redza Rafiq agreed that the city lacked certain facilities normally taken for granted in a smart city.

“We do not have a city-wide wireless broadband access WiFi zone and all we have are pockets of hotspots,’’ he said.

Redza said there were designated public areas with free Internet access but this would be further developed to e-enable all populated areas.

“We are calling for tenders soon and, hopefully, the whole system will be in place by the end of the year. Work will begin next month,’’ he added.

Redza said CSB is confident of achieving a good range of coverage in the city.

In December last year, residents of the Smart Homes located next to the Multimedia University (MMU) directed their anger at developers Paramoden Sdn Bhd, a member of the Emkay Group, for calling the units Smarthomes when there seemed to be nothing ‘smart’ about the homes.

“We can’t connect to the Internet even though we are located very close to the MMU,’’ a resident had said.

More government agencies expected to shift to Cyberjaya

Purpose-built: Sidek (left) launching the
MKN Embassy Techzone in Cyberjaya.


WITH the recent entry of several non ICT-based government and government-linked companies (GLCs), like the Malaysian Administrative Modernisation and Manage*ment Planning Unit (Mampu) and the Public Services Department (PSD), Cyberjaya is slowly moving away from being a information communication technology (ICT) hub.

The intelligent city was created to complement the newly launched Multimedia Super Corridor (MSC) in 1997, but with the recent launch of the MKN purpose-built buildings at the MKN Embassy Techzone, more government agencies are expected to make Cyberjaya their preferred address.

Chief Secretary to the Government Tan Sri Mohd Sidek Hassan, who launched Block D of the MKN Embassy project, said that ideally, Cyberjaya should be an ICT hub but one had be willing to change in order to survive in the light of the uncertain global climate.

“We must change to enjoy a business presence within an ecosystem,” he added.

Sidek said he was happy that MKN and the Embassy Group of India, which had a 40% stake in the project, were bringing about balanced development in Cyberjaya.

Emkay Group executive chairman Tan Sri Mustapha Kamal said the MKN Embassy Techzone project, consisting of two phases of development, would encompass a campus-like concept to provide a conducive working environment for the knowledge workers

“We hope with the completion of the project, more government agencies, including ICT companies, both local and foreign, would make the Cyberjaya Flagship Zone (CFZ) their business address.

Mustapha said the strategy was to lease the buildings first and then sell them.

He said that since last year, Emkay had sold Blocks A and B to Amanah Raya Bhd and were in the process of selling Block C to another government agency.

Phase One will consist of of four office blocks with a total floor space of 250,000 sq ft (23,226 sq m) and will be completed early next year, while Phase Two, with six office blocks comprising a total floor space of two million square feet (185,806 sq m) is expected to be completed within the next five years.

The Embassy Group of India is involved in the construction of office buildings mainly in Bangalore, and to date it has provided a total floor space of 19 million square feet (1,765,150 sq m) for ICT giants like IBM, Microsoft, Sun-Microsystem, Fidelity, Target and ANZ Bank.

Cyberjaya project on the way
TheStar



Sealed: Azman signing a plaque to open Block A as

A PIONEER project focusing on integrated facilities for office blocks is slowly taking off in Cyberjaya.

The Campus Development Project promotes the use of shared amenities like landscapes, cafeteria, lounge area, multi-level carpark and design elements for office blocks built by MKN Embassy Development Sdn Bhd, a joint venture between the Emkay Group and The Embassy Group of India.

The concept is taking shape within four office blocks built under Phase 1 of the MKN Embassy Techzone located off Persiaran Teknokrat 2.

The phase sits on a 4.08ha plot with each office block offering 22,500 sq m of space.

Block A is ready while Block B is 80% complete. The entire project should be completed by 2010.

At the official opening of Block A on Wednesday, AMBank Group chairman Tan Sri Azman Hashim said the entity was committed to working together with the Emkay Group to develop Information Technology buildings within the MKN Embassy Techzone.

Emkay Group chairman Tan Sri Mustapha Kamal Abu Bakar said the success of the project implemented by The Embassy Group in India had spurred Emkay to forge a partnership with its Indian counterpart.

“The Embassy Group owns 1.76mil sq m of office space in Bangalore which is being rented out to global IT companies like Yahoo, Microsoft, HP, IBM and more,” he said.

Among the guests present were Sepang Municipal Council president Azizan Mohd Sidin, MKN Embassy Development (Embassy Group of India) director Jitendra Mohandas Virwani and Setia Haruman Sdn Bhd chief operating officer C.K. Lao.

IT business park coming to Cyberjaya
Mustapha’s Emkay Group and India’s Embassy Group



MKN-Embassy Techzone @ Cyberjaya

Cyberjaya is about to experience a second re-awakening, said executive chairman of MK Land Holdings Bhd Mustapha Kamal. Although the intelligent city was launched 10 years ago, it is currently undergoing a second wave of development.

Mustapha’s Emkay Group and India’s Embassy Group will jointly develop Cyberjaya’s upcoming information technology (IT) business park, which he is confident will attract many multinational and local companies.

Called MKN-Embassy Techzone, the first phase, which is expected to cost over RM300 million, of the park will feature two blocks of buildings with each offering 250,000sq ft of office space within a 4ha site.

The first block is expected to be complete by January next year and the second by April.

The Embassy Group, which specializes in developing ICT business parks, is the largest owner of office space in Bangalore and boasts tenants such as IBM, Fidelity Investments, Yahoo and LG Soft.

MKN Embassy Development Sdn Bhd, the joint-venture company undertaking the project, hopes to entice several of these companies to Cyberjaya.

The first 10 years saw the placement of first-class infrastructure and facilities but the next five will be a marketing phase to investors, said Mustapha, adding that several multinational companies have already shown interest.

ITU's Global Cybersecurity Agenda Housed In Malaysia
International Multilateral Partnership Against Cyber-Terrorism (IMPACT)

KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 4 (Bernama) -- The International Telecommunication Union (ITU) has concluded an agreement with the International Multilateral Partnership Against Cyber-Terrorism (IMPACT) to operationalise the ITU Global Cybersecurity Agenda (GCA).

IMPACT's state-of-the-art global headquarters in Cyberjaya, here, will be the home of ITUs Global Cybersecurity Agenda, said ITU in a statement.

ITU said its collaboration with IMPACT is aimed at building synergies to provide real-time analysis, aggregation and dissemination of global cyber threat information.

It will also cover an early warning system and emergency response to global cyber threats; and training and skills development on the technical, legal and policy aspects of cybersecurity.

It said the agreement is in line with the decision of the World Summit on the Information Society to build security and confidence in the use of information communication technologies (ICT).

The summit had also called for the coordination of multi-stakeholder implementation of information exchange, creation of knowledge, sharing of best practices, and assistance in developing public/private partnerships.

The Memorandum of Understanding was signed in Bangkok during ITU TELECOM ASIA 2008 by ITU Secretary-General Dr Hamadoun Toure and Chairman of the IMPACT Management Board Mohammad Noor Amin.

The ITU Global Cybersecurity Agenda (GCA) is an ITU framework for international cooperation for governments, international law enforcement authorities, the private sector, international organisations and civil society to make cyberspace more secure in an increasingly networked information society.

The international effort is focused on strengthening five areas: legal framework, technical measures, organisational structures, capacity building and international cooperation.

ITU said while the GCA will be housed at the IMPACT Centre, ITU will have a virtual showcase in Geneva of the early warning system, crisis management and real-time analysis of global cyber threats.

IMPACT initiatives, such as the Global Response Centre as well as training and skills development, security assurance, research, and international cooperation will be conducted under the auspices of the GCA, it said.

Satyam has big plans for Malaysian facility

Satyam Computer Services Ltd, a leading global consulting and information technology

CYBERJAYA: Satyam Computer Services Ltd, a leading global consulting and information technology services provider, has announced that its Global Solutions Centre (GSC) here is fully operational.

This marked the first phase of the rollout of Satyam's Global Delivery Campus in Malaysia.
Satyam founder and chairman B. Ramalinga Raju said the facility would become the company's largest software hub outside India.

"The GSC is already staffed by 300 (mostly Malaysian) IT engineers, who support Satyam's Asean, Middle Eastern and US customers," he told reporters after the GSC launch here.

Also present were Second Finance Minister Tan Sri Nor Mohamed Yakcop, Deputy Science, Technology and Innovations Minister Datuk Kong Cho Ha, and Multimedia Development Corporation (MDeC) chairman Tan Sri Abdul Halim Ali and chief executive officer Datuk Badlisham Ghazali.

Ramalinga said Satyam's progress with its GSC accelerated consolidation of its Global Delivery Model 2.0, an integral part of the company's strategy to provide distributed delivery capability for global customers.

GDM 2.0 calls for components of a large-scale projects to be completed wherever it makes the most business sense, rather than having an entire programme take place in a single facility, he said.

This approach, according to him, delivers significant cycle time and cost reductions, in addition to quality enhancement.

Ramalinga said the Malaysia facility also reflected the company's commitment to create an alternative workforce, multicountry model and a global delivery approach offering customised business solutions.

He said the facility would be integrated with other Satyam's GSCs across the globe, serving as a major software development centre to bring solutions to market more quickly via the company's low-risk global delivery model.

Ramalinga said the facility is expected to create more than 500 jobs for Malaysian graduates over the next 12 months, with the number increasing to 2,000 in the next few years.

"We consider this facility to be a significant part of Satyam's commitment to multi-dimensional investments in Malaysia, an excellent alternative for solutions development," he said.

He also said that Malaysia was chosen because of the country's advanced infrastructure, rich IT talent pool, competitive cost environment and favourable business climate.

The latest facility is a high-tech centre featuring state-of-the art infrastructure and video-conferencing facilities.

Equipped with high-end security features such as biometric (fingerprint) identification, the GSC also has three training labs and round-the-clock access to Satyam's global knowledge repository.

The opening of the facility followed the signing of a memorandum of understanding in December last year between Satyam and MDeC, which oversees the MSC Malaysia programme.

Satyam's development and delivery centres in the United States, Canada, Britain, Hungary, Eqypt, the United Arab Emirates, India, China, Malaysia, Singapore and Australia serve 570 clients, including one-third of the US Fortune 500 companies.

IT services provider Satyam Computer Services Limited is setting up a 15-acre campus at Cyber Jaya, the IT hub of Malaysia, which is expected to be operational by this year end, said Prasenjit Kundu, head (global solutions centre in Malaysia), Satyam.

Kundu said the proposed campus would be the largest campus in Malaysia, providing high-end services, including business process management (BPM), data warehousing, Oracle and engineering practices.

"We plan to add 5,000 associates to the new campus in phases, from the present 453-odd people. The first phase will see the addition 2,000 associates in the next two to three years, besides creation of a centre of excellence (CoE) for BPM soon," he said. Satyam currently has three CoEs dedicated to data warehousing, ERP and engineering practice in Malaysia.

Satyam has announced the commencement of its Faculty Sabbatical Programme (FSP). About 25 faculty members from key Malaysian universities are being taken through a month-long programme to help them gain a clear understanding of Satyam's learning model and enable them to groom fresh graduates for entry level positions.

The scope includes technology, process and essential behavioral traits. In addition, they will also be exposed to real life projects and understand critical factors that can ensure success.

"This is part of a larger strategic competency development Initiative called Campus Link. It is aimed at bridging the gap between academia and industry needs. Our touch points are primarily at three levels -- students who make up tomorrow resource pool, faculty who are responsible for making them employable and administration which is responsible for keeping the curriculum current and relevant. Through this initiative, we endeavour to develop sustainable academic relations with major universities and educational establishments. As a contributing member of the people development ecosystem, we do our part to help harness the full potential of ICT in Malaysia," Rajul Asthana, head, Satyam Learning Centre, said.

Cyberview Expects Number Of Companies In Cyberjaya To Increase By 10 Pct Next Year



PETALING JAYA, (Bernama) -- Cyberview Sdn Bhd expects a 10 percent increase in the number of companies housed at Cyberjaya next year, its managing director, Redza Rafiq said.

Cyberview, a government-linked company, was formed to undertake the development of Cyberjaya as a global Information Communication Technology (ICT), multimedia and services hub.

Redza said that despite the current uncertainty in the global economic market, he was confident of achieving this target based on the excellent infrastructure and eco-system support offered by Cyberview.

Cyberjaya, at the center of the Multimedia Super Corridor (MSC) Malaysia, has shown an improvement of 57 percent between 2006 and 2008 in the number of companies housed there.

It now hosts 474 companies,of whom 30 are multinationals and 444 home-grown.

"Of the 444, 181 are small and medium entreprises at the SME Technopreneur Centre Cluster," he told Bernama recently.

He also said that for 2009, a few local and international companies had shown interest in locating their businesses at Cyberjaya.

"We have signed an agreement with KRU Studios Sdn Bhd, a media and entertainment company, to build its headquarters in Cyberjaya next year. We have identified a 15.39 acre plot of land for this purpose," he said.

According to Redza, the studio is expected to be completed by the third quarter of next year.


He also disclosed that an Indian company, Malladi (M) Sdn Bhd, had plans to open an office in Cyberjaya.

Launched in 1997 by the then Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamed, Cyberjaya is equipped with information technology infrastructure,residential premises as well as enterprise and institutional development.

Only 20 percent of its 7,000 acre landbank has been developed.The total development is expected to be completed after 2020.

Redza added that Cyberview also offered programmes to SME technopreneurs to develop their businesses and other support services including business plan development, training and development,marketing and consulting, business information and resources along with funding access facilitation services.
