Malaysia's Digital Economy: A New Driver of Development



For Malaysia to continue progressing in its development path, the digital economy is poised to be the new driver of development. However, businesses in Malaysia have adopted digital technologies less readily than the government and population.
  • Rapid growth in basic digital adoption has contributed to a new digital divide where Malaysia lags behind international peers in digital adoption by businesses.
  • Only 62% of businesses are connected to the Internet, 46% has fixed broadband (often of low quality) and 18% have a web presence of some kind.
  • Large export-oriented firms dominate the digital economy as they adopt e-commerce at higher rates than SMEs.
  • Most of the digital economy’s measurable growth has been concentrated in the manufacturing sector of urbanized states.
  • For the country to ensure that growth in the digital economy is broad-based and sustainable, key barriers related to digital connectivity, entrepreneurship and taxation need to be addressed.

Digital connectivity:

Ensuring that Malaysia’s digital infrastructure provides consistent, reliable and ultra-fast broadband service is key to unlocking the potential of the digital economy.
  • Malaysia lags in the coverage and adoption of fixed broadband services.
  • Lack of market competition has also led to high prices, low coverage, and limited ambitions for fixed broadband in Malaysia.
  • Telekom Malaysia controls 92% of fixed broadband subscriptions, making the market more concentrated than that of ASEAN or OECD countries.
  • Policy objectives for Malaysia’s digital infrastructure are two-fold:
    - Enhance the quality and affordability of broadband services
    - Improve access to ultra-fast broadband networks

The Dynamic Digital Economy
In 1996, the Malaysian Government established the Multimedia Development Corporation (MDeC) to manage the Multimedia Super Corridor (MSC) Malaysia, a national initiative to promote both the nation’s Information and Communications Technology (ICT) industry, as well as provide a test-bed for the global ICT industry. Two decades forward, we can proudly claim:



The Digital Economy refers to the actions taken by both the private and public sector to adopt and utilise digital technologies to communicate with the people, deliver goods and services and meet other core functions to raise productivity, revenue and incomes. Today, it’s estimated that the Digital Economy is worth USD3 trillion. Digital is not part of the economy, it IS the economy. In Malaysia, the government is targeting a 22% contribution from the Digital Economy to the country’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP).

Sabah's digital infrastructure master plan to focus on three sectors
Bernama July 03, 2019 17:41 pm +08

Quote:
KOTA KINABALU (July 3): The Sabah government will draw up a digital infrastructure development master plan that will focus on three main sectors, comprising industry, tourism and education.

State Education and Innovation Minister, Datuk Dr Yusof Yacob, said currently, Sabah does not have such a master plan to the extent of causing limited digital connectivity, besides not having a clear direction in digital infrastructure development.

"This master plan is vital in the effort to develop digital infrastructure in Sabah, to enable the state to have better digital connectivity.

“This effort will also ensure that Sabah does not lag behind in development, as well as [in] economic growth,” he said when met by reporters at the Sabah Educators’ Jalinan Mesra Hari Raya event today.

Yusof said his ministry was also drawing up a human resource development master plan to see the human resource needs in Sabah, including in its public service and industrial sectors, as such a plan had never been wholly implemented in the state.

"We need to plan, including the higher education level, as we want to train the people of Sabah towards meeting its human resource needs,” he added.

On today’s Aidilfitri celebration which was also attended by state Education director Mistirine Radin, Yusof said it was also a platform for strengthening cooperation and understanding among educators in Sabah, towards achieving the objective of producing a knowledgeable and highly-skilled human capital. — Bernama

Malaysia must buckle up in adopting IR 4.0 — industry consultant
Bernama July 08, 2019 19:43 pm +08


Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR (July 8): Malaysia is in a strong position to capture opportunities derived from Industrial Revolution (IR) 4.0, but it must buckle up to push for the digital transformation of the nations’ manufacturing services, said an industry consultant.

Lean Smart Industry Solutions PLT founder Dr Azlan Nithia said technological changes were vast in applications and could be complex, hence, a concerted effort must be taken to rally the manufacturing industry players together.

“We also must drive the conversation and awareness to the technological developments and opportunities, share knowledge and experiences to create a justifiable return of investment, so that our nation will capture the leadership position that is available to us and not being left out,” he said in a statement today.

He also warned that the failure to transform quickly and adopt IR 4.0 would result in losing the country’s economic stake and opportunity.

According to the World Economic Forum (WEF) ‘Readiness for the Future of Production Report’, Malaysia is among 25 countries assessed to be in the best position to benefit from the changing nature of production.

The report is assessing how well-positioned global economies are to shape and benefit from changes in the production driven by the Fourth Industrial Revolution (IR 4.0).

Meanwhile, Lean Smart, an advanced and smart manufacturing training provider, is organising International Smart Manufacturing 4.0 Conference (ISMC2019) from Sept 18-20, this year.

The three-day conference will discuss various readiness challenges faced by the manufacturing industries in Malaysia and will feature policy, expert, research and case study presentations by distinguished speakers and panellists. — Bernama

Sarawak can be on par with developed countries in digital journey — Abang Jo
Bernama July 08, 2019 18:42 pm +08
Quote:
KUCHING (July 8): Sarawak cannot afford to be left behind in terms of digital technology adoption and digital economic growth, which can very well benefit the people, said Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg.

In fact, he said Sarawak could also be on the same par with developed countries in this digital journey which saw the world experiencing more intricate and complex technological terms, including 5G telecommunications, Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence (AI), Voice Recognition, Virtual and Augmented Reality (VR/AR).

“Either we push ahead in new research areas or we will be always a follower without being able to bring much progress to our people and country,” he said in the opening address at the official launch of International Digital Economy Conference Sarawak 2019 (IDECS) here today.

Elaborating further, Abang Johari said there were so many other benefits of this digital economy, which almost every country in this world is forgoing into, and Sarawak had even charted its strategies and action plans which were currently in the early stage of implementation.

“Some of our early initiatives to implement our digital economy strategies are in digital government, manufacturing, smart city, tourism, agriculture and e-commerce.

“As for the digital government initiative, an online identification and authentication system known as ‘Sarawak ID’ has been implemented to enable the public to access and use the various online services or application systems of the Sarawak government,” he said.

The chief minister said as of July 1, the number of Sarawak ID registered users stood at 208,644 with 20 government services had been made accessible online.

On IDECS, Abang Johari said this was the third edition of the conference and involved 2,300 delegates from all around the world.

“To accelerate further our journey, we are partnering with top international digital technology players and I am glad that, tomorrow, there will be 10 Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) exchanges between Sarawak Multimedia Authority (SMA) and various international partners relating to Sarawak Digital Economy.

“There will also be one joint venture agreement (JVA) exchange between SACOFA and Datastream Technology Sdn Bhd (DST) of Brunei Darussalam, relating to providing high-speed retail internet services in Sarawak, and one MOU exchange between SACOFA and XPERANTI on partnership for the provision of IoT Solutions in Sarawak,” he added. — Bernama

Sarawak, Brunei to explore digital connectivity, collaboration
Bernama July 10, 2019 00:56 am +08
Quote:
KUCHING (July 9): Sarawak will explore the possibility of using the digital gateway in neighbouring Brunei, to link with the state’s fibre optic communications system, said Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg.

He said the proposal to enhance connectivity via collaboration was among matters discussed during his meeting with Brunei Minister of Transport and Infocommunications, Datuk Seri Setia Awang Abdul Mutalib Mohammad Yusof here today.

”He brought the message from the Sultan of Brunei that it’s good for Sarawak and Brunei to collaborate in terms of the whole economic development,” he told reporters after officially closing the two-day International Digital Economy Conference Sarawak (IDECS 2019) at the Borneo Convention Centre Kuching (BCCK) here today.

Abang Johari said a Brunei company, DST Communications, would be working with SACOFA Sdn Bhd (SACOFA), Sarawak’s leading ICT infrastructure company, on the ongoing collaboration between the state and Brunei.

In the fields of tourism and agriculture, he said, there is already a special committee taskforce under the two deputy chief ministers – Datuk Amar Awang Tengah Ali Hassan and Datuk Amar Douglas Uggah Embas — to establish a common agricultural area between Kuala Lawas and Merapok in northern Sarawak and Brunei.

Earlier, he witnessed the exchange of memorandum of understanding (MoU) documents between the Sarawak Multimedia Authority and six global technology companies, including IBM and Huawei, on collaboration to set up the Sarawak Centre of Excellence for Digital Economy.

The centre will be based at the Kuching campus of the Centre of Technical Excellence Sarawak (CENTEXS). — Bernama

SAP remains steadfastly focused on Malaysia's Digital Economy growth
July 15, 2019 @ 4:01pm



SAP president and managing director (Southeast Asia) Claus Andresen said SAP remains steadfastly focused on the continued growth of Malaysia’s Digital Economy and encompassed areas such as nurturing talent, growing the local ecosystem and in having established a service delivery centre in Kuala Lumpur for the SEA region.
Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR: SAP Malaysia Sdn Bhd, a global enterprise software leader, will remains steadfastly focused on the continued growth of Malaysia’s Digital Economy.

President and managing director (Southeast Asia) Claus Andresen said SAP’s focus encompassed areas such as nurturing talent, growing the local ecosystem and in having established a service delivery centre in Kuala Lumpur for the SEA region.

"SAP aims to support every company to become a best-run business. Together, we help the world run better and improve people’s lives throughout the world.

"SAP has been in Malaysia for 27 years and have observed while playing our part in the country’s Digital Economy growing from strength to strength,” Claus said.

According to Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC), digital economy contributed some 18.3 per cent of gross domestic product (GDP) in 2017.

On the talent and education front, Claus said SAP continues to develop human capital for Malaysia.

“Under the SAP University Alliances initiative, SAP continues to collaborate with MDEC on the MyUniAlliance programme which provides training for some three thousand students per year,” Claus said, adding that the programme started in 2011.

Eighteen Institutes of Higher Learning [IHL], including two foreign universities, have participated in the programme, he further said.

"These IHLs bring SAP's technology and best practices to students in undergraduate and graduate programmes,” he said.

"Should these graduates go on to become SAP consultants, they could expect to be one of the best consultants in industry."

On growing the local ecosystem, SAP continues to work with local business partners so that they may continue innovating on their home-grown solutions.

One such company is SBOne Solutions, a wholly-owned subsidiary of TFP Solutions Bhd and certified SAP partner, which offers professional SAP B1 consultancy and expertise to small medium enterprises (SMEs) throughout Malaysia.

SBOne vice president Davinder Singh said together with SAP Malaysia, the company is currently working with organisations like SME Corp to educate the SME community on the importance of technology.

“SMEs need to realise the role of technology as a business enabler that paves the way to greater profitability and operational efficiencies,” said Davinder.

“Our solutions based on the SAP B1 platform aims to simplify processes for them so that these SMEs become more productive.”

Davinder added that SBOne is also enhancing the SAP B1 platform to address the halal market's needs.

“SBOne shares SAP’s vision that, being a best-run business means being an ‘intelligent enterprise’.

"Together with SAP, our strategy is therefore to deliver the ‘intelligent enterprise’ for our customers, so that they can achieve their desired outcomes,” said Davinder.

On Malaysia as an ICT (information, communications and technology) hub, Claus said last year, SAP had chosen Malaysia for its solution delivery centre (SDC) catering to enterprises throughout SEA.

The SDC has increased cost-effectiveness and scalable service delivery while addressing customer proximity for enterprises employing SAP technologies within SEA.

“Malaysia lies at the heart of SEA where there are various multinational companies (MNCs) operating out of the country,” Claus said, citing the country’s robust infrastructure, strategic location within SEA coupled with the country’s dynamic business environment as contributors to the choice of location.

He added that skilled expertise is also one of Malaysia’s greatest assets, and that the SDC team size is growing.

“The workforce in Malaysia is young, educated and productive, proving to be one of the best in the region. Diversity is one of Malaysia’s greatest strengths, and our objective is to provide SAP’s customers with access to the best global network of consultants with expertise in SAP’s latest technologies,” he added.

Today, SAP serves 437,000 customers in more than 180 countries worldwide, including 92 per cent of Forbes Global 2000 companies, 98 per cent of the 100 most valued brands and 100 per cent of the Dow Jones top scoring sustainability companies.

Three more varsities get premier tech status
By Zulita Mustafa - July 17, 2019 @ 11:15am

Quote:
DIGITAL disruption is creating new job opportunities and changing the way we work. The World Economic Forum predicts that 65 per cent of students today will be working in jobs that have yet to be defined, and most of them will require digital skills.

Now, more than ever, the country needs to equip its youth with the right skill sets and mindset to ensure that they remain relevant. Recently, HELP University, Islamic International University Malaysia (IIUM) and Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman have been recognised as Premier Digital Tech Institutions, joining 13 others with the same status.

This initiative is jointly developed by the Education Ministry and Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC) to produce top talents and future leaders in digital technology

Premier Digital Tech Institutions provide an optimum ecosystem in preparing graduates to meet industry demand. Institutions applying for the recognition have to undergo meticulous assessments to ensure that they provide quality tech education and facilities.

According to IIUM Kulliyyah of Information Technology Student Affairs deputy dean Mohd Syarqawy Hamzah, MDEC has set a high standard, which does not only look into the courses offered and student achievements, but also the support given by the university.

It includes those provided by IIUM’s Counselling and Career Services Centre, which not only offers career advice, but also builds relationships with the industry and organise events to benefit them and its students.

For HELP University, the recognition and status will boost its mission to produce self-directing graduates, who can master new skills efficiently.

Prior to being recognised, HELP University had to undergo intensive assessments by an auditing team comprising representatives from the industry, Higher Education Department and MDEC.

“We endeavour to instill in our students the attitude and values to prepare them for a lifetime of continuous learning and leadership,” said Faculty of Computing and Digital Technology dean Dr Sien Ven Yu.

“Our close links with the industry have enabled us to introduce an innovative series of final-year projects and internship programmes, which are supervised by practising IT professionals. This arrangement not only offer students valuable work experience, but also provide them with specific knowledge and specialised skills.”

At the recent award ceremony, Education Minister Dr Maszlee Malik said Premier Digital Tech Institutions would ensure that Malaysians were proficient in data analytics, artificial intelligence, robotics and digital marketing.

“Talent is key for Malaysia to succeed in the Fourth Industrial Revolution (IR4.0). It is critical that we prepare local talents for future jobs,” he said in his speech read out by Private Institution of Higher Learning deputy director-general Professor Dr Mohd Saleh Jaafar.

MDEC chief executive officer Surina Shukri said the corporation was a strong proponent of public-private partnerships, and this Premier Digital Tech Institutions initiative was a great example of how such alliances could powerfully impact the growth of Malaysia’s digital economy.

Government to support corporate sector in exploring IR 4.0
Bernama July 19, 2019 00:58 am +08

Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR (July 18): The Government is prepared to provide full support to the corporate sector to spur Industrial Revolution 4.0 (IR 4.0).

Energy, Science, Technology, Environment and Climate Change Minister Yeo Bee Yin said the support included open policies to ensure that the players were not only capable of being followers but also become industry leaders.

Although the Government might only provide limited support, the sector could still achieve much with existing technological advances, she said in her closing remark at the Beyond Paradigm Summit 2019 here, today.

Yeo also emphasised that the corporate sector should take the opportunity to penetrate the market by being more innovative to compete in the global space.

"It's very important for us and the corporate sector in the country to embrace new technology, is even wiser for the government to do so. Because the emerging technology does not have a winner yet," she said.

The two-day Beyond Paradigm Summit that began yesterday with the theme ‘Creating Distinctive Digital Solutions’, showcased advanced technologies encapsulating the core ideas of automation and data exchange surrounding IR 4.0.

The summit was hosted by Serba Dinamik Holdings Berhad, a global integrated engineering services provider.

The summit also saw Sophia, the social humanoid robot powered by artificial intelligence, the core technology of IR 4.0, featured for the first time in Malaysia. Sophia stands testament to how state-of-the-art artificial intelligence can value-add businesses as it binds together various separate processes through the Internet of Things (IoT).

Meanwhile, Serba Dinamik chief executive officer and group managing director Datuk Dr Ir Mohd Abdul Karim Abdullah said the summit achieved its objective to provide industry players with an opportunity to understand more about IR4.0.

"The summit’s primary goal is to bring together businesses that have been working on adopting small-scale IR 4.0 solutions and gathering them together to initiate ideas, discuss concepts and implement these ideas to change Malaysia’s digital landscape,” he said.

Bukit Mertajam heading to be Penang’s first digital city
Bernama July 26, 2019 21:45 pm +08
Quote:
GEORGE TOWN (July 26): Bukit Mertajam is moving towards becoming the first digital city in Penang by August 2020 and will employ a concept that integrates information and communication technology (ICT) devices to monitor its environment, operations and services.

The State Government's technology partner, Smartviro Sdn Bhd, will undertake the project which aims to provide a better quality of life for Bukit Mertajam folk through the integration of the latest technology in their daily life.

Smartviro director Datuk Lee Aik Heng said air and noise pollution monitoring stations have been set up at several locations in Bukit Mertajam and this will be followed up with water pollution monitoring stations.

He said the work to develop the monitoring stations started this month and will be completed in August next year.

“Eventually, we would also include traffic cameras, facial recognition technology and student locater programme using the global positioning system (GPS) in this initiative,” he told a press conference here.

Meanwhile, Penang Women and Family Development, Gender Inclusiveness and Non-Islamic Religious Affairs Committee chairman Chong Eng said the process of transforming Bukit Mertajam into a digital city would take an area of up to 18 sq km involving 20 housing estates and surrounding areas, which costs RM500,000.

"The main objective is to provide a better quality of life using the latest technologies to communicate (information) on environmental quality and pollution source, awareness of traffic congestion, transport, services and goods, security and energy efficiency, and sustainable economic development," she said.

Dagang Net receives contract extension for NSW for Trade Facilitation
POSTED ON JULY 29, 2019, MONDAY AT 12:01 AM BUSINESS


Quote:
KUALA LUMPUR: Dagang Net Technologies Sdn Bhd (Dagang Net), a wholly-owned subsidiary company of Dagang NeXchange Bhd (DNeX), has received the contract extension from the Government of Malaysia for the National Single Window (NSW) for Trade Facilitation.

The contract extension is for a period of two years commencing from Sept 1, 2019 until Aug 31, 2021.

Dagang Net has been the operator of the NSW for Trade Facilitation since its launch in 2009, and the company is backed by 30 years of experience – in terms of knowledge, expertise and operational know-how – in offering eServices for Trade Facilitation.

The NSW for Trade Facilitation includes six core eServices namely eDeclare, ePCO, ePermit, ePermitSTA, eManifest and ePayment, which provide the trading community with connectivity to Customs and relevant agencies for import and export document processing.

Such trade environment can help expedite cargo clearance process, reduce cost and time of doing business, and contribute positively to the country’s trade efficiency and global competitiveness.

“We would like to express our deepest appreciation to the Government of Malaysia namely the Ministry of Finance and the Royal Malaysian Customs Department for their continued confidence in us,” said DNeX executive deputy chairman and Dagang Net executive chairman Datuk Samsul Husin.

“We remain committed to offer top notch eServices in Trade Facilitation that not only meet requirements of customers but also offer value that can help our customers further improve their operations and grow their business,” he said.

As part of its continuous improvements, Dagang Net is facilitating new services introduced by the Government for the trading community, he added.

Through its electronic Preferential Certificate of Origin (ePCO), Dagang Net is supporting the implementation of the Asean-Hong Kong, China Free Trade Agreement (AHKFTA), which will start Aug 1 this year.

Manufacturers or exporters who need certification of the country of origin for a particular product can use ePCO to obtain the Preferential Certificate of Origin in the form of an official online document. This document is sufficient to satisfy requirements of relevant authorities and can further be used as a supporting document for other corresponding Preferential Certificate of Origin
