MSC MALAYSIA

ATTRACTING INVESTORS, GLOBALISING LOCAL TECH CHAMPIONS

As one of 6 investment promotion agencies (IPAs) under MITI, attracting foreign direct investments (FDIs) and domestic direct investments (DDIs) is a big part of what MDEC does in maximising the digital economy’s contribution to the country. Today, the MSC Malaysia footprint has expanded to 42 other locations across the country, playing host to more than 3,800 companies from more than 40 countries, employing more than 150,000 high-income knowledge workers, 85% being Malaysians. Malaysia is ranked top 3 in AT Kearney’s Global Services Location Index since 2005, with only China and India ahead of us.

On the local front, MDEC strives to create a digital ecosystem that promotes innovation and creativity. There is a critical need for local tech companies to enter and compete in the global market. Hence, in line with expanding MSC Malaysia’s globalisation footprint, MDEC is committed to identify and accelerate our local tech champions into global tech icons.

INDUSTRY DEVELOPMENT

Attracting world-class investors is the first step in developing a vibrant digital economy that will raise the Gross National Income (GNI) contribution from tech sectors. As such, MDEC through MSC Malaysia has identified 3 key industry clusters that will shape Malaysia’s IT landscape:

Infotech

Malaysia is a leading Innovative Digital Solutions (Infotech) hub in Asia, which offers competitive cost and world class business infrastructure. The Infotech ecosystem is what makes Malaysia an attractive option for global investors looking to anchor in the ASEAN and APAC regions.

It is the combination of a highly skilled and experienced workforce with a technology-savvy, solutions-driven customer base that makes Malaysia a strategic location for a range of ICT activities with a global and regional focus.

Global Business Services (GBS)

In an increasingly globalised economy, Global Business Services (GBS) offers a powerful strategy for companies seeking economies of scale, streamlined processes, and to remain competitive, having ranked 3rd for another year since its inception on the A.T. Kerney 2016 Global Services Location Index.
