MIDA successfully organised the i-Incentive Seminar at MIDA headquarters on 2 October 2019. The event was held to encourage more participants to embark on technology adoption by familiarising themselves with technology-related incentives that are available in the i-Incentive portal.
This portal, launched last year, aims to simplify the interactions among the relevant incentives provider towards better management of information. This interactive site currently features 126 incentives, including tax exemptions, grants, soft loans and equity financing, is managed by 13 ministries and 29 agencies. “We now have over 2,000 registered users of this portal, and we definitely want to increase the number. We are intensifying our promotional efforts and reaching out to more businesses out there,” said Mr Ahmad Khairuddin Abdul Rahim, Senior Executive Director of MIDA at the i-Incentives Seminar on Technology titled Search. Submit. Succeed’.
The Seminar featured a demo briefing on iIncentives portal, presentations on technologyrelated incentives by MIDA and participating ministries and agencies from Ministry of Energy, Science, Technology, Environment and Climate Change (MESTECC), Malaysian Green Technology Corporation (MGTC), Agensi Inovasi Malaysia (AIM) and Bank Pembangunan Malaysia Berhad (BPMB), followed by a business clinic session.
Moving forward, the i-incentives Seminar is expected to be conducted in a series tackling different scope and theme. Government agencies offering incentives are encouraged to take full advantage of ICCO’s platform and start making their incentives available for access under a single portal at http://incentives.mida.gov.my
