On 22 April 2009, the ICT services sub-sector was liberalised to encourage foreign participation and further strengthen the competitiveness of the sub-sector.
ICT services play a central role in empowering the digital economic goals of the country. As Malaysia moves to become a developed economy, it needs to position itself not only to adapt, but also to innovate in technology in order to sustain economic growth. Digitalisation has changed the way of doing businesses by capitalising on connectivity and systems integration, and by leveraging on “smart technology” such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), Big Data Analytics, Robotics and Internet of Things (IoT).
Malaysia welcomes digital players to join us in our efforts to build a sustainable ICT ecosystem and digitally connected landscape. With our growing range of capabilities and infrastructure, Malaysia is poised to become a tech powerhouse in the region, driving innovation and productivity to enhance competitiveness and wealth creation.
In 2018, the value of the ICT industry’s contribution to the country’s GDP was RM267.7 billion, of which gross value added of ICT was RM182.4 billion and e-Commerce was RM115.5 billion. ICT GDP is the sum of contributions by various industries such as ICT services, manufacturing, trade, other industries, and content and media.
