KUALA LUMPUR – May 22, 2018 – SEMICON Southeast Asia,
the region’s premier gathering of the global electronics manufacturing supply
chain, today opened it’s 22-24 May exposition, for the first time in Kuala
Lumpur, showcasing IoT, smart manufacturing, autonomous driving, virtual
reality (VR), and other smart technologies. Themed “Think Smart Make Smart,”
SEMICON Southeast Asia 2018 brings together industry experts from around the
world for critical insights into the semiconductor ecosystem, new business
opportunities and collaboration.

Speaking
at the opening ceremony, Ng Kai Fai,
President of SEMI Southeast Asia said that the show’s debut in Kuala Lumpur
underscores the significance of the Electrical and Electronics (E&E)
segment’s economic contribution to Malaysia. The show’s debut in Kuala Lumpur endeavours to bridge Malaysia’s three
(3) important electronics clusters while at the same time, serve as a central
connection point to the rest of Southeast Asia’s electronics manufacturing
supply chain. “With the rapid proliferation of digital technology across a
multitude of applications market namely; Industrial IoT, Communications, Data
Processing, Automotive and Consumer Electronics, Southeast Asia electronics
manufacturing especially Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam and Philippines
will continue to expand the semiconductor market share and growth.”

Being a partner to SEMI for SEMICON Southeast Asia
2018 for the 4th year in a row, the CEO of the Malaysian Investment Development Authority (MIDA), Dato’
Azman Mahmud said, “The E&E industry has always been a primary engine
of growth due to its strong inter-linkages to other sub-sectors. Through
platforms like SEMICON, we seek to continuously foster a resilient and robust
E&E manufacturing supply chain in Southeast Asia. Having a strong
industrial base, Malaysia is moving towards becoming a state-of-the-art
manufacturing center that is capable of providing total supply chain solutions.
We want to become a regional hub for design and development, high value
products and activities, and ultimately, the leading location of choice for FDI
and growth of local industry.”

SEMICON Southeast Asia 2018 is expected to draw more
than 8,000 visitors, an all-time event record, to the new Malaysia
International Trade & Exhibition Centre (MITEC). The three-day event
features three themed pavilions, four global pavilions, and inspiring keynote
presentations and a host of technology forums to address key issues in the
electronics manufacturing supply chain.

The World of IoT pavilion highlights SEMICON Southeast
Asia 2018 with applications and technologies enabling the IoT revolution. This
interactive experience features semiconductor innovations powering autonomous driving,
smart AI devices, VR and other leading-edge technologies. Start-ups demonstrating
pioneering and disruptive products and applications also highlight the
pavilion. Two other themed pavilions focus on Smart Manufacturing and Future
Electronics Manufacturing Services (EMS).

To address the critical industry shortage of skilled
workers, the SEMICON Southeast Asia University Program and Electronics Talent
Career Fair bring together some of the world’s most influential companies
including Applied Materials, Intel, LAM
Research and Globalfoundries with potential workers for new employment
opportunities.

SEMICON Southeast Asia highlights also include the
popular Supplier Search Programme, business-matching sessions, industry VIP
networking, and the Southeast Asia Investment Forum (SAIF). This year SAIF hosts
Malaysia and Vietnam as they share roadmaps and explore collaborative investments
in the global supply chain.
