Huawei ready to support in building digital and green Malaysia
27 Sep 2023
Huawei is ready to support and leverage its technical capabilities, industry solutions and ecosystem to boost the country’s 5G network, artificial intelligence (AI), and digital energy in building a digitally innovative and green Malaysia.
Huawei Asia Pacific president Simon Lin said as Malaysia pursues its digitalisation and carbon neutrality agendas, Huawei is committed to being the partner every step of the way towards achieving the visions.
“In addition, we will keep contributing to Malaysian society by cultivating local talents,” he said in his summary speech at Malaysia ICT Summit 2023 here today.
He also said that Huawei has been inspired to see that Malaysia is making big strides towards becoming a high-income and truly digital nation by 2030.
“As Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim emphasised during his visit to China, Malaysia is determined to achieve the New Industrial Master Plan 2030 in seven years and to meet this goal, around RM95 billion in investments will be needed.
“These investments will bring incredible returns to Malaysia’s digital economy. By 2025, this sector might contribute more than 25 per cent to the country’s gross domestic product, exceeding RM382.0 billion,” he said.
Lin said digitalisation would support Malaysia in increasing the share of renewable energy in its installed capacity to 31 per cent by 2025 and 40 per cent by 2035, as part of its carbon neutrality 2050 roadmap.
The two-day Malaysia ICT Summit 2023, themed “Digital Malaysia, Green Growth”, aimed to promote ICT innovation and infrastructure development while bringing more opportunities for Malaysia’s sustainable digital economy growth and industrial upgrading.
More than 300 industry professionals, enterprise leaders and ecosystem partners from various segments within the ICT industry attended the summit organised by Huawei Technologies (M) Sdn Bhd.
