KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 15 — The Ministry of Communications and Multimedia (K-KOMM) is focusing on three main aspects in its efforts to make Malaysia an ICT hub, in line with the Malaysian Digital Economy (MyDIGITAL) initiative.
Minister Tan Sri Annuar Musa said the three main aspects are communication infrastructure improvement, attracting digital investment and building manpower and human capital in the digital technology sector.
“To strengthen the connectivity ecosystem, K-KOMM has implemented the National Digital Infrastructure Plan or JENDELA as an effort to expand coverage and improve the quality of broadband services as a whole, through various initiatives and prepare the country for the transition to the 5G technology.
“K-KOMM is also improving the connectivity ecosystem infrastructure under the JENDELA+ plan to support the implementation of MyDIGITAL. JENDELA+ is focused on three elements, namely, international connectivity (IC), internet exchange point (IXP) and data centre (DC),” he said during question and answer session at the Dewan Negara today.
He said this in response to a question from Senator Mohd Apandi Mohamad who wanted to know the steps taken by the Ministry in making Malaysia an ICT hub in Southeast Asia.
