ABOUT BUILD ON, MALAYSIA 2019
The Digital Economy refers to the actions taken by both the private and public sector to adopt and utilise digital technologies to communicate with the people, deliver goods and services and meet other core functions to raise productivity, revenue and incomes.
Today, it’s estimated that the Digital Economy is worth USD3 trillion.
Digital is not part of the economy, it is the economy. In Malaysia, the government is targeting a 22% contribution from the Digital Economy to the country’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP).
It is critical that Malaysia takes the lead in key areas such as digital adoption, digital entrepreneurship and innovation. Tech talent will help drive our nation’s Digital Economy forward.
