Digital Malaysia is a unique programme based on three strategic thrusts.
It will create an ecosystem that promotes the pervasive use of ICT in all aspects of the economy to connect communities globally and interact in real time resulting in increased Gross National Income, enhanced productivity and an improved standard of living.
The Digital Malaysia programme will leverage on new and existing initiatives to drive Malaysia towards a digital economy. By effectively combining existing ICT and digital initiatives, Digital Malaysia will foster a cohesive digital ecosystem that will ensure Malaysia becomes a developed digital economy.
Digital Malaysia is underpinned by three (3) strategic thrusts that have been identified as critical game changers:
• Move Malaysia from supply to demand focused, i.e. initiating more demand-focused activities to leverage existing infrastructure, economic activity, market trends and consumer behaviour;
• Shift behaviours from consumption to production centric, i.e. encouraging and enabling internet users to produce as much as they consume from digital technologies;
• Evolve from low knowledge-add to high knowledge-add i.e. increasing development of local talent in key industries to become innovators and knowledge workers.
