The objectives for digitalization in the Malaysia Digital Economy Blueprint cover a wide scope, ranging from a digitalization guide for companies to reviews on intellectual property (IP) and tax frameworks. Overall, it aims to create digital companies that can succeed globally by promoting a conducive environment for growth in Malaysia.
As businesses were hit hard by the pandemic, the launch of the blueprint now is a step in the right direction, observes Alvin Gan, Head of Technology Consulting at KPMG in Malaysia.
“The key is to get all stakeholders involved in the execution and implementation. Another interesting theme I observed is the fundamental role the private sector is expected to play, considering that many of the initiatives outlined will involve the public and private sectors working together,” says Gan.
