Malaysia is moving forward through many initiatives, some by the government and some through the corporate sector, in its drive to be a digital HUB within ASEAN. And there are a number of local and regional innovations driving Malaysia in this direction. Telecommunications is one of those areas driving development.
In a discussion with TIME, a Malaysian telecommunications provider with businesses spanning Fixed Line, Data Centres and Global Networks, here is what their team had to say.
I first asked how they saw the current data centre market and where it is heading in Malaysia compared to other ASEAN countries.
According to TIME, Malaysia is gaining traction from global players, especially content providers. With the new government, committed to transparency in both the public and private sectors, Malaysia will once again be recognised as a business friendly country.
They went on to say that there are several other factors that will help global players make the decision to move to Malaysia:
• Malaysia is a politically stable country in a safe geographic zone.
• Malaysia has a pool of tech talent that is multi-lingual.
• Malaysia has a conducive business environment supported by a Government that is pushing for digital transformation.
