MyDIGITAL to transform Malaysia digitally by 2030
The official launch of the MyDIGITAL – the Malaysia Digital Economy Blueprint by Prime Minister, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin on 19 February 2021 is a correct step towards transforming Malaysia into a high-income nation that is technologically and digitally driven. MyDIGITAL serves as complementary which adopted a whole-of-nation approach to complement the 12th Malaysia Plan (12MP) and the Shared Prosperity Vision (SPV) 2030.
As announced by Tan Sri Muhyiddin, this initiative will chart the growth trajectory of the country’s digital economy development which also aims to empower every Malaysian, from Perlis to Sabah, to improve their lives in all aspects. It will also see citizens beginning to enjoy 5G technology in stages by the end of this year. This is a matter of pride for Malaysia as Malaysia would be the first country in Southeast Asia to build this service ecosystem.
“It includes ideas and plans to improve digital literacy, creates high-income employment opportunities, makes banking and finance business easier and more organised, provides virtual educational access to children in the country and brings medical facilities to remote towns.” said Tan Sri Muhyiddin at the virtual launching ceremony of the blueprint. He also added that MyDigital also serves as a digital transformation direction plan that is able to drive the business sector to compete on the global arena by enhancing expediency and efficiency of their operations.
This initiative is also timely as digital communication and access to the internet has grown increasingly important, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic caused physical encounters to be reduced on a large scale whereby people are compelled to live out the new norms of working from home, having to undertake virtual meetings and classrooms from their respective homes, whilst more and more businesses go online to market their brand and products.
The growing e-commerce market sector will also benefit from the MyDIGITAL initiative, where more opportunities will be generated for each segment of the economy. To date, a total of 335,834 small and medium enterprises (SMEs) have entered the e-commerce market, and those who have not yet done so are urged to take this opportunity to take advantage of MyDIGITAL so as not to be left behind in this digital era.
