The policy to empower digital economy is being formulated and is expected to be announced in the third quarter of this year, says Communications and Multimedia Minister Gobind Singh Deo.
At present, he said the ministry was still in discussions with the Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC) to collect their input on the proposed implementation of the policy.
"We are in discussions with the MDEC and we have set up a think tank comprising those in the industry as we want their input and opinion before the policy is formulated," he said after attending PJ Startup Festival 2019 at the MBPJ Civic Hall here Saturday (Feb 23).
Earlier in his opening speech, Gobind said Malaysians were already one of the most digitally connected societies in the world, and roughly 80% of the people have access to the Internet, mainly through mobile networks.
