Restructured to meet digital economy challenges (The Star)

Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC) underwent organisational restructuring to reinvent its role as the leader of Malaysia’s digital economy.

MDEC appointed four industry trailblazers to its board of directors and further affirmed its commitment towards delivering more for less at speed, addressing disruption of the new norm and improving its standard of governance.

Recognising that digital transformation and adoption was crucial to capitalise on new opportunities, MDEC said in a statement that it was confident the new leadership structure would enable mass outreach and achieve its vision of Malaysia 5.0 –- a people-first society in the age of 4IR technology.

The reinvented MDEC will introduce four strategic focus areas –- Digital MDEC, Digitally Powered Businesses, Digital Investments and Digitally Skilled Malaysians -– driven by a newly-constituted MDEC operating council comprising five divisions: Strategy; Adoption (Demand); Industry (Supply); Investment and Brand; as well as Skills and Jobs.

MDEC said that implementing the right, lean, new leadership structure was key to executing at speed, expanding mass outreach and creating a measurable socio-economic impact in a digital-first future.

Digital MDEC will prioritise strategic national alignment and the complete digitalisation of all MDEC’s processes and services.
