As Malaysia thrust forward from a developing nation into a developed nation status by 2020, emphasis has been channelled towards the enrichment of technology based economic model.
For this, we saw the formation of Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation Sdn Bhd (MDEC) to drive the nation’s digital economy, MIMOS Berhad the driver of innovation in research and development and Malaysia Global Innovation & Creativity Centre (MaGIC) to catalyse the technology start-up and incubation scene.

Technology has given a new soul to the creative industry so much so that we saw the rise of new age entrepreneurs whose aspirations grow on the back of technology application. For example, we now see a double digit growth in e-commerce sector. We have interactive content produced for global consumption.
We have also embraced new methods such as 3D printing, digitalisation of visual arts, music and many more, contributing 1.24% of Gross Domestic Product in 2008 to 1.6% in 2014, thanks to the new ways of making business via technology advancement (Source: MDeC, DNA, Malay Mail).
