The Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC), Malaysia’s lead agency in digital economy, and Malaysia Digital Association (MDA) today announced an agreement to foster collaborations through corporate innovation, mentorship, and accelerator programmes to raise awareness on initiatives set to benefit the digital economy ecosystem.
As part of the agreement, both MDEC and MDA are set to organise a speaking engagement series called Digital Wednesday, on a quarterly basis. The sessions will feature prominent industry speakers and experts as well as MDEC’s leadership team who will share insights and the latest on talent development, digital investments and plans to further contribute to grow Malaysia’s digital economy ecosystem.
“We are optimistic that the partnership will create more opportunities for not just the members but also non-members, thereby advancing an inclusive digital economy in line with the Malaysia Digital Economy Blueprint (MyDIGITAL) and Shared Prosperity Vision 2030,” said Raymond Siva, Senior Vice President, Investment and Brand and Chief Marketing Officer, MDEC.
The collaboration will kick off this month with MDEC’s involvement in MDA’s signature industry learning platform, MDA School, which provides joint certification programmes, among others. This initiative will be the first of many programmes held by both organisations for the industry, which include Digital Wednesday – MDA’s quarterly industry networking, sharing and learning event.
And, for the first time, MDEC will be involved in MDA’s Awards 2022, an annual event that recognises and honours the talents, agencies, brands, publishers, and digital service providers that embrace and use digital technologies.
