Effective 11 April 2016, the Multimedia Development Corporation (MDEC) is now known as Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC). The name change coincides with the company’s 20th year anniversary and drew inspiration from our increasing focus on growing the national digital economy contribution to Malaysia’s total gross domestic product (GDP).
The new name was introduced during the announcement of the MSC 2015 Performance Results held at a special event in Kuala Lumpur. We are pleased to advise that this change of name does not affect or alter the relationships that we had built over the years and we would like to take this opportunity to thank all our stakeholders, industry partners and the general public for their continuous support.
We look forward to a greater cooperation among all our stakeholders to drive mutual benefit, as we strive towards building a robust and mature digital economy and transforming Malaysia into a high-income nation.
