About Multimedia Development Corporation(MDeC), MSC Malaysia and Digital Malaysia:
MDeC was incorporated in 1996 to strategically advise the Malaysian Government on legislation, policies and standards for ICT and multimedia operations as well as to oversee the development of the Malaysian Multimedia Super Corridor (now MSC Malaysia). MSC Malaysia became the platform to nurture the growth of Malaysian companies in the IT industry whilst attracting participation from global ICT companies to invest and develop cutting-edge digital and creative solutions in Malaysia.
In 2011, MDeC’s mandate was broadened by the Prime Minister to include driving Malaysia’s transition towards a developed digital economy by 2020 through Digital Malaysia. Founded on three strategic thrusts, Digital Malaysia is a natural progression to harness the building blocks already laid by MSC Malaysia. Digital Malaysia will drive generational change through its three-phase implementation which is set to take place between 2012 to 2020, 2021 to 2030, and 2031 to 2040 respectively.
Malaysia has set itself to be the regional and global hub for the creative content industry in the next four years. To help realise this goal, MDeC is also currently shifting more focus towards the games and digital comics sector as it is one of the fastest growing industries in the world. MDeC intends to grow the revenue derived from the games and digital comics sector which has tremendous potential for growth and can complement the other sectors within the creative multimedia industry.
