MyDigital to transform Malaysia digitally by 2030

Malaysia announced a new initiative MyDigital to promote economic development in the country. MyDigital, which is in line with the Malaysia Digital Economy Blueprint, is envisaged to create 500,000 new job opportunities in the digital economy, which is expected to contribute 22.6% of Malaysia’s gross domestic product (GDP) by 2030. This will further support the Malaysian government’s plan to improve the productivity of the economic sector by 30% by 2030. ‘MyDigital will empower Malaysians from Perlis to Sabah, improving their lives in every aspect. It encompasses ideas and plans to increase digital literacy, creating high-income jobs, improving banking and finances, gaining better digital access to education and medical services in rural towns,’ noted Malaysia Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin.
