CYBERVIEW Sdn Bhd made its presence felt at the recent World Congress in Information Technology (WCIT) 2010 in Amsterdam with a strong showcase featuring Cyberjaya as MSC Malaysia’s international hub and the choice location of multinational information and communications technology (ICT) investors.

As the landowner and entity mandated to spearhead the growth in Cyberjaya, Cyberview was part of a 20-strong delegation which was led by the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation (MOSTI) and included partners such as the Multimedia Development Corp (MDeC).

Cyberview’s participation in WCIT 2010 was a testament to the strategic role it plays in the development of ICT in Malaysia since Cyberjaya’s inception as ‘Malaysia’s Silicon Valley’ and the core of MSC Malaysia, the company said in a statement.

“Cyberview is committed to growing Cyberjaya as the preferred centre for ICT, multimedia and services, which has long supported various government administrations’ recognition of ICT, multimedia and innovation as the key for Malaysia’s economic growth.

“Over 500 local and multinational companies have chosen Cyberjaya as their preferred business, outsourcing service and solutions development location including globally-recognised names like DHL, Fujitsu, KPMG, Motorola, HSBC, Nokia, DELL, Shell, BMW, AMD and Ericsson,” said Cyberview managing director Hafidz Hashim.

He said the talent and innovation that comes out of Cyberview’s nurturing are excellent examples of the knowledge economy currently flourishing within the Cyberjaya ecosystem, which features state-of-the-art commercial, residential, business and institutional developments

built on a sound technological, logistical and business support infrastructure – perfect for investors and potential tenants alike.

Malaysian delegation leader, Minister of Science, Technology and Innovation Datuk Seri Dr Maximus Johnity Ongkili, delivered a keynote address entitled “Transformation of a Nation”, outlining the role innovation played in Malaysia’s development as it moves away from a middleincome economy dependent on a manufacturing base to a high-tech innovation-driven one.

“The address outlined the government’s New Economic Model (NEM) and the importance of innovation in developing Malaysia as a high-income nation.

Cyberview’s operations are coherent with the NEM by encouraging the formation of company clusters, and the ‘multiplier effect’ that comes from the coexistence of local and global SMEs and MNCs accelerates industry growth in Cyberjaya,” said Hafidz.

He added Cyberview provides not just the framework, but a supporting infrastructure that includes cuttingedge amenities such as district cooling systems to emergency service-linked CCTV, to incubation resources, networking support and the country’s first free-to-air internet-protocol TV (IPTV) channel –

“With added incentives, Cyberjaya has been growing and gearing knowledgebased companies for international markets from the beginning,” he said.

The Malaysian pavilion at WCIT 2010 showcased Malaysia as a choice investment location with displays on the MSC Malaysia initiatives, electronic government, creative content development, and Cyberjaya, the heart of MSC Malaysia.

The Malaysian delegation was also involved in government-to-government discussions and business meetings with key European companies to promote MSC Malaysia and to explore the possibility of new foreign investments in the national ICT initiative, with the signing of several memoranda of understanding with ICT industry partners.
