The Malaysian government is pushing for more SMEs (small and medium enterprises) to go digital and global.

Recently, we attended a Digital Seminar organized by MaGIC (Malaysian Global Innovation & Creativity Centre), located in Cyberjaya. MaGIC was launched on the 27th of April 2014 by former American President Barack Obama with YAB Prime Minister Najib Razak. MaGIC aims to build a sustainable entrepreneurship ecosystem for Malaysian entrepreneurs and to act as an incitement for creativity and innovation for the nation. Thus far, MaGIC has provided many platforms for discussions, conferences and events that allow for generating ideas and capacity-building initiatives.
