Multimedia Super Corridor MSC Malaysia
Multimedia Super Corridor MSC Malaysia

 

The Multimedia Super Corridor (MSC) is Malaysia’s most exciting initiative for the global information and communication technology (ICT) industry.

Conceptualized in 1996, the MSC has since grown into a thriving dynamic ICT hub, hosting more than 900 multinationals, foreign-owned and home-grown Malaysian companies focused on multimedia and communications products, solutions, services and; research and development.

 


With this unique corridor, Malaysia continues to attract leading ICT companies of the world to locate their industries in the MSC and undertake research, develop new products and technologies and export from this base. The MSC is also an ideal growth environment for Malaysian ICT SMEs to transform themselves into world-class companies. Furthermore, the MSC welcomes countries to use its highly advanced infrastructural facilities as a global testbed for ICT applications and a hub for their regional operations in Asia.

The Malaysian government has equipped core areas in the MSC with high-capacity global telecommunications and logistics networks. Emphasis has been placed on eco-friendly, yet sophisticated urban structures for businesses, homes, education and recreation. The MSC is also supported by secure cyberlaws, strategic policies; and a range of financial and non-financial incentives for investors.

Many innovative flagship applications have been developed in the MSC top accelerate its growth. They are focused on the development of Smart Schools, Telehealth, e-Business, smart card technology, electronic government, technopreneurship.

A brand new initiative of the MSC is the Creative Multimedia cluster, which aims to catalyse the development of the Malaysian creative content industry in Malaysia, engaging the participation of global producers. Furthermore, Cyberjaya is finding its niche as a regional outsourcing and shared services haven for international companies.

"In 1996, there were less than 300 IT companies but today we have over 3,400, out of which 1,447 are MSC status companies. In 2005, Malaysia’s ICT sector grew by 17% greater than the country’s overall GDP growth of 5.2%. In 2004, MSC status companies attained revenue of RM7.21 billion. Out of this, export of ICT products and services amounted to RM1.57 billion."

As highlighted by various reports such as AT Kearney 2004 and the Deloitte Paper 2005, MSC is one of the many factors that make Malaysia more attractive to foreign investors. Cyberjaya, a city created out a palm oil estate, is now a leading intelligent city known throughout the world.

Your gateway to the MSC is the Multimedia Development Corporation (MDeC), a high-powered ‘one-stop agency’, focusing on ensuring the success of the MSC and the companies operating in it.
