Can MDEC Help Mak Cik Kiah While Growing Unicorns?

Surina Shukri, Chief Executive Officer, Malaysian Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC)

Can MDEC Help Mak Cik Kiah While Growing Unicorns?

In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, necessity became the mother of digitisation, with Microsoft saying it saw “two years’ worth of digital transformation in two months”.

With this in mind, how will MDEC balance the need to support the micro SMEs and Mak Cik Kiahs, while also growing and nurturing Malaysian tech startups and potential unicorns that will drive innovation?

Surina also gets into unemployment, attracting FDI and competing with Singapore.
