In parallel to the Mobile World Congress, the Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDeC), the agency under the Malaysian Ministry of Communications and Digital (KKD), leading the digital transformation of the economy has organized sides events in Barcelona to promote cooperation between Spanish digital companies and Malaysia.
Throughout the day, MDeC has been meeting with a consortium of two Spanish technology firms: MingoThings International, a consulting and intermediary company for technological projects, and Worldsensing, an expert in infrastructure monitoring, to discuss future cooperation on flood monitoring and early prevention system technology transfer.
A forthcoming agreement is expected to be negotiated in the following months.
Mahadir Aziz, MDEC’ CEO commented “A delegation of Malaysian governmental agencies and industry players came to the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona to exchange information and discover more about the city’s technological ecosystem, which leads innovation throughout Europe and the world. MingoThings and Worldsensing are among the companies that enable this innovation, especially in terms of technology for security.”
A future cooperation on technology transfer of flood monitoring and early prevention systems
The purpose of this collaboration is to promote mutual understanding and support in research, training, consultation, technology transfer, investment, and strategic development to develop the system of flood prevention and monitoring of floods in Malaysia. This mutual aid can be concretized through technology transfer programs, staff and faculty exchanges, and data and project exchanges.
A close collaboration between Malaysia and the Spanish and Catalan digital ecosystem
The Malaysian Ministry of Communication & Digital’s aspiration is to firmly establish Malaysia as ‘the Heart of Digital ASEAN’, a regional digital powerhouse launching global champions to lead the fourth industrial revolution. To this end, the Ministry is present at MWC 23 to meet with several Spanish companies and big names in tech.
On February 28th, the MDeC organized a round table with about fifteen companies to discuss making Kuala Lumpur a technology and digital hub in Asia. Among the companies present were many Catalan digital flagships, including MMM, Mediktor, Tech Barcelona, Etra, MingoThings, Worldsensing and some governmental entities as ACCIO.
The day will then end with a networking event bringing together a hundred executives and representatives of technology companies, coming mainly from Malaysia and Spain.
