Kuala Lumpur, 19th May, 2015: Several government and industry experts and new announcements to accelerate Malaysia’s Smart Country initiative formed part of the opening ceremony of the second Huawei ICT Roadshow at a city hotel this morning.


The Roadshow, a platform by Huawei for industry experts to exchange ideas and discuss the positive impacts of connectivity on Malaysia, was inaugurated by Communications and Multimedia Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Shabery Cheek. Also in attendance was Mr. Wu Zhengping, the Economic and Commercial Counselor at the Embassy of People’s Republic China in Malaysia.


As the Guest of Honor, Datuk Seri Ahmad Shabery Cheek opened the keynotes where he put forward his vision for Malaysia to transform into a Smart Country. He said, “I am delighted to be among the nation’s ICT experts and policy makers at the Huawei’s ICT Roadshow 2015.

By building on Smart Economy, Smart Environment, Smart Governance, Smart Mobility, Smart Living and Smart People, we are already infusing ICT into all spheres of the society, and in doing so, accelerating Malaysia towards a developed and modern country and enriching the lives of the rakyat.


He added, “As a global ICT leader, Huawei has the technology know-how and experience in the development of smart country initiatives. I hope that in the near future, more experts from across the ecosystem join the partnership we have formed with Huawei to jointly build a Smart Country. Let’s work together towards a common vision, and overcome challenges we face along the way. In that aspect, we welcome constructive dialogue with industry players, agencies and technology partners.”


Huawei Malaysia CEO Mr Abraham Liu said in his keynote that with its strong focus on digital inclusion, Malaysia has the potential to be a bellwether in sustainable Smart Country initiatives in the ASEAN region. He said, “Digital connectivity and inclusion across urban and rural centers, genders, and economic strata enables countries to attract investment by providing access to skill development and employment opportunities and promoting sustainability. Innovative ICT infrastructure is fundamental to the digital restructuring of industries and the long-term development of a Better Connected Smart Country. I want to take this opportunity to announce that Huawei is committed to partner in Malaysia’s endeavor to be a Better Connected, Smart Country.”

As Malaysia gears up towards its Smart Country vision, it has vast potential to leverage technology for public services and safety of its citizens. Today’s launch is a first among many pillars of our commitment to bring world class connectivity and technology to empower Malaysians.”
