About Malaysia Virtual Trade Mission: Tech Rising Star in Southeast Asia

The Department for International Trade (DIT) has partnered with the British Malaysian Chamber of Commerce (BMCC) to invite Northern Powerhouse companies to join this free webinar introducing Malaysia and providing information on the upcoming virtual trade mission focusing on technology sector within this exciting market.

Why Attend?

Strategically located in the heart of South East Asia, Malaysia is a preferred gateway for companies when it comes to accessing other markets in ASEAN.

The Government’s focus on digital infrastructure and transformation, favourable tax incentives, ease of doing business and continued efforts for a supportive ecosystem for market entry, creates vast opportunities for global players in the tech sector.

According to a report by the Ministry of Finance, Malaysia’s digital economy grew by 18.5% year-on-year from 2015 to 2019 (Malaysia Economic Outlook 2021, MOF). The recent launch of MYDigital Blueprint (2021) further cements the Government’s commitment to digitalise the public and private sectors through initiatives in smart cities, education, financial services,  cybersecurity, e-commerce, data sharing, smart manufacturing, green tech and emerging technologies.

Join this free webinar at 09:00am on 11 May 2021 to gain a sound understanding of the high growth technology sectors within Malaysia and wider ASEAN region and to learn more about the NPH virtual mission in July.


The webinar is open to companies from the Northern Powerhouse region. UK businesses interested in the Malaysian market are invited to participate.
