This month is Malaysia’s National ICT month
The National ICT Month 2012 (NIM 2012) which is co-organized by the Association of the Computer and Multimedia Industry of Malaysia (Pikom) and Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation (Mosti) has kicked off.
During NIM 2012, a bunch of programmes such as Leadership Summit 2012, PC Fair, World Cyber Games (WCG) and Digital Lifestyle Expo have been organised to promote local ICT products and services.
According to the Pikom Chairman Woon Tai Hai, the industry is projected to grow by about 9 to 10 per cent this year but talent retention, capability and capacity building, commercialisation impetus, and global economic uncertainty will be the main challenges to the industry.
