Malaysia’s 2020 National Budget themed “Driving Growth and Equitable Outcomes towards Shared Prosperity” focuses on strengthening the country’s digital infrastructure, building a more inclusive society, and empowering the youth.  One of the country’s agenda is to strengthen the Digital Economy with efforts to improve the physical and digital infrastructure, at the same time encouraging digital adoption and upskilling among local enterprises.

Endorsed by the Malaysian Industry-Government Group for High Technology (MiGHT) and themed “Enhancing ROI of Enterprise Technology Investments”, this is the 36th edition of the Asia IoT Business Platform series and the 7th year it is being hosted in Malaysia. The sessions will bring together enterprises from public and private sectors to explore the possibility of adopting digital solutions to build smarter cities and efficient business. Over 400 senior stakeholders from government, telecommunications, manufacturing, logistics, transportation, healthcare, banking and financial services will be present to discuss the challenges and opportunities presented by technology.  

Key focus topics includes:

- National Policy on Industry 4.0
To boost Malaysia’s manufacturing sector, the National Industry 4.0 Framework, named Industry4WRD, was put in place in October 2018, to provide a concerted and comprehensive transformation agenda. The plan includes policies to support industry's efforts to rely more on technology and less on capital and labor to increase productivity. Industry4WRD aims to increase labor productivity by 30%, achieve RM392B (US$93.9B) contribution to GDP by the manufacturing sector and 35% high-skilled workers in the manufacturing sector by 2025. 

5G Roll Out 
The RM21.6B National Fiberisation and Connectivity Plan (NFCP) is a 5 year plan running from 2019 – 2023. NFCP's main targets include the provision of an average speed of 30 Mbps in 98% of populated areas and gigabits availability in selected industrial areas by the year 2020 and all state capitals by 2023.  RM210 million has been allocated to accelerate the deployment of new digital infrastructure for public buildings, especially schools, as well as high impact areas such as industrial parks. 

Smart City Initiatives
The Malaysia Smart City Framework was launched as a guideline for local governments all across the country to take progressive steps to upgrade connectivity, infrastructure and effectiveness of communication with the people. Five pilot cities will undergo projects to be upgraded into smart cities, and they are Kulim, Kuala Lumpur, Johor Bahru, Kota Kinabalu and Kuching.
