Digital content cooperation with Korea to drive Malaysia to an advanced economy

- ASEAN-Korea Centre to organize the Workshop for Malaysian MSMEs in Digital Content Industry(13 February, Kuala Lumpur) -


Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia - The ASEAN-Korea Centre (Secretary General Kim Young-sun) will organize the Trade Facilitation Workshop for Malaysian MSMEs on Digital Content Industry” on 13 February at Hilton Hotel, Kuala Lumpur. The Workshop will be held in cooperation with the Malaysia External Trade Development Corporation (MATRADE) and the Malaysia Digital Economic Corporation (MDEC), and offer opportunities for the Korean experts and Malaysian MSMEs to share knowledge and good practices as well as build business networks for future collaborations.

 

Kim Young-sun, Secretary General of the ASEAN-Korea Centre noted that, “Digital content, when combined with digital technologies in Industry 4.0 era such as Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence (AI), can create enormous added-values, in turn becoming a driver force to lead new market and industry. Game industry of Malaysia ranked the 3rd largest market among ASEAN countries in 2017, and is expanding its presence in the region through the large-scale game events like ‘Level Up KL.’ With the high demands for Korean contents amid booming Hallyu, or Korean Wave, across the country, Malaysian MSMEs have sought a greater cooperation with their Korean counterparts who have technology and expertise in the relevant fields. I hope this Workshop would provide a platform to facilitate collaborations between digital contents industries of the two countries, thus to enhance a mutually beneficial partnership.”

 

The Korean delegation is composed of businessmen from game and animation industries, as well as an expert from the government-run agency for creative economy and innovation. At the Workshop, Korean delegates will give presentations on the topics of ‘Korean Game Industry and Introducing Support Programs for Overseas Game Startups’, ‘Korean Game Startup’s Ecosystem and Korean Market Access Strategy for Overseas Startups’, ‘Mobile Game Trend in Korea and Korean Market Access Strategy’, ‘VR Game Trend in Korea and Korean Market Access Strategy’, ‘Cases on Business Cooperation in Animation Industry between Malaysia and Korea, and Future Direction of Developing Strategy.’ About 80 representatives from the local MSMEs are expected to attend the event, and have business meetings with the Korean businessmen.

 

Prior to the Workshop, the Korean delegation will receive a briefing on Malaysia’s content industry with a focus on industries of game, animation, and character by the MDEC, a government-owned agency launched in 1996 to lead the transformation of Malaysia’s digital economy. Also, they will visit local companies, MONSTA SDN BHD – an animation content developer – and Streamline Studios – a game development and art outsourcing company – to build business networks and explore possible collaborations.
