Malaysia will send a delegation led by Science, Technology and Innovation Minister Maximus Ongkili to a series of Information & Communications Technology (ICT) seminars in Australia next month to enable corporations in both countries to strengthen their positions in the international market.

Malaysia and Australia should engage in ‘smart partnerships’ and leverage each others’ areas of expertise, The National ICT Association of Malaysia (PIKOM) recommended. Minister Ongkili said the key ingredients for success in the global economy were cross border communication and cooperation. Malaysia could benefit from Australia’s technology, innovation and R&D, while Australia could make the most of Malaysia’s financial expertise, particularly Islamic finance, and its talented workforce.

The “Collaboration Through Cross Border Partnerships To Go Global” seminars will take place in Sydney on 3 August and Melbourne on 5 August.
