Communications Content & Infrastructure
The Communications Content and Infrastructure (CCI) sector spans a wide ecosystem, from content generation to networks, services and devices. In 2009, the sector contributed RM22 billion of GNI from telecommunications, TV and broadcasting as well as post and courier.
For Malaysia to transition from a middle-income to high-income economy the continued development of the communications content and infrastructure sector is fundamental. The sector should now build on the infrastructure investments of the past and shift to providing applications and content in order to enable the knowledge-based society.
There are 10 Entry Point Projects (EPPs), and 4 Business Opportunities.
Beyond the EPPs, the CCI sector will grow through the domestic growth of existing companies as well as through Malaysian ownership of foreign companies. Broadly, growth will be pursued along four fronts: fixed service, mobile services, courier, post and broadcast, and regional operations. These business opportunities will provide RM11.7 billion (USD3.3 billion) in incremental GNI and create 17,265 new jobs by 2020.
