Good news for folks in Cyberjaya, MSC is making an active comeback! That’s according to our new Prime Minister and the man behind MSC, Datuk Seri Dr Mahathir.
Tun M spoke about reviving MSC as it has deviated from its initial objective at the American Malaysian Chamber of Commerce luncheon on 28th June 2018.
One particular point he mentioned that stands out is that “Cyberjaya was created to concentrate on high technology, electronic and information technology industries, but now, it has become just another town with the usual housing development”.

Tun M mentioned that with the policy on the MSC being realigned back to it’s initial objectives, he expects more companies to invest their facilities and research laboratories in Cyberjaya. And that’s more job opportunities for the folks in Cyberjaya!
And this will enable the Multimedia Super Corridor (MSC) to live up to its name once again. According to Tun M, more infrastructure will be introduced to attract people once more to Cyberjaya.
According to Tun M, currently not all buildings in Cyberjaya are MSC certified but he would like to grant a full MSC status for the whole the city. And this means, all buildings in Cyberjaya are able to enjoy the MSC Bill of Guarantees as long as they are located within Cyberjaya.
While Tun M’s intention will no doubt attract more high tech companies back to Cyberjaya, we must not ignore the fact that Cyberjaya will also need to continue attracting more families to build their homes there. Master developer Setia Haruman, Cyberview and other property developers are working hard to ensure this is realised.
“This will enable the corridor to live up to its name once again. We will put in as much infrastructure as possible to attract people once more to Cyberjaya in particular and into the corridor”
Cyberjaya is already home to about 50 global tech companies and 400 startups. It’s extremely crucial for government-owned companies such as MDEC, Cyberview and MaGIC to build a stronger ecosystem in Cyberjaya to attract more tech companies to open their offices here.
