KUCHING: Sarawak can no longer be left behind in terms of digital technology adoption and digital economic growth that can very well benefit for her people.

“With all these technologies in mind, my vision is that they are going to shape the ways the industrial sectors will design their services, products and processes and also the evolution of the global economic ecosystems,” Chief Minister said. 

Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg said in his Opening Address and Official Launching of IDECS 2019 themed “Envisioning Sarawak Future Living at Borneo Convention Centre Kuching (BCCK), this morning.

“I believe, with our strategies in hand and with the supports from the whole communities, Sarawak can be on the same par with developed countries in its digital journey,” he said. 

Abang Johari said, either we push ahead in new research areas or we will be always a follower without being able to bring much progress to our people and country.

“I am fully aware of the critics of my vision to bring Sarawak towards Digital Economy,” he said.

“I wish to reiterate that Digital Economy vision is not something that we all can take for granted,” he added.
