The selection of Malaysia as our Client’s location to centralize its operations is attributed to its ability to support both a sustainable and low-cost structure. The multifactorial decision was made on the foundations of encouraging advisory by the Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC) – Malaysia’s lead digital economy driver. In addition, critical factors included: our Client’s established Kuala Lumpur-based development centres, and a readily available skilled workforce which elevated the confidence of our Client in realizing its GSSC ambitions in Malaysia. This initiative, a tangible extension to our Client’s expanding ASEAN footprint, was a continuation of the build-out and consolidation of its GSSC infrastructure. The combination of factors including the need for operational standardisation and room for scalability addressed our Client’s concerns. In addition, Malaysia, a specialist centre for the know-how of the setup of GSSCs with well-equipped technology and infrastructure, met our Client’s needs. These collective elements culminated in the strategic establishment of its GSSC in Cyberjaya – Malaysia’s Multimedia Super Corridor, the nation’s aspiring Silicon Valley.
Besides being at the heart of the MSC, other considerations when selecting Cyberjaya included the relatively economical floor space to real estate price ratio when compared with the central business district of Kuala Lumpur.
