He said the initiative was specially organised for companies to take stock of the situation and to design strategies to move forward, and MPC and its partners had arranged for internationally renowned speakers and captains of industry to share their knowledge and insights.
In addition he said, the Covid-19 crisis had highlighted the need for a rapid transformation of the Malaysian economy, and accelerating digital empowerment to enrich the lives and livelihoods of Malaysians is the best way forward.
“In the current situation, I would like to urge the business community to look at the challenges they are facing as an opportunity to add value to their business. There is no better time than now to fast-track their digitalisation agenda, across all facets of their businesses.
“The fact is that Covid-19 has jolted us to the reality of how crucial and pervasive digitalisation is and why we need it more than ever to future-proof our businesses,” he said.
“Digitalisation drives productivity and enhances connectivity among working peers, customers and business partners beyond geographical borders and may even help in reducing the carbon footprint.
“It will help us achieve sustainable economic growth while protecting the environment and the well-being of the people,” he added.
