The Multimedia Development Corporation (MDeC) was incorporated in 1996 to oversee the development of the MSC Malaysia initiative and to advise the Malaysian Government on ICT legislation and policies, as well as to set breakthrough standards for multimedia operations.

Established in the same year, MSC Malaysia’s primary focus was to create an ideal and conducive platform to nurture Malaysian Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in the ICT sector, to become world-class businesses whilst attracting participation from global ICT companies to invest in and develop cutting edge digital and creative solutions in Malaysia. Almost 20 years on, MSC Malaysia has driven the development of the Malaysian ICT industry, enhanced technology adoption, and has made significant strides in increasing the economic impact and footprint of ICT for the nation. This remarkable initiative has positioned Malaysia as a preferred ICT investment hub.

Today, there are over 3,600 MSC Malaysia Status companies, employing over 147,000 people, these include: 436 companies in the Creative Multimedia Cluster, more than 110 Institutions of Higher Learning and Incubators, 2,665 Information Technology companies and over 400 Shared Services & Outsourcing providers.
