Visitors at this year's IT IndoComm will have the opportunity to explore the business investment possibilities available at Cyberjaya, - Malaysia's Silicon Valley - and the gateway to ASEAN's ICT, multimedia and services offerings.

According to Mr. Ir. Hafidz Hashim, Managing Director of Cyberview Sdn. Bhd., this is Cyberview's first participation at IT IndoComm 2012, and we look forward in establishing partnerships with potential investors and introduce our SME tenants' offerings in the international market.
"Being the preferred address for ICT, multimedia and innovation companies in Malaysia and Malaysia's first Multimedia Super Corridor (MSC) international cybercity, Cyberjaya seeks to become the regional growth engine for global innovation, multimedia development, creative content generation, and shared services outsourcing," said En. Ir. Hafidz Hashim.
"Our involvement in the upcoming IT IndoComm 2012 will allow us to showcase business and investment opportunities in our growing ecosystem, supporting services and infrastructure, and we look forward to welcoming more companies into Cyberjaya to set up operations or collaborate with existing companies," he added.
In Cyberjaya, technology-centric SMEs are nurtured under the SME Technopreneur Centre clusters and enjoy the support of Malaysia's Multimedia Development Corporation (MDeC) and Cyberview's own SME Support Centre, both of which provide these technological start-ups with global networking opportunities and business support.
Cyberview is currently home to more than 500 Malaysian and global technology companies including Hewlett Packard (HP), DELL, Fujitsu, Motorola, AMD, DHL, HSBC, Shell, BMW, and Ericsson.
Cyberjaya is the core of Malaysia's Multimedia Super Corridor (MSC Malaysia), a gateway to Asia's booming ICT markets that offers the best of first-world knowledge and infrastructure at developing-nation costs. MSC Malaysia is a designated zone where technology entrepreneurs and global multinationals alike enjoy attractive tax breaks, access to world-class human capital, high-speed internet facilities and proximity to Malaysia's administrative and commerce centres.
As the landowner of Cyberjaya, Cyberview is mandated to spearhead the development of the premier cybercity, provide end-to-end conducive and business friendly ecosystems for businesses and to facilitate both local and international investments to grow, coupled with strong business acumen and results that speak for themselves.
In 2011 Cyberview attracted a total investment value of MYR 3.1 billion (USD 1 billion), representing more than a third of the cybercity's total investment value since its inception. This was also due in part to the successful development of AMD, Shell and HP's regional operations centres, the MSC Malaysia Knowledge Workers Development Institute, SME Technopreneur Centre 3, residential, institutional and enterprise developments.
Apart from its core roles as landowner and development spearhead, Cyberview aspires to strengthen key Malaysian government initiatives towards key economic and development programmes by driving inward local and foreign investment, developing skilled workers and talent, and nurturing creative economies in Malaysia via Cyberjaya's thriving content creation and multimedia industries.
Today, Cyberjaya is a planned cybercity consisting of incubators, enterprise development, burgeoning residential areas, commercial outlets, learning institutions and other public amenities, affirming the transformation of Cyberjaya from a business destination to a full-fledged, comprehensive township meant to nurture and accelerate the growth of its tenants.
IT IndoComm is in its 5th year hosting International Exhibition and Conference on Communications, Digital Media and Information Technology for Indonesia. It will be held in Jakarta Convention Centre from 3 to 5 May 2012. Cyberjaya's Pavillion is located at Booth Number A318.
