Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia – In a concerted effort to elevate training opportunities and bolster digital competitiveness, the Malaysian government has recently entered into a memorandum of understanding with the global technology giant, Google.

This collaborative initiative provides businesses of diverse scales with the opportunity to enhance their technological capabilities through the implementation of upskilling programs, investments in digital infrastructure, responsible innovation in artificial intelligence (AI), and the adoption of cloud-first policies.

Notably, this collaboration facilitates access to a variety of digital learning paths, including Google Cloud, CloudMile, and Trainocate. Individuals who successfully complete these learning paths will be awarded digital skills badges, enhancing their resumes, and will enjoy an extended 30-day access to additional learning paths.

Malaysian Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim said, “This latest commitment by Google, aimed at accelerating local innovation and talent development in the field of AI, will certainly boost the nation’s digital competitiveness, in line with the Madani Economy framework and the New Industrial Master Plan 2030 (NIMP 2030).”

He added, “The Madani Economy framework aims to increase the size of Malaysia’s economic pie, as well as ensure that all stakeholders – particularly the Malaysian public and small businesses – will enjoy the ensuing socio-economic benefits.”

Meanwhile, Ruth Porat, chief financial officer for Alphabet and Google commented, “The partnership we are announcing with the government of Malaysia aligns Google’s local mission of advancing Malaysia together with the government’s goal to create a supportive ecosystem for innovation that includes more meaningful and equitable job opportunities.”

In 2022, the company’s products and programmes supported over 47,900 jobs and also contributed, directly and indirectly, an estimated US$2.8b in economic benefits to local businesses.
