The Ministry of Communications and Multimedia Malaysia with the support of the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) invited Brunei Darussalam to attend KL Converge! to showcase our nation’s creative industry on a platform which provides maximum exposure to global content buyers and digital lifestyle businesses.  The opening ceremony today was graced by the presence of the Guest of Honour, Deputy Prime Minister, Yang Amat Berhormat, Tan Sri Dato Hj Muhyiddin bin Hj Mohd Yassin and was followed by a Ministerial tour of the exhibition.

After the opening ceremony and Ministerial tour of the exhibition, Yang Mulia Awg Haji Riza bin Haji Yunos, Deputy Permanent Secretary of Ministry of Communications and officials from the Ministry of Communications was introduced to the showcase participants in the Brunei Darussalam Pavilion by Hj Yahkup bin Hj Menudin, Chief Executive of AITI.
 
The Brunei Darussalam Pavilion organised by the Authority for Info-communications Technology Industry of Brunei Darussalam (AITI) plays host to showcases by Origin Films Sdn Bhd, Regal Blue Productions, Itsybytes Company, Ambuyart Animations and MegaBond Productions together with trade visitors from the Brunei Economic Development Board (BEDB), Kristal Media Sdn Bhd, Progressif Cellular Sdn Bhd, Institut Teknologi Brunei (ITB) and Shazana’s Production House.  This furthers AITI’s mandate of growing the local creative industry through exposure at global platforms.
 
The Ministerial program for KL Converge! also saw the Ministers and Ministerial representatives attending a GSMA Asia Policy Forum this morning themed “A more connected and vibrant mobile ecosystem in Asia”.  The Forum recognised that mobile broadband networks and applications forms the backbone of the internet economy and discussed challenges related to deployment of mobile broadband networks, strategies to creating an open competitive environment as a basis for innovation.  Speakers and panellists at the Forum observed that collaboration between Governments, the private sector and citizens is key to the success of these strategies.
 
KL Converge! is the result of Malaysia’s commitment under the ASEAN ICT Master Plan 2015 where an ASEAN Digital Content Exchange was envisioned to be a key platform to promote and facilitate the exchange of content for ASEAN and other regional players.  KL Converge! is being held from 17-19 September 2014 at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Center (KLCC), Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
