MIDF Automation & Digital Forum in Johor Bahru
MIDF’s Development Finance Business (DFB), together with Bizphere Sdn. Bhd successfully organized the Southern Region edition of the MIDF Automation & Digital Forum, the third of the series, on 22 August 2023 at The Trove Hotel in Johor Bahru. The keynote address was delivered by YB Chin Tong Liew, the Deputy Minister of Investment, Trade and Industry (MITI) via video recording.
Over 200 participants, including representatives from Government ministries and agencies, trade associations as well as from the manufacturing and services sectors attended the Forum which was packed with exciting panel discussions on topics relating to the journey towards IR4.0 and solution showcases by reputable technology providers and other IT4.0 ecosystem enablers.
The Forum also featured exhibition booths that displayed a range of products and services offerings from MIDF, MBSB, technology companies such as FBSM, AFA Group and Smrt Solutions, in addition to the participation of SHRDF, Smart4wd, SJPP, MTDC and other MITI agencies.
The MIDF Automation & Digital Forum aims to bring together industry leaders, entrepreneurs, policy makers and experts to discuss and showcase the latest trends, technologies and strategies in moving towards IR4.0. The Southern Region forum was a significant event that built upon the success of the initial MIDF Automation & Digital Forum which was launched by YB Senator Tengku Datuk Seri Utama Zafrul, Minister of Investment, Trade and Industry on 1 March 2023 in Kuala Lumpur followed by the Northern Region edition of the Forum which was held in Pulau Pinang on 9 June 2023. This series of Forums serves as a continuation of the Government’s commitment to advancing automation and digitalization in Malaysia.
MIDF would like to thank the participating moderators and panelists as well as our generous sponsors FBSM, Selangor Human Resource Development Centre, SmartB Solutions and AFA Group.
DFB will be organizing 3 more Automation & Digital Forums as part of the series this year as well as promotional events to promote the Malaysia Smart Manufacturing Award 2023.
