“All one needs is a computer, a network connection and a bright spark of initiative and creativity to join the economy” 

- Don Tapscott (Professor & author of Wikinomics & Digital Economy)

As the world is experiencing what they call the 4.0 Industrial Revolution, Sarawak has taken upon itself to transform the State’s economy into a Digital Economy. 2017 has been an exciting year for Sarawak with the State’s initiatives and implementation of digital technology in various sectors & industries. We realize the significance of this shift and support the endeavours as it concerns not only our economy and various industries, but also the development of young adults who will ultimately be the future leaders to contribute to the continual growth of our State.

This issue of Happenings in Sarawak looks at the many avenues and opportunities of the digital era; with experts from numerous background providing insights, each sharing their knowledge and expertise. From the founder of WIT – Web in Travel, Yeoh Siew Hoon providing a prelude to the issue with her article: “Letter from Kuching – Lessons for Small Earthlings in Second Cities”, to ASEAN’s leading payment company iPay88 on E-Commerce, Google Malaysia on online shopping safety, a comprehensive elucidation on the growing coworking culture by iCube Innovation, the Internet of Things by founder of Second Startup – Curry Khoo and more.

With the growing entrepreneurial culture in this time and age, it is critical to equip upcoming entrepreneurs and existing businesses with the world’s trends, up-to-date systems and practices that integrate technology in order to advance not only on a regional level but at a global scale. From having our own cashless payment gateway (Sarawak Pay) to our own multimedia governance (Sarawak Multimedia Authority), we can stand confident that we will be ready. We look towards an abundant new year and we are excited to witness more moments in our history as we progress and innovate into 2018!
