The World Economic Forum (WEF) and Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC) yesterday announced a collaboration to co-design and pilot policy principles and regulatory frameworks to accelerate the societal benefits and mitigate risks from Drone Technology.
MDEC will work specifically with the WEF’s Aerospace and Drones portfolio to realise the objectives of this collaboration.
“The focus of MDEC’s engagement with the WEF will be working with Malaysian authorities to develop a policy framework that allows for drone delivery and a potential launch of the first drone delivery service in Southeast Asia. The goal is to create a regulation that can serve as a model for the region and beyond. This partnership firmly establishes Malaysia as the Heart of Digital ASEAN,” stressed Surina Shukri, Chief Executive Officer of MDEC.
