Perspectives on Malaysia's Open Data journey: Open Data Institute interview

AvantiKumar | May 11, 2015
In an interview in two parts, UK Open Data Institute's Richard Stirling and Malaysia's national ICT agency MDeC's Dr Karl Ng discuss the challenges and opportunities of adopting an Open Data initiative.

We would expect to see more Malaysian businesses using and publishing open data, not just from the technology sector, but from a range of industries. We'd like to see these companies developing new solutions to established problems, bringing economic, social and environmental benefits to Malaysian citizens.

We also expect the see the Government increasing the volume of high quality open data available, boosting transparency, informing smart city development and building a stronger democracy.

I fully expect to be talking to you again in 12 months' time about the great success stories that are emerging from the Malaysia Open Data programme!
