Feb 12 – Malaysia has become a critical hub for Intel Corp’s global operations in delivering industry-leading products worldwide, corporate vice-president Robin Martin said.

Martin, who is also managing director of Intel Malaysia, said Intel’s growth in Malaysia has been made possible by the government’s strong partnership, the country’s diverse talent pool, well-established infrastructure, as well as robust supply chains.

“As we know, countries are getting more and more competitive in attracting investors and that is why partnering with the government is crucial for change to happen and to happen rapidly, ” he said in a video interview yesterday.

He said it was important to acknowledge that while 2020 had been a challenging year for all, people have all come to embrace living and working in this new norm, which is preparing them for the future.

“Our ambition and opportunities have never been greater. We stand on the brinks of several technology inflections such as artificial intelligence, 5G, (amid) the rise of the Internet age, that together, will shape the future of technology.”
