Jaya33 Cybercentre awarded MSC status
KUALA LUMPUR: Jaya33 Cybercentre has become the first mixed commercial building in Section 13, the new Golden Triangle of Petaling Jaya, to be awarded the Multimedia Super Corridor (MSC) Malaysia Cybercentre status by the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation.
"Our MSC-status certified tenants at Jaya33 Cybercentre can now have access to incentives under the MSC Bill of Guarantees including freedom of ownership, unrestricted employment of knowledge workers and no income tax or investment tax allowance for up to 10 years," Jaya33 Sdn Bhd managing director Che King Tow said in a statement.
The MSC Malaysia Cybercentre status is a prestigious award given to niche business locations that meet the MSC Malaysia standards and criteria to deliver the MSC Malaysia Bill of Guarantees to MSC Malaysia status companies.
Jaya33 Sdn Bhd's appointment as the MSC Malaysia Cybercentre manager for its tower one, two and three, was also formalised at the document exchange ceremony between the Multimedia Development Corporation (MDeC) and Jaya33here yesterday.
Che said Jaya33 Cybercentre would be an alternative and attractive choice for companies wishing to be located in Petaling Jaya to enjoy the benefits that come with being MSC-status certified.
Meanwhile, MDeC chief executive officer Datuk Badlisham Ghazali said Jaya33 Cybercentre's status as an MSC Malaysia Cybercentre is another step towards transforming Klang Valley into a globally competitive location that is favoured by knowledge-based industries and attractive to global citizens.
"With the inclusion of Jaya33 Cybercentre, there are now 26 MSC Malaysia Cybercities and Cybercentres nationwide to cater to the growing demand of our information and communications technology (ICT) industry," Badlisham said.
Today, MSC Malaysia is home to more than 3,000 local and multinational MSC Malaysia status companies involved in various ICT clusters, namely infotech, shared services and outsourcing and creative multimedia.
Currently, Electrolux Home Appliances Sdn Bhd is the first tenant at Jaya33 Cybercentre to be awarded the MSC-status for its global shared service centre.
