Digital Investment Office (DIO)

The Game Changer in Digital Investments

The Digital Investment Office (DIO) is a collaborative platform between the Malaysian Investment Development Authority (MIDA) and Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC) to coordinate and facilitate all digital investments (foreign and local) into the country.

Aimed at strengthening the coordination among all Investment Promotion Agencies (IPAs), the DIO offers an agile incentives regime with optimised solutioning to meet investor needs including the Malaysia Digital initiative, Digital Ecosystem Acceleration Scheme, and bespoke solutions based on location.

The DIO also offers talent facilitation including upskilling and reskilling subsidy programmes and structured freelancer and digital nomad communities.

The DIO is guided by four pillars under the collaborative platform:

Endorsed by the National Council of Digital Economy and Fourth Industrial Revolution (MED4IR) as the single window for digital investments into the country, the DIO is aligned to the goals of Malaysia Digital Economy Blueprint (MyDIGITAL) and the National Investment Aspirations.
The DIO will play a vital role to address the needs of investors and innovators in an increasingly complex and inter-connected digital economy and firmly establish Malaysia as the digital hub of ASEAN.
