NEF PresidentDear Friends and Fellow Technopreneurs,

It has been more than 10 years since NEF was formed in the early days of ICT development in the country. We have played many significant roles in facilitating the industry’s evolution to what it is today. It is indeed very encouraging to see how far we have achieved in enhancing the industry ecosystem. But as always, the work does not stop there. There are still continuous improvements that can be done and needs to be done to ensure the growth of technopreneurs.

In order to ensure that the continuous improvements happen, I would like to seek for more participation as NEF member or even as a Corporate Partner, in order to ensure a better ICT ecosystem for all of us.

After celebrating the country’s 50th year of independence, I see NEF playing a major role in forming the next 50 years of Malaysia from the perspective of ICT development. This can only happen if we all put our efforts together – efficient change can only happen with the power of the group and not the individual. There are lots of new exciting initiatives that we have planned for this year for the benefit of all members, so come on and join us! One of the highlights is the Bumiputera Technopreneur Directory 2008, which is supported by EPU. So don’t be left out and make sure you are in the directory.

I would like to take the opportunity to thank all the organizations and companies that have supported us in one way or another in ensuring the vision becomes a reality. Look forward to working with everyone again this year!

Warmest Regards,
Ashran Dato’ Ghazi
