Assalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakaatuh,
Alhamdulillah, praise to Allah Almighty for His blessings for giving me the opportunity to appreciate this moment as the new Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Technology Depository Agency (TDA).
I am incredibly honoured to have the opportunity to lead TDA and pledge myself to increase more value for our stakeholders.
My intention as the new CEO is to promote, encourage and facilitate strategic collaborations to new heights of excellence. We are the front liners for Malaysia to acquire future opportunities through Industrial Collaboration Programme (ICP) whether it be for economic growth, technology, and knowledge advancement, or industry capacity and capabilities development.
TDA is focusing on leveraging its strengths and experience in ICP to support government initiatives to spur economic growth for the nation. We are going to explore and venture into a new focus on outcome-based ICP projects based on the Concentrated and Impactful Outcome (CIO) approach. We must look at our common set of values that form the basis for how we make each and every collaboration is efficient enough not only to give the best outcome for our stakeholders but for our nation as well.
Each of us endeavors the commitment and credibility for sustaining TDA in years to come. It really depicts in our new tagline ‘Your Preferred Collaboration Partner’ in striving strong approaches and efforts to ensure TDA to be accepted respectably by our stakeholders that will bring various value-added benefits. I pledge to ensure that TDA shall practice this new tagline to be our culture and to be embedded in our deliverables.
Lastly, I would like to call for all to work together. Let us work together, even in this time of health and economic crisis that has impacted and brought tremendous changes in our daily lives. We must be brave to step forward and embrace the new normal and the technology that it has brought especially in IoT and digitalization. Let us collaborate together in sync and harmony to ensure that the future that we dreamt of can be made available today.
Your Preferred Collaboration Partner
