A National Open Source Policy for Malaysia

A National Open Source Policy for Malaysia

I'm still keep the program book (show directory) for LinuxWorld Conference & Expo, Where Open Minds Meet held 11 - 12 May 2004, Hotel Istana, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

What interest me is the "A National Open Open Source Policy For Malaysia". It was presented by Afrezal Tahrin, at that time working with MIMOS berhad. Here is the abstract taken from the program book.

Afrezal Tahrin, MIMOS Berhad


Many countries are looking into open source software as a viable alternative for delivering public services and promoting the growth of its software industry. The benefits of Open Source have encouraged many governments to formulate their own National Policy on Open Source.

In 2002 and 2003, MIMOS Berhad and others lobbied the Government of Malaysia for the need for Malaysia to have National Policy on Open Source. As a result, in late 2003, MIMOS Berhad was asked to lead the development of such a policy. Members of the secretariat appointed to co-ordinate this effort will discuss the methodology and progress in drafting the National Open Source Policy for Malaysia.

The presentation will also cover worldwide policy on Open Source and the various approaches taken by Governments to promote the growth of Open Source in their own countries. The presentation will also discuss the Malaysian situation and the suitability of different approaches for Malaysia.


To have the implementation of this policy is my personal agenda now.

I just found this slide from Googling.
