SHAH ALAM (March 4): The empowerment of digital transformation through 5G coverage is expected to create an additional 750,000 jobs in Selangor by 2030, the Selangor state assembly was told on Monday.

State Islamic Affairs and Innovation Culture Committee chairman Dr Mohammad Fahmi Ngah said that the transformation is also expected to create the potential for an increase in gross domestic product (GDP) of approximately RM150 billion by 2030.

He said the implementation of the 5G network is also one of the key pillars in realising the state government's aspiration to achieve the vision of the Southern Selangor Integrated Regional Development Project (Idriss) in the Kuala Langat district and Sabak Bernam Development Area (SABDA) as outlined in the framework of the First Selangor Plan (RS-1).

"Among the projects to be implemented through the 5G network under Idriss are the NCT Smart Industrial Park, Sepang, Sepang Gold Coast, Sepang 2000, Selangor Business Capital and Guocoland Emerald Sepang," he said.

He was replying to a question from Chua Wei Kiat (PH-Rawang), who wanted to know how the 5G network would assist in development in Selangor.

Mohammad Fahmi said that as of Dec 31 last year, 5G coverage in populated areas in Selangor had reached 95.9%.
