"I am proud to say that this campaign to boost cooperation between the two countries' creative industries is timely as we share common interests, cultures, traditions, languages and race,” says H.E. Dato' Sri Kamaruddin Siaraf, secretary general, Malaysian Ministry of Information, Communications and Culture. “We commend Singapore's positive efforts and welcome mutually-beneficial collaboration in Iskandar Malaysia. Such collaboration would help create a broad base of prosperity, vitality and activity for both countries."

The National Film Development Corporation of Malaysia and the Media Development Authority of Singapore plan to spearhead and encourage more co-productions and combined distribution projects from within the region to accelerate global growth.

“To take full advantage of the fast-expanding growth of Asia’s media industry, it is crucial for Singapore and Malaysia’s media industries to grow in tandem and collaborate in media projects together with the interest of penetrating the

global market,” says Yeo Chun Cheng, assistant chief executive officer, MDA. “This first of many future events by Singapore and Malaysia is only the beginning in the efforts to further synergize our efforts and open the way for Singapore and Malaysian companies to create compelling content that resonates with local and international audiences.”
