AvantiKumar | April 5, 2013
SENKO and Multimedia University sign knowledge transfer agreement during the launch of MMU's Graduate School of Engineering: both moves will boost regional telecoms expertise in a booming broadband sector, says the State of Victoria's commissioner to Malaysia and Southeast Asia.

Borderless exchange of ideas

"In a world that is fast becoming borderless, the cross-cultural exchange of ideas is important for sustainable industry growth and for innovation to continue to thrive," said Dillon, adding that SENKO has been working with the Victorian state government for 20 years.

"This partnership between MMU and SENKO is an extremely timely one in view of the emergence of broadband as a basic utility and how it is now as essential as electricity was a century ago," he added. "As we all know, high-speed Internet access is the foundation for innovation and economic growth. This in turn plays a critical role in determining a country's competitiveness within today's connected and borderless world.

The State of Victoria leads Australia's technology industry with 28 percent of Australia's national revenue. Last year, the state posted annual revenue of RM88 billion (US$28 billion).
