KUALA LUMPUR--Malaysia is eyeing the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and other Gulf countries to market its indigenously-developed information and communication technology (ICT) products.

Areas of cooperation in the ICT sector could include human resources, smart schools, e-commerce and investments.

"Malaysia would like to transfer the locally-developed advanced technology to the Gulf region," Datuk Syed Hussein Al Habshee, Malaysian ambassador to the UAE, was quoted by Bernama on Monday.

As part of this cooperation, the Abu Dhabi-based International Centre for Training and Development is holding two events in Malaysia during the next two weeks with the participation of top business executives from the UAE and other Gulf countries.

A leadership workshop under the theme of "Business Excellence" will be held from July 23 to Aug 1, and a conference on IT will take place between July 29 and Aug 2.

Malaysia is offering the fast-developing Gulf information technology market its expertise in e-government, smart schools, telemedicine, borderless marketing, multi-purpose card, worldwide manufacturing web and R&D cluster, Syed Hussein added.
