According to Prime Minister Mahathia Mohamad, the Multimedia Super Corridor (MSC) is well ahead of its targets so far.

KUALA LUMPUR (iStar) - During his speech when launching NTT MSC Sdn Bhd's Arcnet services, he said that the Malaysian Government sees a bright future for information technology in Malaysia and is sure the MSC will be a success.

Also noted in his speech was that foreign companies would find the MSC a useful center to conduct research and operate from as well for testing their products.

Cyberjaya has seen Arcnet, a trademark of NTT MSC, being locally developed and now offers a full range of Internet access services and electronic business solutions to multinational corporations, small and medium enterprises as well as individuals.

Among the early birds that came to the MSC to start up their office and research and development center in Cyberjaya was NTT Communications.

With that, Dr Mahathir added that Malaysia owed a lot to NTT Communications Corp. (the parent company of NTT MSC), which is one of the strongest supporters of the MSC project.

These gestures and actions of NTT have encouraged other world reknowned companies to come to Malaysia.
