In a strategic move to accelerate the digital transformation in Selangor, Siemens has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the State Government of Selangor to offer technology advisory and consultancy services.   
This partnership is geared towards exploring opportunities for the development, support and enrichment of digital transformation ambitions in Selangor, in line with the Rancangan Selangor Pertama (RS-1) framework. The key segments covered by the MoU are:  
  • Industry: Drive the digitalization and automation of Selangor's industrial sectors with Siemens' expertise. These sectors include Agrotechnology, Communication and Transportation (e.g. automotive, electric vehicles), Electrical & Electronics, Engineering & Machinery, Supply and Distribution of Goods (e.g. ports and logistics). 
  • Sustainability: Work towards enhancing environmental sustainability in areas such as resilience and disaster management, flood mitigation, water management and low-carbon management.
  • Education: Siemens will actively contribute to advancing the education sector in the state, with a specific focus on fostering innovation and leveraging cutting-edge Siemens technologies under the Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) pillar. This agreement will further strengthen Siemens' existing collaboration with the Selangor Technical Skills Development Centre (STDC), a state government-linked institution, to provide expert training for upskilling and reskilling of industry professionals since 2021.  
Siemens is chosen as a technology advisor for several reasons: 
  • Siemens is a leading technology provider with comprehensive products and solutions for a wide range of markets in the Malaysian economy under its Digital Industries and Smart Infrastructure businesses. 
  • Siemens stands out as one of the most innovative technology companies globally, leading the way in the digitalization of industries and infrastructure. 
  • Siemens actively engages in collaborative ecosystems with partners. 
  • Siemens's well-established training program facilitated by SITRAIN - Digital Industry Academy reinforces the commitment to upskill and reskill professionals in the industry.   
The MoU was signed by Yang Bhg. Dato’ Johary bin Anuar, Deputy State Secretary of Selangor and Mr. Tindaro Danze, President & CEO of Siemens Malaysia, in the presence of YAB Dato' Seri Amirudin bin Shari, Menteri Besar of Selangor, and Dr. Roland Busch, President & CEO and Managing Board Member of Siemens AG.  
Dato‘ Seri Amirudin Shari, Chief Minister of Selangor, said “This marks a pivotal occasion which can accelerate Selangor’s position to the forefront of digitalization in Southeast Asia. At a time when there is uncertainty for the future of globalization, efforts like these can foster stronger regionalization, to make Selangor a leading state on digitalization and the region’s top state for high-end technical and vocational training (TVET).”    
Mr. Tindaro Danze, President & CEO of Siemens Malaysia, stated, "Our collaboration with the State Government of Selangor positions Siemens at the forefront of advancing the state's digital transformation initiatives. Through our advisory and consultancy services, we can support the government in its vision to accelerate digital transformation for the state and create business opportunities for the industry eco-system in Selangor and beyond.”    
The newly inked alliance aims to boost Selangor's standing as a leading state in Malaysia to attract both domestic and foreign investments across various sectors.
