"In today's technology-driven economics, the ubiquitous internet and mobile distribution channels are generating new opportunities to deliver content to the public with refreshed levels of customer satisfaction, measurable results and accuracy," he said at the media briefing session for KL Converge 2014, here today.

According to Mohamed Sharil, industry players from nine Asean countries and India have confirmed their participation.
