Knowledge-based urban development of Multimedia Super Corridor, Malaysia: an overview

Knowledge-based urban development of Multimedia Super Corridor, Malaysia: an overview In recent years, with the impact of the global knowledge economy, a more comprehensive urban development approach, so called ‘knowledge-based urban development’, has gained significant popularity. This paper discusses the critical connections among knowledge-based urban development strategies, knowledge-intensive industries and information and communication technology infrastructures. In particular, the research focuses on investigating the application of the knowledge-based urban development concept by discussing one of South East Asia’s large scale knowledge-based urban development manifestations of Malaysia’s Multimedia Super Corridor. The paper scrutinises Malaysia’s experience in the development and evolution of the Multimedia Super Corridor from the angle of knowledge-based urban development policy implementation, infrastructural implications, and actors involved in its development and management. This paper provides a number of lessons learned from the Multimedia Super Corridor on the orchestration of knowledge-based urban development that is a necessity for cities seeking successful knowledge city and knowledge economy transformations. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png International Journal of Knowledge-Based Development Inderscience Publishers

Abstract

In recent years, with the impact of the global knowledge economy, a more comprehensive urban development approach, so called ‘knowledge-based urban development’, has gained significant popularity. This paper discusses the critical connections among knowledge-based urban development strategies, knowledge-intensive industries and information and communication technology infrastructures. In particular, the research focuses on investigating the application of the knowledge-based urban development concept by discussing one of South East Asia’s large scale knowledge-based urban development manifestations of Malaysia’s Multimedia Super Corridor. The paper scrutinises Malaysia’s experience in the development and evolution of the Multimedia Super Corridor from the angle of knowledge-based urban development policy implementation, infrastructural implications, and actors involved in its development and management. This paper provides a number of lessons learned from the Multimedia Super Corridor on the orchestration of knowledge-based urban development that is a necessity for cities seeking successful knowledge city and knowledge economy transformations.
