H.E. Mr Fahmi Fadzil
Minister of Communications and Digital, Malaysia
Fahmi Fadzil, 41, is one of the youngest individuals in Malaysia's cabinet, serving as the Minister of Communications and Digital.
One of Fahmi's primary policy priorities is jumpstarting Malaysia's Golden Digital Decade. A cornerstone of this initiative is a focus on ensuring comprehensive and exhaustive internet accessibility for all Malaysians.
While accomplishing this can be challenging given Malaysia's existing socioeconomic gaps and large swathes of difficult to access rural areas, Fahmi is determined to ensure that when it comes to being connected to global information highways, no Malaysian is left behind.
Fahmi Fadzil holds a bachelor's degree in chemical engineering (BSChE) from Purdue University, Indiana, USA. Before entering public service, he was an award-winning theatre practitioner and writer.
