ABOUT BULAN ICT

About Bulan ICT

Sabah began its ICT initiatives in a more aggressive manner with the launching of e-Government System, Sabah.Net and the State Public Sector IT Master Plan on 23rd September 1997. Since then, the journey has been progressing from strength to strength. The year 2018 marks the 21st anniversary of such initiatives. In this regard, the Ministry of Education and Innovation (formerly known as Ministry of Resource Development and IT) since November 2007 has been organising the Sabah ICT month annually to commemorate these initiatives.

The event brings together representatives from the Public and Private sectors as well as the NGOs. The yearly month-long celebration comprises a series of activities such as seminars, road shows, exhibition, competitions and a gala night as the grand finale, where all ICT players will come together and celebrate their efforts.

The Sabah ICT Month 2018 is under the auspices of the Ministry Education and Innovation, with close co-operation, collaboration and join implementation with related and relevant government and private organisations.
