The Malaysian Ministry of Youth and Sports is reportedly looking into the setup of an esports center in Samarahan. This comes after Minister Datuk Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah pointed out that his ministry would like the private sector to look into this matter as much as possible.
“We are prepared to look into it in Sibu but that is a new game that is very popular among the youth,” he said. “We came out with the idea of having the e-games and, to our surprise, the participation received overwhelming response from the youth.”
The Minister also said in his speech that the PLUX Incubation Hub is an ideal platform to groom start-ups and aspiring entrepreneurs in the country. The hub is located in the Sibu Chinese Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
