In a statement today, Petronas said the new centre set up at the TEGAS Digital Innovation Hub in Kuching will generate digital jobs for local talent and serve as a launchpad for developing the region’s digital ecosystem.

The event was witnessed by Petronas Senior Vice President of Project Delivery and Technology (PD&T), Datuk Bacho Pilong and Deputy Minister of Urban Planning, Land Administration and Environment Datuk Len Talif Salleh, who is also TEGAS Chairman.
Bacho said Petronas is committed to the holistic development of the local community not just by creating more digital jobs but also through upskilling in areas such as software and data engineering.
“Our efforts will also include training unemployed and underserved job seekers in low code development skill sets so that they, too, can participate in the digital economy,” he added.
Commenting on the collaboration, Datuk Len Talif said, “We look forward to working with Petronas on developing an inclusive digital innovation and entrepreneurship ecosystem through the TEGAS Digital Village and Digital Innovation Hub, in line with the Sarawak Post COVID-19 Development Strategy 2030.
We will further promote the partnership by leveraging our existing relationships with local startups, ecosystem partners and universities in Sarawak”.
