Sustainability, Innovation, and Competitiveness will be seen during the SEMICON Southeast Asia 2024

Themed Boosting Agility and Resiliency of the Global Electronics Supply Chain, SEMICON Southeast Asia 2024 will feature more than 500 exhibiting companies and more than 1,000 booths, doubling participation from last year’s exhibition and conference. The exponential expansion underscores the rising interest in Southeast Asia’s semiconductor sector and the increasing importance of SEMICON Southeast Asia, the region’s premier global electronics manufacturing and supply chain event, in bringing industry stakeholders together to pursue new innovation and growth opportunities.
Accounting for US$200 billion in chip exports, Southeast Asia boasts growing manufacturing capabilities, supporting government policies and a strong pool of skilled workers.
In recent years, Southeast Asia has become a compelling destination for foreign direct investments (FDIs) due to its strategic location, investment-friendly policies, and the region’s diverse workforce,” said SEMI Southeast Asia President Linda Tan. “SEMICON Southeast Asia 2024 is a crucial platform for the region, offering a tremendous opportunity for participants to actively engage with industry peers, network, and share knowledge.”
In 2023, Malaysia’s Electrical and Electronics (E&E) industry contributed over 40% to Malaysia’s total exports, making it a vital component and strong performer of our export economy,” said YB Tengku Datuk Seri Utama Zafrul Aziz, Minister of Investment, Trade and Industry (MITI). “This is a clear demonstration of how strong policies have contributed to this sector’s resilience, which will receive further impetus under the New Industrial Master Plan 2030 (NIMP2030) and the National Semiconductor Strategic Task Force (NSSTF).
With focus areas such as integrated circuit design, wafer fabrication, and high-technology industries, we aim to strengthen Malaysia’s position in the global E&E value chain with an emphasis on sustainability, innovation, and competitiveness,” YB Zafrul Aziz said. “To that end, we are pleased to again welcome SEMICON Southeast Asia. The event is expected to help domestic E&E companies strengthen their footprint within the region as they capitalize on increasing global demand for semiconductors.”
