Microsoft plans to invest $2.2 billion in cloud and AI services in Malaysia

Microsoft stated that it will invest $2.2 billion in Malaysia over the next four years to expand cloud and artificial intelligence (AI) services, marking the company’s most recent push to promote its generative AI technology in Asia.

Microsoft (MSFT.O), which opens a new tab, announced on Thursday that it will invest $2.2 billion in Malaysia over the next four years to grow cloud and artificial intelligence (AI) services, marking the company’s latest attempt to market its generative AI technology in Asia.

The largest investment in Microsoft’s 32-year history in Malaysia will go toward establishing cloud and AI infrastructure, creating AI-skilling opportunities for 200,000 people, and assisting the country’s developers, according to the company.

“We want to make sure we have world-class infrastructure right here in the country so that every organization and start-up can benefit,” Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella stated during a visit to Kuala Lumpur.

Microsoft will also collaborate with the Malaysian government to develop a national AI Center of Excellence and strengthen the country’s cybersecurity capabilities, according to a statement.

Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim, who met with Nadella on Thursday, stated that the investment backed Malaysia’s efforts to enhance its AI capabilities.

Microsoft is working to broaden its global support for AI development. Nadella announced this week that Microsoft will invest $1.7 billion in neighboring Indonesia and establish its first regional data center in Thailand.
