NanoMalaysia Berhad continues to re-energise industries and innovation through successful development and commercialisation of nanotechnology in Malaysia by presenting Malaysian nanotech companies at Nanotech 2020. The NanoMalaysia – MIDA Malaysia Pavilion was launched today by the ambassador of Malaysia to Japan, Dato’ Kennedy Jawan at Tokyo Big Sight, Japan.

After making its debut last year, the Malaysia Pavilion this year once again showcased Malaysian companies offering nanotechnology products jointly commercialised by NanoMalaysia or certified by NanoVerify Sdn Bhd (a subsidiary of NanoMalaysia). Among the companies participating at Nanotech 2020 include Nanopac (M) Sdn Bhd, Pulsar UAV Sdn Bhd, MNA Energy Sdn Bhd, InLazer Sdn Bhd, Airestec Sdn Bhd and Hijrah Nature Herbs (M) Sdn Bhd.

Dr Rezal said that “Nanotech 2020 Japan is an incredible platform for NanoMalaysia’s industry partners to introduce their nanotechnology products to the global market, as well as to expand their network, seeks out investments and find ways to improve their products. Nanotechnology continues to provide efficient and enhanced solutions to various applications in smart living, smart manufacturing, precision agriculture, clean energy and environmental preservation. NanoMalaysia has identified that the “Internet of Nano-Things” or IoNT, will be the core driver of the 4th Industrial Revolution, catalysing revolutionary changes in the industry, business and society. This is reflected in our REVOLUTIoNT initiative, which we aim to launch this year,”
