Effective and sustainable competition can lead to lower prices, higher service quality, increased consumer choice and greater innovation. To achieve this, MCI works with IMDA on policies to ensure that telecom and media markets have clear competition rules which promote a conducive environment for investment and innovation; thereby allowing healthy, effective and sustainable competition to flourish.
Public Service Broadcast (PSB) programmes foster an informed and cohesive society. But with changes in the media landscape and media consumption habits, the competition for eyeballs has intensified. To ensure PSB programmes remain relevant, the Government will continue to support efforts to raise the quality of PSB content and to make PSB programmes more engaging.
The Government is investing $250 million per year over the next five years (FY15 – FY19) to strengthen public service broadcasting. The Government will continue to support efforts to increase the reach of PSB programmes and create a vibrant broadcast ecosystem that promotes the creation of quality and engaging local content.
