PUTRAJAYA, Dec 13 — Digital Minister Gobind Singh Deo will take over several agencies that were previously under the now-defunct Communications and Digital Ministry, Fahmi Fadzil said.

“Meanwhile, the status of Digital Nasional Berhad is still under discussion ,” he said, referring to the government’s special purpose vehicle formed to oversee the single-wholesale network rollout of Malaysia’s 5G infrastructure.
