He also underscored the imperative of evolving to meet the ever-expanding content landscape’s dynamic demands where he expressed the need for regulations and influence to extend to a wider spectrum of platforms and industries.

“Continuous attention and thorough consideration of the needs of our esteemed members at the Content Forum are paramount moving forward.

“My goal is to broaden the Content Forum’s scope, recognising that consumed content extends beyond licensed platforms in Malaysia.

Meanwhile, Content Forum chief executive officer, Mediha Mahmood said she looks forward to working together with Rafiq.

“We look forward to jointly fostering a content ecosystem that embraces creativity, innovation, and sustainable industry growth.

Our shared commitment involves upholding the cultural richness, harmony, and values integral to Malaysia within the dynamic landscape of the content industry.”Rafiq, who assumed the role as Media Prima Group MD on Oct 1, 2021 had served as the group executive director from Feb 18 of the same year.
