“I believe that the music industry in Asia is well-alive and it needs to gather the whole industry, from artist to publishers to record labels to high-tech companies to brands, all under one roof to combine our knowledge, expertise, resources and contacts to take the world by storm. We strive to lead and grow the Asia Pacific music ecosystem, consisting of the core music industry and associated music industry, to a global scale,” said Adam Ham, CEO of Global Creative and Media Agency (GCMA), co-organizer of KL Jamm Music Festival.

According to a recent study, it is found that the economic output impact of the music ecosystem in Malaysia is between RM12.2 billion to RM13.4 billion per year. This means that for every Ringgit spent in the music industry generates about RM2.20 of output for the Malaysian economy. In addition, the music ecosystem has a value-added impact (GDP) between RM5.5 billion to RM6.1 billion per year. The core industries generated 36% of the music industry’s GDP impact, while associated industries generated 64%, illustrating the significant economic contribution of associated industries.
