YBM MITI, YB Dato’ Sri Mustapa Mohamed chaired a high-level Roundtable Meeting with eCommerce stakeholders on 30 August 2016. Attendees included major players involved in the development of the local eCommerce sector including technology companies, logistic/courier companies, payment providers, market platform providers, sellers as well as related Government ministries and agencies.
The objectives of the Roundtable Meeting among others were to highlight eCommerce players’ contributions to Malaysia in terms of socio-economic development and jobs creation, potential issues/barriers to eCommerce and opportunities for private-public collaboration to accelerate eCommerce growth. Presentations were made by MDEC, Google, iPay88 Malaysia and GDex Malaysia, followed by robust and interactive discussion with industry players.
The Meeting noted the rapid progress made by companies such as iPay88 in terms of being a global technology payment provider in countries such as Japan and the role of enablers such as Google and Lazada in providing training for Malaysian SMEs. MITI together with MDEC and SME Corp will be following up with all the relevant Ministries and agencies in providing a conducive eCommerce ecosystem for Malaysian companies including SMEs.
