Malaysians, if you have the need to shop, there’s some excellent news for you.
The Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC) announced a new initiative to boost the country’s economy.
It’s called the Shop Malaysia Online campaign, and it started on August 1, 2020, and it will run until the end of September 2020.
The campaign is under the National Economy Recovery Plan or better known to Malaysians as PENJANA. It’s the same program that allows Malaysians to claim US$11.93 (RM50) which is credited into the ewallet of their choice.
22 ecommerce partners will be involved in this campaign. Some of these partners are big-name players in the Malaysian ecommerce scene like Lazada, Shopee, Zalora, Foodpanda, Grab, and more.
MDEC stated that the Malaysian government would be allocating US$16 million (RM70 million) to get this campaign running. It also added that all participating partners have collectively matched the government’s funds bringing that total to US$52 million (RM140 million) for sales promotions.
MDEC CEO Surina Shukri said, “By helping Malaysian sellers make the digital leap and evolve into digitally powered businesses, we hope to bolster Malaysians’ confidence to participate in the digital economy and overcome the challenges brought by the pandemic.
“Through Shop Malaysia Online, consumers choosing to shop local are also showing support to local businesses, helping them and their families in these challenging times.”
