MDEC hopes to boost online trade through Go-eCommerce Expo 2021


KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC) has launched the Go-eCommerce Expo 2021, a virtual e-commerce conference to get local businesses to adopt e-commerce by leveraging on the Budget 2021 Go-eCommerce initiative.

MDEC said the expo, which runs from Sept 20-23, 2021 hopes to promote e-commerce as a revenue channel among local businesses and help them capture a wider audience and drive higher sales.

MDEC is working closely with 23 partners, namely Alacarte, DeliverEat, DHause, dropee, Eromman, EZAssist, Food Market Hub, Foodpanda, Grab, iBeli, Instantestore, JDMas, JOCOM, Kravve, Kumoten, Lazada, Mpay, PGMall, Senangpay, Shopee, SHOPLINE, Sitegiant, and Subplace, to assist and ensure a wider audience reach and boost uptake among local businesses.

“The pandemic has made it abundantly clear that digital adoption is a necessity for the success of our businesses. MDEC, through our #SayaDigital initiative, will continue to strongly support local businesses leveraging on Budget 2021 and the recent Pemulih programme,” said its chief executive officer Mahadhir Aziz in a statement. “We are positive e-commerce will create more opportunities and revenue streams, thereby advancing an inclusive digital economy in line with the Malaysia Digital Economy Blueprint (MyDigital) and Shared Prosperity Vision 2030.”

According to MyDigital, the digital economy is set to contribute 22.6 percent to the country’s gross domestic product (GDP) by 2025, targeting 875,000 micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) to adopt e-commerce.

MDEC said the expo would also feature experienced industry speakers who would share their experience and tips on how to successfully create brand awareness and sales funnel to driving sales, as well as using social media to boost e-commerce.

Last year, the Go-eCommerce Expo attracted over 3,000 registrations and over 30,000 total viewers through the 12 webinars and 23 speakers featured.
