Since the establishment of Smart Selangor Delivery Unit (SSDU) in April 2016, SSDU has worked closely together with the stakeholders of Selangor State, particularly with the Local Councils to identify the citizens’ problems, plan the best and ideal solution, and to implement the initiatives that will help to improve the quality of life of the citizen.
Based on this co-creation principle, the significant involvement of the Local Council to ensure the success of the implementation of the Smart Selangor initiatives are undeniable. In view of this, SSDU conducted an appreciation session to the Local Councils in conjunction with the Selangor Smart City & Digital Economy Convention 2018, at the Malaysia International Trade and Exhibition Centre ( MITEC ).

The appreciation for Smart Selangor Delivery Platform (SSDP) was awarded to MPAJ, MPKj, MDHS, MDKS and MDSB. MDHS was also awarded for their dedication and co-operation for the pioneer implementation of the Cashless Society initiative, while MPKlang received the appreciation for the implementation of Smart Pasar.
