SHAH ALAM, June 24 — The Selangor Digital e-Supply Chain (Seldec) aims to create 7,800 job opportunities in various sectors by 2025, says Dato’ Seri Amirudin Shari.

The Menteri Besar said the online marketplace, which had received an overwhelming response especially among youths who have lost their jobs, has 395 entrepreneurs registered so far.

“This programme helps entrepreneurs, particularly those in the rural areas, to improve the socio-economic condition and provide them training and knowledge on digital marketing system.

“In three years’ time, we are targeting to have at least 1,000 entrepreneurs registered (with the programme),” said Amirudin during the launch of the Seldec online portal and the Seldec Rider application at the Selangor State Secretariat building, here today.

He said the platform also offers courier service across the state via Seldec Rider.

“A total of 100 people have registered (under Seldec Ride) and the number will increase as we are planning to set up more collection hubs and delivery coverage area in the state,” he added.

Seldec, which is spearheaded by Selangor Industrial Corporation Sdn Bhd (SIC), connects businesses and customers at real-time via the website at https://www.seldec.com.my/en.
