By Zareef Muzammil

KUALA LUMPUR, April 4 — The Smart Selangor Delivery Unit (SSDU) aims to develop at least 55 per cent of the 60 initiatives under the Smart Selangor Programme by end of the year.

Its Strategic Planning director Mazlan Mahadi said the programme that aims to develop Selangor as a liveable and smart state in the Asean region by 2025 has been implemented at 40 per cent since it kick-started in late 2015.

“We expect that we would be able to meet the target as efforts to implement the initiatives are ongoing as per schedule,” he said at the International Business Review Asean Awards 2020, here last night.

During the event, the SSDU had won the award for Government Delivery Services (Government Services Delivery in Smart State Development) award from the IBR Asia Group.

Mazlan said the prestigious recognition was achieved with the faith and support put in by the state government.

“I believe this achievement would be able to give a boost to the SSDU members to work harder together to enhance technological and digital development in Selangor,” he said.

SSDU had begun its operations in May 2016 had was mandated by the Selangor government to spearhead the implementation of smart initiatives under 12 domains including smart governance, smart waste management and smart traffic management.
