SHAH ALAM, June 22 — More than 1,000 small and micro entrepreneurs have participated in the Selangor Digital e-Supply Chain (Seldec) programme since it was launched a year ago.
Its Business Development general manager Mohd Fauzan Elham said the encouraging response received showed the Selangor government’s efforts to help the targetted group have worked.
He also welcomed the registration of individuals who are new to the business world into Seldec.
“Seldec was launched in October 2019, yet when the Covid-19 outbreak occurred, we expanded the programme to cover people who are affected.
“Within a year, more than 6,000 shoppers use this e-commerce platform to do their shopping,” he said during the Media Selangor’s Bual Bicara virtual talk show titled ‘Seldec: A Platform to Help Selangor Businesses’ that was aired live on Media Selangor’s Facebook page today.
He said Seldec was given the mandate to develop the entire ecosystem including ordering, delivery and payment.
“Traders only need to market their products on the portal and we will help with the rest including in doing marketing and promotion,” he said.
In October 2019, Selangor Menteri Besar Dato’ Seri Amirudin Shari launched Seldec to help traders increase their revenue through online sales.
