SHAH ALAM, June 23 — Newly launched Sidec TV will benefit entrepreneurs who want to venture into e-commerce but are too tied up with work to attend classes.
Selangor Menteri Besar Dato’ Seri Amirudin Shari said the platform, introduced by Selangor Information Technology and Digital Economy Corporation (Sidec), aims to attract those who want to join or start an online business.
“The platform offers videos from hundreds of Sidec’s e-commerce classes from the time they started in 2015,” he said during the launch of Sidec TV at a virtual press conference on today.
Amirudin said a collaboration with Media Selangor was formed to promote Sidec TV to have the videos publicised.
“We hope that more digitalisation efforts in the state would be intensified to ensure no one is left behind in the country’s fast-moving digital economy,” he said.
Meanwhile, Sidec chief executive officer Yong Kai Ping said new entrepreneurs who face time constraints are encouraged to join the e-commerce classes.
“To serve this group, we decided to collect all the recordings from hundreds of classes we have organised for public viewing,” he said.
Yong said the launch of Sidec TV with Media Selangor as its partner showed that the digitalisation process in Selangor requires collaboration with the media.
Media Selangor Sdn Bhd chief executive officer Mohamed Fareed Mohamed Ashaaree said Sidec TV reflects the state government’s efforts to help entrepreneurs and online merchants.
“Media Selangor is honoured and proud to be Sidec’s strategic partner in this initiative and to play an essential role to benefit the people in Selangor, especially those who want to venture into entrepreneurship,” he said.
