Suggestion to ACCCIM to Support Local Payment Gateway Providers

To: Members of ICT Group
From: K.L. Ng
Re: Suggestion to ACCCIM to Support Local Payment Gateway Providers

I am been pondering about this for few days. I like to bring up these to all of you for consideration:-

  1. I suggest that ACCCIM/KLSCCCI to take lead in using local e-payment gateway providers (e.g. ipay88, MOL or other payment gateway providers who are ACCCIM members).
  2. ACCCIM/KLSCCCI organise seminars all year round, when members receive seminar invitation via e-mail, there is a link to pay for the registration/seminar fee) and to register for the event.

Disclaimer: I do not have any vested interest in any local e-payment gateway providers. In fact, I am using overseas payment gateway — PayPal.

Young Entrepreneurs Group’s Theme and Activities for 2017

To: EXCO members
Re: Young Entrepreneurs Group’s Theme and Activities for 2017

BEIJING: Alibaba founder and executive chairman Jack Ma will kick-start his role as adviser to the Malaysian Government on its digital economy at the launch of a e-free trade zone (e-FTZ) in March.

In his (Najib’s) Budget 2017 speech last month, Najib announced that a digital economy that includes e-commerce would be Malaysia’s next growth strategy as this could bring about double-digit growth.
(source: http://www.thestar.com.my/news/nation/2016/11/05/adviser-jack-ma-to-start-with-eftz/ )

Key Take away:

  1. Malaysia is moving towards digital economy strongly by evidence of budget allocation and appointing Jack Ma as the advisor.
  2. Many business entreprenuers had claimed that market is very quiet and sales had been slow. If digital ecnonomy can be a successful catalyst then sales could be improved.

My proposal:-

  1. KLSCCCI Young Entrepreneurs Group should take the opportunity to ride on this wave and lead our youth members to ride on this wave; and
  2.  for the year 2017, our theme should be on digital economy, we should plan Youth activities and programmes based on digital economy.
