Lazada Malaysia today announced the launch of their #EveryoneCanSell programme in collaboration with SME Corp, the Companies Commission of Malaysia, Malayan Banking Berhad (Maybank) and Telekom Malaysia . The programme is an end-to-end, fully integrated eCommerce programme that aims to enable merchants to compete not only locally but globally as well with the aim to attract over 50,000 merchants onto the platform by 2018
The platform will empower sellers with all the tools needed to succeed including eCommerce training, easier business training, a host of online tools and solutions, exclusive merchant accounts and loan financing with recommended solutions and support at every stage of the their business journey. Malaysia’s SME sector is one of the most important pillars of Malaysia’s economy and contributes almost 36% to gross domestic product (GDP) according to official figures.
Y.B Datuk Haji Ahmad Haji Maslan, Deputy Minister of International Trade and Industry (MITI) said at the official launch of the #EveryoneCanSell programme,”With digitalisation disrupting businesses, SMEs’ adoption of technology has taken on an even greater urgency than ever before. As Malaysia continues its path towards becoming a fully digital economy, businesses here must continue their evolution to be a part of it. Thus, having e-commerce market leaders such as Lazada Malaysia to help SMEs continue their online growth, will greatly assist in realising the Government’s aim of doubling the e-commerce growth from 10.8% to 20.8% by 2020.”
“Our strategic partnership with esteemed companies and agencies in Malaysia will further enhance our support for SMEs in the areas of productivity, innovation and capability upgrading. We hope to boost SMEs’ capabilities when they capitalise on #EveryoneCanSell’s holistic digital ecosystem, so they remain competitive online. This programme will also be a great training ground for local businesses to upgrade themselves with the right tools and skills required for our upcoming campaign of the year in November, Online Revolution 2017,” said Hans-Peter Ressel, Chief Executive Office of Lazada Malaysia.
