Smaller firms urged to embrace digital

Malaysia’s micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) are being urged to adopt digital technology to help them recover from the Covid-19 pandemic.

SME Association of Malaysia President Datuk Michael Kang said MSMEs can only survive with technology and digital adoption to sustain their businesses.

He said: “I think if the MSMEs are not able to sustain and are not competitive in their business, they wouldn’t survive at all. There’s no other way. This is the new norm. So we hope the MSMEs will adopt technology and digital.”

Kang added that a major factor in helping MSMEs recover from the pandemic would be the speeding up of the vaccination programme.
