Key beneficiaries of DFTZ: SMEs

According to the World Bank (2016), 97% of business establishments in Malaysia are SMEs. These businesses account for 65% of the nation’s employment and nearly 18% of Malaysia’s exports. Recognizing the importance of SMEs for their contribution to the national GDP, DFTZ’s main objective is to enable Malaysian SMEs go global through a guided journey from setting up eCommerce presence, finding online trade opportunities on B2C and B2B eMarketplaces, engaging trade custom agents and logistic partners, as well as performing digitized export, import and transshipment activities.

By ensuring a seamless integrated and fully online approach to perform cross border trade activities, DFTZ will be able to provide strategic analytics and AI capabilities via the eServices platform to benefit public and private stakeholders involved.
