This bazaar is an example of how Malaysia is progressively growing to become a digital-first economy, with businesses leveraging technology to digitize their business and offer new experiences for customers. According to Yang Berbahagia Datuk Haji Azmi Bin Abdul Hamid, Executive Director of Socioeconomic Development, Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL), the event is a “step in the right direction in empowering more MSMEs and SMEs to adopt digital solutions as Malaysia embraces a digital lifestyle.”

Jenson Wong, Chief Executive Officer of Tech Hunter, said, “We have seen the boom of e-wallets in recent years that exponentially increase Malaysians’ interest in conducting cashless transactions. This year, we are upping the ante, by giving a glimpse into the lifestyles of the future. With Ramadan Bazaars being a Malaysian staple, we know that there is no time better than now for us to encourage Malaysians to live life digitally.”

The Ramadan bazaars are part of Malaysia’s culture, and traders are keeping the tradition alive by innovating and offering digital payment options for their customers. Tuan Hj Gulam Muszaffar Bin Mustakim, President, Kuala Lumpur Pasar Malam Management Association (PMKL), said, “We are excited to be working with Tech Hunter Global and our partners, to put the right technologies in place which not only enhances their operational efficiency, but enables them to respond to the digital demand of Malaysians.”

The event features Yes, the telecommunications provider that powers the 5G connectivity throughout the entire bazaar, making it the first-ever 5G Ramadan Bazaar, powered by Yes 5G, as part of the Tech Me To Bazaar campaign.
