SME Corp Malaysia seeks to establish a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with two of its counterparts, namely the SMEs Development Agency of Oman and the Small Enterprise Development Fund of Yemen to strengthen bilateral relations related to the development of small and medium enterprises (SMEs).
CEO of SME Corp Malaysia Rizal Nainy (picture) informed that international buyers from the Middle East as well other parts of the world now can easily source for the products and services of Malaysian SMEs through the MatchME platform. “Introduced since June 2021, MatchME is a digital platform connecting SME companies with anchor companies such as multinational corporations (MNCs), government-linked companies, supermarkets and large companies locally and internationally. Since inception, a total 740 MSMEs, as well as 93 MNCs and large companies from Malaysia and abroad have participated in virtual business matchings through this platform, successfully generating a sum of RM38 million in potential sales,” he added.
This MatchME platform is one of the key components of a larger initiative called MyAssist MSME that provides an online stage for MSMEs to seek business advisory and information, guidance and digital marketing opportunities.
