The Selangor Information Technology and E-Commerce Council (SITEC) was established by the Selangor State Government, under the secretariat of Invest Selangor to develop Selangor as the regional trading hub for e-commerce, and to uplift the startup ecosystem. The SITEC Council is chaired by Selangor State Exco in charge of investments, Dato’ Teng Chang Khim.
SITEC has been tasked to encourage small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in the state to embrace e-commerce, and to widen their market in a borderless world. For a start, it aims to help 100 SMEs in the state to go online by providing e-commerce education and training (e.g. Selangor E-Commerce Class 100), and helping them to sell on online shopping platforms (via the Selangor Online 100 initiative), as well as through mobile applications (Selangor Apps 100).
In addition, SITEC aims to build up a Selangor “mobile community” with mobile apps. These apps are dedicated to making interaction between rakyat and government seamless and centralised — information is easily, quickly and remotely accessed on mobile devices.
