Tourplus Announces Its Latest Status As The Technology Solution Provider (TSP) for SME Business Digitalisation Grant (SBDG)

By Joel Teh

Good news to all SMEs in Malaysia!

As 2020 has almost come to an end, we recognize the importance of digital adoption in this fast-growing era. Just by 22nd December 2020, the Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC) has appointed us as one of the Technology Solution Providers (TSP) to support the SME Business Digitalisation Grant (SBDG). We are more than happy to participate in this contribution to transform the local SMEs into the sphere of technology.

As a result of Budget 2020, the Malaysian government passed a bill to supply fifty percent matching grants up to RM5,000 to those SMEs that involve themselves in business digitalisation. This initiative consists of the close collaboration between the Ministry of Finance (MOF) and three other corporations: Bank Simpanan Nasional, SME Bank, and MDEC to manage the grant for those eligible SMEs. By becoming our merchants, you could enjoy this privilege in return.
