The previous successful experience in e-commerce will lead us to win the Malaysian market. We plan to work with local marketing firms and make occupation with our carefully selected Taiwanese products!”
Jollywiz, leader of omnichannel operations, builds a strong team for future eco-partnership.
Jollywiz’s Go South expansion will start in 2017. The company used the expo as an opportunity to deepen relation with local companies for future partnerships. During the event, Jollywiz was also introduced to Invest Selangot, SITEC and the consulting agency for many e-commerce companies at MDeC. The meetings will help Jollywiz get the head start in the market. Institute of Information Industry stated that Malaysian government has a friendly attitude towards Taiwan and looks forward to future partnerships. The EXPO has marked Taiwan’s first success in the Go South Plan.
Chinese Non-Store Retailer Association pointed out that Malaysia has allowed 100 percent foreign ownership in e-commerce sector since 2009 in order to support the industry and attract foreign investments. With Jollywiz’s previous achievements, support from the local government and close regional relations, future success in Malaysia is foreseeable. Regarding strategic planning in Malaysia, Jollywiz believes more thorough researches are necessary. In addition to localization, a “grounded” team must be built to fully grasp local trends in culture and fashion. More focus will also be put on technology sharing and bettering API systems for future Eco-partnerships.
