KUCHING, 30 June, 2020 – The Sarawak Multimedia Authority (SMA), as the owner of Sarawak Pay e-wallet platform, welcomes application developers to bundle their e- commerce solutions with Sarawak’s own. Towards, this end, the Authority applauds Pay and Go Sdn Bhd for rolling out Malaysia’s first Licensed Plate Recognition (LPR) Smart Car Park system that integrates with the e-wallet.


Since the roll out of the LPR Smart Car Park system at CityOne Mega Mall, Kuching on 15th June, 2020, the system has raised the interest of many shopping malls, office complex, public car park and condominium in Sarawak. The system not only improves


efficiency and lower operational cost, but it also provides the community a user- friendly and safe parking experience via their mobile phone.


The Pay and Go App enhances Sarawak’s digital economy ecosystem that was first catalysed by YAB Chief Minister of Sarawak’s visionary move to deploy the Sarawak Pay mobile payment platform in Nov 2017. Then, YAB Datuk Patinggi Abang Zohari had declared that “Sarawak cannot afford to be left behind", in terms of digital technology adoption, and digital economic growth which benefits our people.


In driving the mass adoption of digital platforms by the community, useful platforms such as the Smart Car Park system serves to build a thriving e-Commerce environment. This dovetails neatly into one of Sarawak’s eight digital economy sectors; e-Commerce, led by the Sarawak Multimedia Authority.
