Have you realized that all the e-commerce companies are from Singapore? Carousell, Qoo10, Lazada, Shopee, Zalora etc. Why?

I know Indonesia has Tokopedia, but they don't seem to be influential or even well-known outside of Indonesia. Meanwhile companies such as Shopee are present even in countries outside of Asia. It's like they are trying to compete with Amazon as an alternative in the long-term.

Should Malaysia also have an e-commerce company just to serve our interests, both as customers and sellers? Why rely on Singaporean companies? All we're doing is propping up their fintech economy at our expense.

Because Shopee was only created in 2015...in such a short space of time they grew so big. It's still not over yet for Malaysian companies if they keep dilly-dallying.

Because SG practically has the same culture as us just under a different government, with a shared history. Australia and Japan is not the same. Different mindset.

Let's be honest, half of their workforce are probably made up of Malaysian PRs or ex-Malaysians. A shame most have to cross the causeway when the same competent job could have been done at home.
