E-Commerce Concept And Application (PPT254)

PPT 254 subject learning really important as Malaysia was one of the pioneers amongst Asian countries to establish a new federal ministry, Ministry of Energy, Communications and Multimedia. The main function of this Ministry is to spearhead and promote the growth of information and communication technology (ICT) with the support of several agencies, including the Malaysian Institute of Microelectronic Systems (MIMOS) established in 1984, Multimedia Development Corporation (MDC) established in 1996, and Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (or MCMC) established in 1998.

These agencies contribute to e-commerce by developing their own agenda. For instance, the Multimedia Development Corporation has been working on a National Electronic Commerce Masterplan designed to facilitate the growth of e-commerce in Malaysia. The four key elements in this Masterplan are to boost confidence in on-line trading, prepare a regulatory framework, build a critical mass of Internet users and introduce an electronic payment system.
Amongst the legislations that have been passed in Malaysia are Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission Act 1998; Communications and Multimedia Act 1998; Digital Signature Act 1997; Computer Crimes Act 1997; and Telemedicine Act 1997. These legislations have been amended over the years in attempts to better address emerging e-commerce issues.

In lieu with the importance of e-commerce, the Malaysian Government has allocated RM 12.9 billion for the Ninth Malaysia Plan (2006-2010). On a broader perspective, Malaysia is participating in Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation's (APEC) to contribute in the efforts of introducing e-commerce laws, policies and regulations to facilitate e-commerce transactions internationally.
