Malaysia to look into Indonesia’s move to ban e-commerce sales on TikTok

The Malaysian government will look into the action taken by the Indonesian government to ban e-commerce transactions on the social media platform TikTok before devising appropriate measures in the country, said Communications and Digital Minister Fahmi Fadzil on Saturday.

Fahmi said he had received complaints from members of the public who expressed concern about the action, and at the same time, several large stores also raised issues related to price competition for products sold through the platform.

“Many Malaysians use the TikTok Shop platform to sell goods, so I will ask the Communications and Multimedia Commission and the ministry to look into the basis of the action taken by the Indonesian government.

“I think TikTok needs to come forward and give an explanation because one of the reasons why TikTok Shop is banned in Indonesia is because of the issue of predatory pricing, which is threatening local entrepreneurs in Indonesia,” he said. – Bernama
