Closing the Urban-Rural Digital Gap

While urban businesses get to eye the fresh business tools like buy-now-pay-later or e-wallets, business owners in underdeveloped areas are still struggling with basic infrastructure needs, digital penetration and seamless logistics. This is why Quinton Group established a platform to provide a value-added digital ecosystem for the underserved communities in Malaysia. We speak to CEO Dato Alvin Ooi about empowering small business growth across rural Malaysia, and what else needs to be done to close the urban-rural digital gap in the country.
