It is undeniable that the global COVID-19 pandemic and various movement control implementations have deeply impacted our lifestyles and livelihoods. On the flip side, it has accelerated the adoption of digital platforms and increased the importance of the digital economy. We have witnessed a dramatic paradigm shift with businesses adopting digital payments and services; likewise, consumers’ acceptance and usage of cashless payment platforms such as e-wallets.
The Ramadan bazaar is something to look forward each year for both consumers and business sellers alike. However, with the Movement Control Order (MCO) in place, the government has issued a blanket ban on all physical Ramadan bazaars nationwide this year. Some states like Selangor have also banned all Ramadan markets.
30 March 2020: It is quite apparent that COVID-19 has severely impacted businesses all around, especially the small independent establishments and hawkers who have less access to alternative means of support to ride out this difficult period. Today, we hope to support them with three measures:
- Grab establishes two funds to support driver & delivery partners.
- Grab works with Government of Malaysia to provide updated and accurate news.
26 March 2020: With the extension of the MCO, it is even more imperative for us to look out for our network of delivery partners as they continue to serve our customers.
It’s Day #6 of MCO. Most of us are worried about our own health, safety, and perhaps even our social lives. At the same time, many businesses small and big, restaurants and even market sellers are not just focused on simply sustaining their livelihood but wondering how to cater to the growing demands of their customers with the newly implemented MCO guidelines.
As part of its continuous efforts to improve the safety of passengers, Grab is piloting a new product—Ride Cover, a customised insurance package for a minimal fee of just MYR0.35 per ride.
