Daiso’s investment, according to Amirudin, will further promote Selangor’s economic cycle.

He also stated that discussions were made to determine the possibility for local enterprises to enter the Daiso sector.

“However, because Daiso has over 5,000 outlets worldwide, from South America to Southeast Asia, we must choose from the quality and capabilities of (local companies).”

“So, when Daiso entered the market, it entered the world-class market,” he explained.

Amirudin said logistics hubs are nothing new in Selangor, citing the state’s status as the third location for an IKEA distribution center.

“However, Daiso’s entry is a greater ‘level’ because it is Daiso’s largest distribution center worldwide,” he stated.
