TikTok e-commerce transactions in Malaysia continue

Tiktok e-commerce transactions in Malaysia continueThe government will not take action to stop e-commerce transactions on the TikTok social media platform like the Indonesian government before a full investigation is carried out, said Minister of Communications and Digital Fahmi Fadzil.

“Obviously, the situation in Malaysia is different from that in Indonesia. I have requested some information from TikTok to understand the full situation of TikTok Shop operations involving data sharing and so on.

“They will come back with feedback. We will check first. If necessary based on the information we receive, what action needs to be taken we will take after that,” he told reporters after the “Malaysia First 5G Autonomous Warehouse” Launch Ceremony at DHL Supply Chain, Shah Alam.

Yesterday, Fahmi met with TikTok’s top management led by TikTok’s Global Vice President Helena Lersch. He stated that its operation’s compliance with the law is still unsatisfactory.

In addition to having to operate according to Malaysian guidelines and laws, TikTok must also be more proactive in curbing the spread of fake news. As well as defamatory material on the platform, including “Coordinated Inauthentic Behavior” (CIB).

Recently, the Minister of Trade of Indonesia, Zulkifli Hasan, announced that Indonesia will ban e-commerce transactions in the TikTok social media platform that gives high income to online traders.

The measure, which takes effect immediately, aims at protecting offline traders and markets. As well as preventing the use of personal data for business purposes.
