Through the IDP, IMDA will identify projects that aim to uplift the whole sector and help SMEs to grow. This is done by partnering large companies or industry leaders to co-create the solutions in such projects in the best interest of SMEs and at the same time align with national initiatives such as the National Trade Platform.
One of the first projects is the transformation of Kampong Glam, where IMDA, and SPRING Singapore will work together with the Singapore Malay Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SMCCI) and One Kampong Gelam to co-develop a digital roadmap that will:
- enhance the digital capabilities of merchants in the neighbourhood; and
- transform the visitors' experience in Kampong Glam catering to both locals and overseas visitors.
This is part of the plan to enable richer and immersive customer experiences in shops, malls as well as neighbourhoods.
More details will be released.
