Spurring Selangor's Gig Economy with Roda Darul Ehsan (RiDE)
As the world economy recovers from its battle with COVID-19, traditional and conventional economic activities have evolved to embrace the times. Digitally powered gig-economy has become a viable source of livelihood, and the state government is doubling down on its initial RM1 million support of RiDE in its 2020 State Budget with an additional RM1 million after seeing its youth embracing the initiative in coping with the economic challenges brought on by the pandemic. This additional funding will come in the form of subsidies targeted to 3000 Selangor youths.
The youth have shown the world how to embrace this digital age and surge forward. The state government aims to make Selangor youths a key driver in its future as it marches towards becoming a smart state by 2025.
