KUALA TERENGGANU:  Rural youth must be ready to embrace e-commerce to keep pace with their urban counterparts, said MCA president Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai.

Liow said the Internet has proven to be able to provide many business opportunities to people around the world, adding that the Government is developing the e-commerce sector and providing the necessary support for people wishing to participate in it.

"Community leaders in rural areas have to be ready to help people take part in this new economy," he said when opening the 34th Malaysian Chinese Culture Carnival at Kampung China here on Saturday night.

Liow said the annual event is a good platform to  foster better understanding and harmony among multi ethic Malaysians.

Among the people present at the event were Federation of Chinese Associations Malaysia president Tan Sri Pheng Yin Huah, Terengganu executive councillor Datuk Tengku Putera Tengku Awang and Terengganu MCA chairman Datuk Toh Chin Yaw.
