KUALA LUMPUR: Two ministers have given their assurance that an Indonesian startup called Go-Jek will not be allowed to monopolise the industry should Malaysia allow motorcycle-based e-hailing services.

The Cabinet is expected to discuss motorcycle e-hailing today after Youth and Sports Minister Syed Saddiq Syed Abdul Rahman broached the subject of Go-Jek’s entry into the country, which then led to criticism that he was aiding the expansion of a foreign company rather than supporting homegrown startup’s such as Dego Ride, which was banned by the government in 2017.
