The proposed set up of ‘Low Yat 2’ is expected to build a new image for the telecommunication equipment business. As per Datuk Hamzah Zainuddin, the Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism Minister, ‘Low Yat 2’ will allow to sell only genuine products. The current ‘Low Yat at Plaza Low Yat’, received negative reviews from the authorities, as many artificial equipment and gadgets were sold here. By selling imitation telecommunication equipment, people were being cheated. Datuk Hamzah Zainuddin told the reporters that time will be required for Low Yat to regain their lost image. To cover the losses and regain their lost image, Low Yat came up with a solution, in the form of Low Yat 2, a one-stop-shot for original quality mobile and telecommunication equipment. Low Yat 2 is a new invention with a new place to create a new image for Low Yat.
According to Datuk Hamzah Zainuddin, Low Yat 2 will be developed with a bigger area. The proposed area will have potential to match Akihabara, a well renowned telecommunication and wireless center in Tokyo, Japan. The new setup is not just meant for bumiputera. The main reason behind developing Low Yat 2 is to give confidence to the consumers or buyers that only genuine products will be sold here. There won’t be any space for duplicate or imitation products. Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob, the Rural and Regional Development Minister, a special space can be allocated at the Majlis Amanah Rakyat building, for mobile phone and related gadgets.
With developments like Low Yat 2, Japan is trying to expand their telecommunication and wireless sector further. With genuine products being sold at Low Yat 2, people will be assured of quality products and services. Telecommunication equipment business will get a new image with stores like Low Yat 2.
