Singaporean tech conglomerate Sea announced that it will be creating more than 2,000 in Malaysia as part of its expanded investment plan in the country.

Sea operates three core businesses across digital entertainment, e-commerce, as well as digital payments and financial services known as Garena, Shopee, and SeaMoney.

ShopeePay is SeaMoney’s mobile wallet available in Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, Vietnam, the Philippines, and Thailand.

The proposed expansion plans in Malaysia involves the setting up of cloud services, data hosting and processing, as well as a new logistics e-commerce warehouse.

This decision was shared with the Minister of International Trade and Industry (MITI), YB Senator Tengku Datuk Seri Utama Zafrul Tengku Abdul Aziz, during his visit to Sea, where Shopee’s headquarters is also located.
