“The Penang state government recognizes the need for the state to undergo digital transformation to progress and develop economically and socially. Thus, as part of the Penang2030 vision, MBSP has been leading the way in making the cashless society aspiration a reality by pioneering cashless parking, then public markets and hawker stalls. Today, we are taking another first step to digitize the bill payments aspect of the city by partnering with Boost as a cashless payment,” said YBhg. Dato’ Sr Hj Rozali B.
