Then, with a Malaysian RFID industry in place and the technology recognized in the domestic marketplace, local companies would begin using and implementing RFID as in the U.S. and Europe. But despite such hopes for the MM Chip, others argue that only a mandate from a large local retailer will spur meaningful RFID adoption in Malaysia.
