Check Prices Of Goods In Certain Localities Using KitaJaga App

Citizens can check the prices of everyday goods in certain localities through the KitaJaga goods price checking application from March 27.

According to the Minister of Economy, Rafizi Ramli, the application was developed in collaboration with the KitaJaga organisation using open data on the OpenDOSM website.

“The Ministry of Economy and agencies such as DOSM will continue to work together with other e-commerce platforms to develop the potential of price monitoring so that the people can familiarize themselves with the process of comparing prices and making choices based on comprehensive price data.

“Actually, this price data has been around for a long time, but it was not widely used. Now the price data available on the first platform is used by KitaJaga,” he explained.

Rafizi said again, the basic concept through the initiative is to enable people to buy wisely by comparing prices using mobile phones.

He added that the Ministry of Economy continues to be determined to focus in the short term on the accountability of reasonable prices by developing an ecosystem based on price data from all over the country.

“We are also in negotiations with other platforms to build such features to allow people to know the price level in their respective areas,” he explained.
