11street (www.11street.my) today announced its latest collaboration with UITOX, the first ever largest online marketplace in Taiwan to introduce 200 élite brands from Taiwan along with around 150,000 products from Taiwanese sellers.

11street’s chief executive officer, Hoseok Kim shared that based on observations, the demand for popular overseas products in Malaysia is increasing especially for cosmetics, accessories such as watches, clothing, electronic gadgets, jewelry and personal care goods, which is reflected in the country’s import patterns and the growing needs by consumers [1].

According to MATRADE’s report on top major imports for 2015, Malaysia’s import just for textiles, clothing and footwear grew more than 60 percent from RM 8.48billion to RM 14.21billion compared over the same period of 2014 [2].

He highlighted, “Partnering with UITOX, 11street is able to introduce more quality international products into the local market, serving as part our commitment to better fulfill Malaysian consumers’ demands with a good mix of local and overseas products.”
