KUALA LUMPUR: The Malaysia Competition Commission (MyCC) is assessing the “post-merger impact” of the two ride-hailing firms Grab and Uber to safeguard the public interest.

“The merger is not under our jurisdiction. But we take note of this because it involves the public interest. We have had discussions with Grab, we’re monitoring the whole process,” MyCC member Dr. Saadiah Mohamad said at a press conference after a forum on “Strengthening Competition Through Market Review” here today.

She highlighted that the commission is monitoring closely any issues of pricing and anti-competitive behaviour arising from the merger.

Last month, Uber announced the disposal of its Southeast Asian business to Grab.
