Malaysia taxi app ready to take neighbours by storm

Story of MyTeksi, used to book taxis without hassle, seen as example of what can be achieved in Asia Pacific markets.

    MyTeksi is the taxi app that has taken Malaysia and neighbouring members of the Asean bloc by storm in just two years. Legally regulated, safe and secure, it allows customers to order a taxi without the hassle of haggling or flagging down one off the street.

    The story of this small business enterprise does not end here. MyTeksi is seen as a prime example of what can be achieved in the Asia Pacific markets, as well as an IT product that has potential beyond the region.

    Al Jazeera's Sohail Rahman reports from Kuala Lumpur, where Asean leaders are meeting to promote business ideas within the bloc.
