Samsung Smart Community Centre Opens New Possibilities to RPS Legap

Samsung’s vision to “Inspire the World, Create the Future” is not just an ambition – it is a brand promise that Samsung continues to keep so that communities are able to experience life’s possibilities through innovative technologies and solutions.

It has only been three months since its Love & Care campaign, and Samsung Malaysia Electronics is once again empowering communities as they launch the Samsung Smart Community Centre within the rural areas of RPS Legap in Sungai Siput, Daerah Kuala Kangsar, Perak.
