The Ministry of Industry and Trade proposes to consider Uber and Grab as transport firms

According to the document, regulations on science and technology application in passenger transport connectivity should be adjusted to create fair competition with traditional transport firms.
For a long time, Uber and Grab have been counted as software supply firms so they do not take responsibility for abiding by regulations to ensure safety for passengers and people on the road. Still they have collected transport service fee.
In addition, they are not subject to regulations on transport business conditions, causing unfair competition to traditional transport services such as taxi cabs and motorbike taxi.
