Luncheon at the Ambassadors residence with MITI and MIDA

Today, a number of business leaders from Danish companies were invited by Danish Ambassador Jesper Vahr to a luncheon at the Ambassadors residence, hosting the Secretary General of MITI, Datuk Isham Ishak along with several senior staff from MITI and MIDA

Fair trade, not protectionism were keywords from Datuk Isham, who also emphasised a strong focus on industry 4.0 and on SME’s as well as a focus on fighting corruption, coordinating important policies across all ministries and on businesses to think not just Malaysia, but ASEAN.

Businesses brought up more streamlined international trade processes, enforcement of IPR and predictability in regulations. On balance there was a very positive spirit with participants feeling that Malaysia is a great place to do business and to live and Danish companies will continue to plan for increased business ties with Malaysia.

I joined MDBC to help my company get better market insight and find business opportunites as well as to build a network in Malaysia and better understand what is going on. Along the path I joined the board of EUMCCI as well as the Green Building Committee of EUMCCI and it have been a fantastic journey where I have gotten to know hundreds of people and attended many inspiring and informative events. The leads and connections have led to many business opportunities and it has not only fulfilled but far exceeded my expectations. As Chairman, I hope to help our members experience a similar journey.
