Our Activities!

Virtual business briefings with market leading experts. The events vary from presentations with subsequent Q&A sessions to roundtable discussions or expert panel with various topics such as Budget Outlook, Government changes, etc.

One of our most popular events where we visit production sites, plantations or other form of interactive and informative company presentations. This event is often combined with excursion or field trips, and is a great networking opportunity.

The purpose of these events is to disseminate crucial knowledge on highly relevant topics for business operations in Malaysia. Among the standard topics can be mentioned budget outlook, government changes and legislative changes.

This is often combined with company visits outside the metropolitan area or in neighbouring countries such as Singapore or Thailand and provides good opportunities to network with fellow chambers and their members.

This type of event is for our members and their families. Among other things, we celebrate the Danish traditional Fastelavn in February with "hit the barrel" and invite you to a Christmas ceremony in December

Networking in a relaxed and informal atmosphere with a short business briefing or other initiating activity. We often meet with our fellow chambers from other –often Northern European– countries and make new acquaintances.

Welcome to our new Danish Ambassador in Malaysia!

Today the Malaysian Danish Business Council’s Board of Directors were invited to meet and greet Her Excellency Ambassador Kirsten Rosenvold Geelan, who assumed her position as Ambassador of Denmark to Malaysia in September 2020.

We were exploring opportunities for how we can continue to strengthen the good bilateral relations between Denmark and Malaysia, and through inspiring and motivating conversation, we discussed among other things, the values that are characteristic of Denmark and Danish industries in the form of gender equality, sustainability and environmental responsibility.

We welcome Ambassador Kirsten Rosenvold Geelan to Malaysia and look forward to continued good cooperation with the Danish Embassy and Trade Council.

CMCO Due Diligence!

  • prepare letter of acknowledgment of employment (surat pengesahan majikan) to aid the movement of your employees to work especially those who stay outside the area declared under restriction of movement. The employee would need to show the letter issued by employer and work pass to the police when asked to do so;
  • register with MITI CIMS as the registration allows retrieval of acknowledgment letter from MITI that contains information related to the name of company, business address and manufacturing/services sub-sector. Without prejudice to the enforcement of the SOP that may be announced by the Government in the future, the letter from MITI would help identification of companies allowed to operate (if Government ever decides on only allowing essential services).
  • It is hoped that enforcement can be by self-regulation i.e. instead of requiring companies to get approval from the relevant authority to operate, companies in the sectors listed as essential services and registered as such in the MITI CIMS, would operate as usual. When the enforcement officials come by, company would just need to show the MITI letter. For companies that operate although not listed as essential services, the companies would bear the legal consequences.
  • please issue advisory to your employees to stay at home as much as possible apart from going to work. This would help the Government in flattening the COVID-19 curve as soon as possible and for us to return to normalcy soon.
