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.
