Fostering Ever Greater Bilateral Trade and Investment Opportunities in India

Malaysia-India-CECA-5 March 2010

Malaysia-India-CECA-5 March 2010

 

 

India’s economy with her growing middle class of 250 million is expected to grow at no less than 8% annually over the next decade. This spells opportunities for Malaysian businesses especially in ICT, healthcare, infrastructure, food products and services. We continue to maintain good bilateral relations and have a proven track record of operating in India. We encourage more businesses to take advantage of this! During my recent official trip, 18 MoUs were signed between Malaysian and Indian companies. The potential value of investments is estimated at RM1.6 billion. This signals the first steps toward collaboration in key areas which include biotech engineering, petrochemical engineering and aerospace engineering. However, signing on the dotted line is only the start and initiatives must be seen through. Here is where MITI becomes the watchdog and will monitor the progress of these MoUs. Toward this end, MITI has started a...

Trip to Bangkok, 21 March 2010
June 29, 2015 , by admin2
 
 
I met a number of top Thai and Malaysian business leaders in my recent trip to Bangkok in the effort to promote greater collaboration as well as to encourage Thai business leaders to invest in Malaysia. Presently, it is noted that there are many Malaysian companies investing in Thailand. Thai investments in Malaysia is limited. This investment imbalance needs to be addressed. It is encouraging to note that the Thai business leaders have shown high interest in investing in Malaysia. We will receive at least three trade delegations from Thailand within the next three months and expect to see the size of Thailand’s investment in Malaysia to increase accordingly. A delegation of over 120 Thai businessmen will be visiting Malaysia on 28-30 March 2010. A Malaysia-Thai Business Opportunities Seminar will be held on 29 March 2010 at Renaissance Hotel where MITI, MIDA and MATRADE officials will be briefing the Thai business leaders on investment opportunities in Malaysia.

Factory Visit 2
June 29, 2015 , by admin2
The other company, S.E.H (Shah Alam) Sdn. Bhd., a Japanese company with local participation, manufactures silicon polished wafers – one of the only four major producers of the product in the world. Since its inception in 1973, the company has invested RM2.8 billion in this business. Going down to the ground to get first-hand feedback is imperative in the formulation of policies and creation of conducive environment for industries to expand. The issue of natural gas supply, foreign labour policy and shortage of talents in the middle management level were some of the concerns highlighted during my visit. It is my priority now to review the current policies pertaining to investment to ensure Malaysia remains on investors’ radar.

Visit to Steel Plant
June 29, 2015 , by admin2
I led a delegation to Malaysian Steel Works (KL) Berhad, MASTEEL, in Bukit Raja, Klang on 14 April 2010. Also in the delegation to the steel plant was the Secretary General of MITI, Y.Bhg.Tan Sri Abdul Rahman Mamat. On hand to receive us at the factory, was the Managing Director cum Chief Executive officer of MASTEEL, Y.Bhg. Dato’ Seri Tai Hean Leng. The company which produces billets and steel bars at an annual capacity of 450,000mt, exports its products to ASEAN, Bangladesh and Australia. Currently occupying 20 acres out of 200 acres of land acquired from Perbadanan Kemajuan Negeri Selangor (PKNS), MASTEEL is planning to diversify its production and invest RM300 million in wire rod and wire mesh manufacturing. While exchanging views on the outlook of the iron and steel industry, I was delighted to note that the conducive domestic business environment has encouraged the company to expand its operations domestically. Well done, MASTEEL ! Tags: business... Read More
Cheese from Australia? ‘Bayam’ from Malaysia?
June 29, 2015 , by admin2
“ The average shopper now has a choice previously not available to them; today you will find several products many of which have a comfortable spot in most Malaysian supermarkets. This degree of choice is commonplace and to some extent expected for most: in one grocery run, you can pick up cheeses from Australia as well as sayur bayam from a local producer and get the best value for money. With this in mind, free trade agreements (FTAs) often do not receive the attention that they deserve .”
