Malaysian Traders and Distributors Can Now Export Ordinary Portland Cement
July 3, 2015 , by admin2
MITI announced on 10 September 2009 allowing traders and distributors to export ordinary Portland cement (OPC). The decision was based on consultations with industry, including the Cement and Concrete Association of Malaysia (C&CA). Previously, the Export Licence (AP) for OPC was only granted to local manufacturers of cement. The decision to allow traders and distributors to export OPC was taken to ensure the competitiveness of the cement industry, especially during the current economic downturn. Extending the AP to traders and distributors will assist the local industry to access new markets through contacts and networking established by traders/distributors with end users.

July 2, 2015 , by admin2
Malaysian businesses should capitalise on their competitive edge in the service sectors to tap preferential trade facilities under the China-Asean Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA), said International Trade and Industry Deputy Minister Datuk Mukhriz Mahathir. “I see there is less competition in the services sector as it is totally different from other sectors..it very much depends on quality. “I think Malaysians have certain inherent advantages that we should make full use of,” he told Bernama on the sidelines of the “2010 FOCAFTA” seminar here on Thursday. Mukhriz said there was massive construction going on in many parts of China where Malaysian companies could provide architecture or design services to China. “China can look up to our capablities in this aspect. This is one area we can pursue further,” he said, adding that China was a huge market which also offered business opportunities in several other sectors for Malaysians.
