H.E. Kiat Sittheeamorn, President of the Thailand Trade Representative (TTR) led a 130-member delegation for a visit to Malaysia from 28-29 March 2010  
H.E. Kiat Sittheeamorn, President of the Thailand Trade Representative (TTR) led a 130-member delegation for a visit to Malaysia from 28-29 March 2010. Aimed to further strengthen the bilateral economic relations between the two countries, the visit also sought to explore potential business opportunities for both countries. The visit reinforces the commitments made by leaders of both Malaysia and Thailand when Y.A.B. Dato’ Sri Mohd Najib Tun Razak visited his Thailand counterpart, H.E. Abhisit Vejjajiva last year to bring existing bilateral relation to a higher level. A series of activities were held in conjunction with the visit, including a Seminar on Malaysia -Thailand Trade and Investment Cooperation, bilateral meetings with Minister of International Trade and Industry, Minister of Plantation Industries and Commodities, as well as the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding between British Dispensary (L.P.)

Smart Collaboration to Enhance ICT Services Sector

Smart Collaboration to Enhance ICT Services Sector
 
I visited Multimedia Development Corp (MDeC) yesterday, 6 April 2010, in an effort to enhance collaboration between my Ministry and the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation (MOSTI). I was impressed with the achievement of local ICT companies, which have registered double-digit growth in exporting their services yearly. There are three areas of mutual interest between MITI and MOSTI which need to be followed-through. They are:
  • enhancing productivity of local small and medium enterprises (SMEs) by utilising ICT; 
  • increasing investment promotion; and
  • increasing export of ICT services.
We will review the progress of this collaboration once every six months and we want to see value creation out of these efforts.

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

Leverage on the Growing Demand for Halal Products and Services in Russia and CIS Countries
June 29, 2015 , by admin2
The demand for halal food in Russia is growing partly attributed to the large Muslim population, estimated in the region of 25 million or 18% of Russia’s 140 million people. Moscow city itself has the largest Muslim population amongst the European cities with 2 million people. There is vast opportunity for Malaysian companies to export halal products and services to Russia and CIS countries in view of the growing Muslim population. In 2009, the Russian Federal Agency for Technical Regulation and Metrology registered a halal System which identifies the compliance of food products and medicines within Islamic law and principles. Furthermore, under the platform of Russia Mufties Council, a group of independent experts established a working group to facilitate the development and implementation of Islamic financial services in Russia. As a result of that, in February 2010, the Russian Association of Islamic Financing Experts (RAIFE) was formed. In the last few years, there had been...
