Visit to Combat Coating (M) Sdn Bhd and Sipro Plastic Industries Sdn Bhd
June 29, 2015 , by admin2
During my visit to Combat Coating (M) Sdn Bhd Snapshots at Sipro Plastic Industries Sdn Bhd
I visited two factories yesterday. The first company was Combat Coating (M) Sdn Bhd and the other, Sipro Plastic Industries Sdn Bhd. Those in the automotive sector should be familiar with the names as they are renowned local SMEs providing their products and services to domestic automakers like PROTON, Perodua, Toyota and NAZA KIA to name a few. These companies bear testament to the Government’s efforts in developing local SMEs. They are the products of Malaysia-Japan Automotive Industrial Cooperation or better known as MAJAICO programme. The programme, costing some RM7 million, has assisted 77 Malaysian companies so far in manufacturing quality components. Through process improvements, companies will be able to improve quality and increase productivity. We need more local SMEs capable of supplying their products to multinational corporations. We do not want them to only supply to the domestic market, but also to reach-out globally. The government on its part is trying...

By Datuk Mustapa Mohamed…
LAST year, Malaysia’s approved investments continued on a sharp recovery trend with total approved investments in the manufacturing sector recording a value of RM56.1bil compared with RM47.2bil in 2010. Penang, Selangor, Sarawak and Johor topped the table with RM9.1bil, RM8.7bil, RM8.5bil and RM6.6bil, respectively. Penang has consistently been among the top investment destinations over the last four decades.The island state is a manifestation of the success of Malaysia’s evolution from a primary-based to a highly industrialised economy. The success of the transition of the Malaysian economy is due, in no small measure, to the development and industrial plans introduced by the Federal Government since Independence, especially after 1970.A major thrust of these plans was to promote the growth of private investments, both local and foreign. These plans combined with a politically stable environment, effective policy and implementation framework,...
