Greetings from MASSA!

We are pleased to feature 2 countries in this edition of our newsletter.  They are the Republic of Kazakhstan and Mongolia.

Malaysia-Kazakhstan Business Forum organised by the Embassy of the Republic of Kazakhstan and MATRADE on 3 May 2017. The Kazakh Invest provided MASSA with further information on the prospects and opportunities to invest in this strategic central Asian country.  Kazakhstan is currently hosting Astana EXPO 2017.  The Malaysian Pavilion has been thronged by visitors and we are pleased to note that through the initiatives of the Ministry of Energy, Green Technology and Water, its initial target of USD288.7 Million in trade and investment initiatives have been met and exceeded over.  Syabas Malaysia !

We also feature the country, “Mongolia”.   MASSA organised a Business Talk on Mongolia.  It was presented by Mr Reynolds Augustine, Honorary Consul of Mongolia.  Mr Augustine presented the untapped potential of this country that is strategically located between two giants, China and Russia.  It is a country with vast untapped mineral resources, agricultural land and livestock that has much potential to develop.

MASSA also connected with the High Commission of Papua New Guinea in Malaysia.  A meeting was held with H.E. Mr Peter Vincent, the High Commissioner.  Plans are in place to organise a Business Forum and a business mission to Papua New Guinea in 2018.

Malaysia Showcase in Bangladesh, its 5th Edition will be held this month in Dhaka.  Together with our associate organisation, Expertise Resource Association (ERA) a MASSA delegation comprising 10 members will be visiting Dhaka from 20 – 23 September to participate in the business meetings and seminars during the showcase.

Look out for our weekly circulars and be informed and join the networking. We take this opportunity to thank you all again for your support.
