Season’s  Greetings  and  a  Happy  New  Year  2019  from  the MASSA Secretariat!

MASSA  was  priviledged   to   end  2018   with  an  eventful  27th   MASSA  Anniversary Dinner with YAB Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad and YABhg Tun Dr Siti Hasmah Mohamad Ali as our Guests-Of-Honour.

Thanks to the generous sponsorship of our members, the dinner was successfully organised wherein guests from 16 Embassies and High Commissions, Government officials and our associates from the developing countries, Uganda, Bangladesh and Vietnam joined MASSA members in the celebrations.

Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad also unveiled a MASSA publication entitled “27 Years South-South Co-operation”.  The publication of this commemorative book was aimed at documenting MASSA’s 27 years journey to the developing countries.  MASSA is grateful to the steadfast support of Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad who encouraged the formation of this Business Association and gave his support for Malaysian businesses to venture to the developing countries of the South.  27 years on, MASSA is proud that its members have made significant inroads and have established a Malaysian footprint in these countries and it is still growing.

Please visit our website at www.massa.net.my to read the book online and to view the corporate videos and pictures highlights of the anniversary night.
Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad in his speech at the dinner applauded MASSA for its achievements todate, for its perseverance to stay the course, be a catalyst and the first mover to do business in the countries of the South.  He encouraged members to keep the pioneering spirit and build upon our business experience and continue to learn  and innovate with the technological advancements that the digital world presents us, so that we can do more business, more efficiently and with better productivity and consequently improve our business profitability.

Bearing in mind Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad’s advise, MASSA will endeavour to highlight to members, events and news to guide members towards opportunities for networking and business opportunities.   Please look out for MASSA notices for events in our weekly circulars.

We take this occasion to thank all our members, associates, sponsors and contributions for assisting us in bringing you interesting articles in the publication of our E-Newsletter throughout 2018.

We look forward to your continuing support as we endeavour to add value to your South-South connections.

We wish all our members and readers “Season’s Greetings” and best wishes for a “Happy and Healthy New Year 2019”.
