BMCC Hosts First Webinar on F&B Sector
25 Feb 2018
Building itself towards becoming a Global Halal Hub whilst supporting an open market for food products, for which Britain has a strong influence in, the Malaysian F&B sector is unique and could oftentimes pose a challenge for foreign companies to understand.
A Webinar organised by the BMCC Trade Team on the 22nd February 2018 was a new initiative to enable accessibility for British companies (both existing UK clients and new ones) to learn more about Malaysia, its business opportunities and how the BMCC can assist them in entering the market.
Held at the British High Commission Kuala Lumpur and in collaboration with the UK-ASEAN Business Council (UKABC), this webinar was well received with over 40 registered participants and 22 attendees logging in to hear from industry experts Ahmad Khairuddin (Executive Director, Manufacturing Development (Resource) Malaysian Investment Development Authority, MIDA) and Mohamed Romzi Sulaiman (Senior Manager , Centre of Excellence – Support Services and Development Division, Halal Industry Development Corporation, HDC) present on a range of matters, from our local manufacturing sector, government incentives for UK companies to Malaysia’s Halal Industry.
The first Webinar was a big step for the BMCC because of the involvement industry experts (senior management) from MIDA and HDC as guest speakers in sharing their knowledge and exclusive insights on Malaysia’s thriving F&B sector and the Halal Industry. Attendees also had the opportunity to engage directly with them through an interactive Q&A session.
Future BMCC Webinars will replicate the success of this first endeavour and maintain the involvement of industry experts in Malaysia as guest speakers with topics focusing on other sectors specialised by the BMCC Trade Team which includes retail, healthcare, construction, professional services and oil and gas.
