BiSEA Roadshow to the UK Week 1 Roundup:

Last week, Aurelia Silva, BMCC Executive Director completed the first three legs of the BiSEA (Britain in South East Asia) UK Roadshow in London, Birmingham and Hatfield. Her travels include a visit to the Battersea Power Station, meetings with the Malaysian High Commissioner, MIDA, MATRADE, and Boyd McCleary (former British High Commissioner to Malaysia and BMCC UK Representative). Thus far in her 1-2-1 meetings with numerous British companies keen to do business in Malaysia, the healthcare, lifestyle and F&B markets represent the largest potential in expanding to Malaysia. This week, Aurelia will be completing visits to Chesterfield, Leeds, Manchester and Durham.
