Issue #78 - 18th December 2017 Please note our BMCC Office will be closed for Christmas on the 25th of December
Championing Malaysia's Digital Economy
The BMCC concluded the year in emphatic fashion as we hosted a Premier Luncheon with MDEC’s visionary CEO Datuk Yasmin. An internationally acclaimed speaker, Datuk Yasmin delivered a presentation both inspirational and thought-provoking to all in attendance as she shared how MDEC has been Championing Malaysia’s Digital Economy. She touched on topics such as the unmistakable growing interest in Artificial Intelligence and how one day financial technology will be heavily reliant on Ai, just as socio-political aspects will one day be. She also spoke of MDEC’s role and affiliation with Jack Ma and Alibaba in creating the Digital Free Trade Zone (DFTZ), the first of its kind outside of China. One thing’s for certain, MDEC has been leading Malaysia’s digital frontier and continues to do so in fine fettle as we head towards establishing our nation as the regional hub for tech start-ups and e-commerce enterprises.
While some countries have been performing decommissioning for many decades, Malaysia is just beginning to see the need for a greater understanding for this procedure. Join us for this special event addressing the issues of decommissioning organised by the BMCC's Energy Committee and in collaboration with the Malaysian Oil & Gas Services Council (MOGSC). Taking place on 15th January 2018. 50% off for BMCC and MOGSC members.
Mark your calendars next month as we throw a BMCC New Year's Drink to welcome back our members from their holidays and to pay tribute to our loyal supporters.
More information to follow. See you in the New Year!
