Following the success of the Selangor International Business Summit in 2017, I am excited to see the Selangor state government hosting the second edition of the summit this year through our state promotion agency, Invest Selangor Berhad.
Besides acting as a platform for trade industry players to expand their business across ASEAN, the summit serves a bigger purpose of bringing the countries in ASEAN together to work in unison and compete on the global stage as one solid unit.
With an ever-changing global economic landscape, we recognise the importance of the countries in ASEAN to work together as one community to propel ASEAN to the global arena. It is with this spirit that we made it our mission to make Selangor the uniting state that brings together the countries in ASEAN.
Last year, the summit was successful in bringing in a total of 22,071 visitors that generated RM 204.2 million in transaction value. We aim to grow bigger and better this year and are confident in achieving our goal of attracting 25,000 visitors and generating RM 250 million in transaction value.
This is in line with strengthening Selangor’s position as the gateway to ASEAN and propelling us towards our overall vision of becoming the global trading hub.
Being a not for profit initiative, I am excited for you to witness what we have in store in this year’s summit. I look forward to seeing you all there this 6 – 16 September, at MITEC.
It is truly an honour for Invest Selangor Berhad to be working together with our host, the Selangor State Government to organise the second Selangor International Business Summit this year.
As the state’s investment promotion agency, we continuously work to drive local and foreign investments into Selangor since our inception more than 17 years ago.
I am proud to witness that from the amount of jobs created from the investments attracted to the state of Selangor, the local community is positively impacted on a socioeconomic level.
At Invest Selangor, we recognise that Selangor has an abundance of opportunities to grow and thrive – not just for businesses but for the community as well.
Through this summit, I am excited to see Selangor acting as a hub to connect nations globally by bringing businesses together into ASEAN. I am confident that this year’s summit will be as successful than the last and will continue impacting the livelihoods of people.
I look forward to seeing you there!
