China-Malaysia entrepreneurship conference in December
By Digital News Asia July 29, 2013
- 1,000 participants from Malaysia, China and other South Asian and Asean countries expected
- 3rd edition of conference, to be held Dec, has theme ‘Positive Energy Creates Better Opportunity’
THE Malaysia-China Chamber of Commerce (MCCC) and express delivery company TNT Express Malaysia have announced the third edition of the Malaysia-China Entrepreneur Conference (MCEC) will be held in Kuala Lumpur on Dec 1.
The conference will offer opportunities for the exchange of ideas, and to explore, expand, improve and increase trade exchanges and collaborations between the two countries, TNT Express Malaysia said in a statement.
The MCCC expects about 1,000 participants from Malaysia, China and other South Asian and Asean at the conference, which has the theme ‘Positive Energy Creates Better Opportunity.’
“We hope to create a platform that allows entrepreneurs to exchange ideas and information, incorporate more positive energy to be more competitive, and to create bigger business opportunities,” said Alice Lee, MCEC 2013 organising chairman.
Previous events such as the Malaysia-China Trade and Investment International Conference and MCEC 2012 received generous support and feedback from China and Asean countries, TNT Express Malaysia said.
“With an increasing reliance on trade, countries are also increasingly dependent on efficient and competitive means of both delivering exports to their destinations and bringing in imports from other countries,” said its managing director S.C. Chong.
This year’s theme of ‘Positive Energy Creates Better Opportunity’ could not be more apt. Entrepreneurship truly plays a vital role in this fast-changing business world, carrying with it the positive energy which is imperative in the world today,” he added.
Among the highlights would be networking and trade negotiation sessions, aimed at providing companies with a platform to discuss and seek partnerships in new projects and developments. This will be held on Nov 30 at the Marriott Putrajaya.
“After difficult times with export performance, it is a good time to illustrate the existence of positive energy; to think how to create new business opportunities with the help from the government and entrepreneurs,” said MCCC president Bong Hon Liong.
MCEC 2013 is supported by the Malaysia’s Ministry of International Trade and Industry, Economic and Commercial Counsellor's Office of the Embassy of the People’s Republic of China, Overseas Chinese Affairs Office of the State Council of the People's Republic of China, and the All-China Federation of Returned Overseas Chinese.
The conference will be conducted in both Mandarin and English (simultaneous translation). Participation fee is RM300 (US$94), and early birds will get to enjoy the special price of RM200 (US$62) for enrolment before Sept 30.
