MUSCAT — The Minister of International Trade and Industry of Malaysia, Dato Sri Mustapa bin Mohamed will lead a group of officials representing seven ministries and government agencies, as well as businessmen from over 32 companies, to Muscat on April 29-30, at Crowne Plaza Muscat for a very special event, ‘1Malaysia Promotion in Oman’.
This high-profile event is co-organised by the Embassy of Malaysia and the Malaysia External Trade Development Co-operation (MATRADE) and will be graced by Ali bin Masoud al Sunaidy, Minister of Commerce and Industry. The event will feature exhibitions and seminars as well as business matchings on trade and investment opportunities between Malaysia and Oman, particularly in the area of Tourism, Healthcare, Halal Development, Property/Real Estate, Construction, ICT, Trade and Investments.
According to the Ambassador of Malaysia to the Sultanate of Oman, Dato Rustam Yahaya, “This will be a good opportunity for local businesses and entrepreneurs to network with their Malaysian counterparts and get insights and updates from the Honourable Minister himself about Malaysia and how it can co-operate with the Sultanate.”
From a country dependent on agriculture and primary commodities, Malaysia has today become an export-driven economy spurred by high technology, knowledge-based and capital-intensive industries. This is an ideal event to share knowledge and expertise as well as enhancing business and investment opportunities between the two countries.
Dato Rustam adds, “This is an event not to be missed. I would like to call upon everyone who is interested to explore various business opportunities with Malaysia in this single event. There are plenty to choose from Malaysia, especially when our products and services are well-known all around the globe for their superior quality and reliability. Malaysia is ranked as one of the leading exporters worldwide for semiconductors, medical devices, processed food, building materials, healthcare, education, information and communication technology (ICT) and engineering services.
“Malaysian services sector has grown from strength to strength and has achieved global recognition for several landmark projects. All these testify to the high level of confidence and trust that international businesses have in us.”
According to Nor Azmi Sulong, General Manager of the organising company of the event, Al Gaith International Exhibition Co LLC (GIE), “As a Malaysian, working here for the last seven years and managing an event management company in Oman, I can see many opportunities available for both countries.”
Key Malaysian government ministries and agencies will be represented at this event to give Omanis further insights on what Malaysia has to offer and answer any queries.
