Meeting with U.S. Customs Border and Protection

On 1 June 2022, AMCHAM hosted the U.S. Customs Border and Protection (CBP) leadership for an industry briefing and Q&A session at the AMCHAM Executive Office. The U.S. CBP delegation to Malaysia was led by John P. Leonard, Deputy Executive Assistant Commissioner and together with the Executive Director for Trade Remedy Law Enforcement, Eric Choy.

The delegation shared Malaysia-specific concerns of forced labour, transhipment and anti-dumping to the crowd of 50 in-person attendees, who came from various industries such as E&E, rubber gloves and rubber products, food, furniture, agriculture, etc. Thank you to our fellow Chamber and trade association partners for disseminating this program to the other industry players.

AMCHAM is grateful to the U.S. CBP for providing AMCHAM with the opportunity to host an interactive session with Malaysian manufacturers and exporters who are exporting or looking into exporting to the United States. AMCHAM is committed to enhancing the good working relationship with the U.S. CBP as Malaysian exports to the U.S. continue to increase yearly and facilitate issues around trade enforcement and facilitation.
