Briefing Session on Supporting U.S. Business: Johor’s Ecosystem

On 6 July, AMCHAM held a briefing in Johor with representatives from the Iskandar Regional Development Authority (IRDA) and Malaysia Investment Development Authority (MIDA) Singapore on the ecosystem for U.S. business in Johor. On his very first trip to Johor, HE Brian McFeeters, U.S. Ambassador to Malaysia, attended this briefing.
