Members’ Briefing hosted by International SOS

AMCHAM member, International SOS hosted our August Members Briefing at their offices allowing attendees an exclusive tour of their facilities and opportunity to learn about the important support  International SOS provides to many of our member companies and others.

Immediately following the tour, Ramzi Toubassy CEO of AmMetLife delivered his first welcome remarks as our new President. For those who are not familiar with Ramzi, he’s is a prominent personality in Malaysia and other parts of Asia and brings with him over 20 years of industry experience. Ramzi was appointed as Chief Executive Officer for AmMetLife Insurance Berhad in 2014. This was a great opportunity for members to get to know him a little better.

Siobhan Das, Executive Director of AMCHAM updated members on what AMCHAM has been up to in the last couple of months. We’ve been busy with various meetings with the government, MITI in particular, in the last couple of weeks. We’d like to once again emphasize the importance of keeping AMCHAM abreast of what’s happening in your industry so that we can provide timely support when needed.

Nat Turner, Economic Counsellor of U.S. Embassy Kuala Lumpur also briefed members on what’s happening in Washington, current business, economic climate, incoming Embassy officials, recent senior U.S. Governmental official visits to  Malaysia.

AMCHAM would like to thank all our members for coming together at this monthly event and we hope to see more of you in the future. A special thank you to International SOS for hosting us. The next Briefing will be on Tuesday, Oct 3rd, Mark your calendars now.
