AMCHAM 47th Annual General Meeting Luncheon

On June 25, AMCHAM held its 47th Annual General Meeting (AGM) Luncheon at the Sheraton Hotel Kuala Lumpur.

Y.A.B. Dato’ Seri Anwar bin Ibrahim, Prime Minister of Malaysia, and Y.B. Senator Tengku Datuk Seri Utama Zafrul Tengku Abdul Aziz, Minister for Investment, Trade, and Industry, graced AMCHAM’s signature program with their presence. 

The Prime Minister delivered a keynote address that underscored the importance of talent, ongoing investments, and strong international trade relationships and acknowledged the role of the United States in Malaysia’s growth.  

He said, “Malaysia has seen a phenomenal increase in investments from the United States. The advantage to us [has been] through their transfer technology and training and the centers of excellence; therefore, I’m going to those present today to acknowledge and thank you for your confidence. We appeal to you to [continue] to give [us] all the support necessary. We will not only facilitate, but accelerate, the process.” he added, “We will have to respond very fast in terms of providing expertise to our people.”

During the dialogue session, Prime Minister Anwar highlighted that AMCHAM members have gone beyond trade and investment and have focused strongly on comprehensive training programs within the country and work with our communities in these areas to “foster trust, understanding, and respect – core values of the Madani economic framework”, Anwar stated. 

This event is a testament to AMCHAM’s commitment to being a collaborative partner where open dialogue can move things forward. It was made more significant by the presence of our distinguished guest, H.E. Edgard D. Kagan, U.S. Ambassador to Malaysia.
