Dialogue with the Honorable Chief Minister of Penang on “Penang 2030”

December 7, 2018 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

The Malaysian Dutch Chamber of Commerce (MDCC) is extending an invitation to AMCHAM members to join them in Penang for their  Dialogue with the Honorable Chief Minister of Penang on “Penang 2030” to be held on Friday, 7 December 2018 from 3:00 – 5:00 p.m. at the Equatorial Hotel Penang.  The Chief Minister has been requested to speak on:
  • Penang 2030 (esp. Theme 2): Upgrading the Economy to Increase Income of Households. With its sub-topics related to digital, green economy, sustainable agriculture, tourism, creative industries, and business services.
  • Industry 4.0 / Digital Economy and Talent. Topics that are very close to Penang’s economic growth and of much interest to the business community.
  • The Penang Transport Master Plan: Update on Latest Developments and Interaction between State and Private Sector on the implementation of the TMP.
To make the dialogue as practical as possible for the corporate sector, they have requested Y.A.B. Chief Minister to focus on what is required of (and what the opportunities are for) the private sector to assist the Penang State Government in bringing Penang 2030 to reality. Therefore (and as per the interest of the State Government), they would like to invite many representatives of the business community to attend. For those who attended the AMCHAM Penang Dialogue in September, this would be an opportunity to follow up on the progress of these issues.
The briefing will be complemented by practical input from various experts and followed by an interactive panel discussion and networking.
The panel will include:
  • H.E. Karin Mössenlechner (Netherlands Ambassador)
  • Dato’ Dr. Kenny Ooi Eng Hock (FMM Penang Chairman)
