Government Relations

Over the next few months, The American Malaysian Chamber of Commerce (AMCHAM), the “Voice for the U.S. businesses in Malaysia”, is looking to expand its government relations function.

Roles in this area will work directly with executives and staff from over 260 member companies to identify trade and investment-related issues affecting American investors in Malaysia, and to develop realistic and practical recommendations that AMCHAM can propose to decision-makers in various federal and local Malaysian government entities, as well as other stakeholders. Critical to the success of working in this function area is the ability to be able to quickly grasp technical matters, and have the ability to communicate them to non-technical people.

This is a high-paced and often shifting environment where attention to detail is required along with excellent written and verbal communication skills.  Candidates should have the ability to deal with a steep learning curve on a wide spectrum of issues.

Needed are people with the ability to work as an effective team player supporting program and communication functions internally to deliver the Chambers objectives. Relevant degree in business, economics, law, politics, international relations or equivalent qualification.

A position at an AmCham is an opportunity to grow into a career that engages with corporate policymakers especially those interested in global trade and the economies of Southeast Asia. Minimum 2 years of related work. Internships are also available.
