By Alycia Lee

 

February 12, 2019, is another exciting day! FMM received a courtesy visit from UAE delegation from Mohammad Omar Bin HaiderHolding Group (MOBH) PSC, a UAE based company. MOBH is one of Dubai’s leading business groups with diversified holdings spanning multiple industries and geographies.

 

Its CEO and Chairman; Mr. Mohammad Omar Bin Haider, a well-known public figure and businessman in various organizations in UAE, sent his representatives Mr. Abdo Kayali, General Manager for International Relations and Dr. Naji Bou Fakhreddine, Business Development Director to explore the potential business opportunities in Malaysia and other ASEAN countries. We had an excellent maiden discussion into their proposed sectors of interest which includes agriculture, healthcare, aerospace, pharmaceutical, steel, and hospitality.

 

I was among the representatives from SMI, Youth and Entrepreneurship Committee (SYEC) together with Dr.Yeoh, CEO of FMM to receive Dr. Naji and Mr. Abdu.

On 31 Jan 2019, I had a great opportunity to meet with Mr. Adul Chotinisakorn, Director General of Department of Foreign Trade, Ministry of Commerce of Thailand and his team at Four Seasons Hotel in Kuala Lumpur. They introduce the Young Entrepreneurs Network Development Program (Yen D-Program) to the Federation of Malaysian Manufacturers (FMM) and other local chambers and leading trade associations. The event was relevant and meaningful to FMMSMI, Youth and Entrepreneurship which I was among the representatives of the FMM working committee.

 

During the briefing session, we were enlightened with its main objective which aims to develop the Thailand-Malaysia economy on the basis of building and supporting new young entrepreneurs. This platform leads to creating a competitive advantage among entrepreneurs within the network to operate their business in a collaborative manner.

Apart from building a strong network for young entrepreneurs, it also expands their business perspective to invest in emerging business opportunity and formulate competitive strategies in different market situations to increase trading and investing collaboration. This is proven after a series of successful collaboration with Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam and Myanmar, Thailand is currently seeking collaboration with us through working with local trade associations and explore in any potential that could be a foundation to work on.

Another great point of this program is Thailand is sponsoring an All Expenses Paid to 30 young entrepreneurs to participate in this programme in Bangkok and Kanchanapuri Province. Those interested to register with Thai Embassy Kuala Lumpur and application ends on 26 April 2019. The programme helps to equip the participants’ frameworks and essential tools to their business strategy formulation in this digital era.  I strongly believe this great starter pack is definitely a not to be missed opportunity for our local entrepreneurs to be successful and thrive in this fast-changing environment.
