The Ministry of International Trade and Industry (MITI) organised the Anugerah Kecemerlangan Industri (AKI) 2016 or the Industry Excellence Award to recognize outstanding Malaysian companies which have achieved a certain level of excellence in the manufacturing and services sector. AKI 2016 marks the 25th Anniversary of our Industry Excellence journey. The Silver Jubilee Anniversary was held on 17 March 2017 at the MITI Tower.
The AKI was first introduced in 1991 and now uses the Business Excellence Framework (BEF) as the benchmark criteria in the evaluation process. The awards are broadly categorised under two main categories, manufacturing and services. Starting 2016, a new category which is Open Category for Multinational Companies was introduced. All winners of the categories will be automatically qualified to compete for the prestigious Prime Minister’s Award. This award is the AKI’s premier award and given in recognition of overall industry excellence.
