With the theme ‘Bridging Gaps, Building Opportunities’, MIDA in collaboration with CIDB organised a Specialised Building Materials Supply Chain Conference on 16 March 2017 at MIDA HQ, which was attended by over 600 participants.
Given the on-going robust infrastructure development in Malaysia, there are many opportunities for our local building material suppliers to participate in mega development projects that are well underway in the country. Malaysian products and companies are scattered all over the globe. This underscores the capabilities of the industry players and service providers that the country has.
The Conference featured the signing of three Memorandums of Understanding (MoUs) between Forest City with Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM), Kumpulan Pendidikan Yayasan Pelajaran Johor (KPYPJ) and Lafarge. There were also two presentations namely ‘Construction Supply Chain – Winning in a Transforming Industry’ and ‘Opportunities and Capabilities of Malaysian Manufacturers’. A briefing on ‘Business Linkages Opportunities’ and a forum discussion on ‘Local Suppliers Capabilities’ as well as several business meetings were also held.
