PETALING JAYA: The National Chamber of Commerce and Industry Malaysia (NCCIM) will work together with the Malaysia External Trade Development Corp (Matrade) to look for non-traditional markets for Malaysian business ventures.
Non-traditional markets being considered by NCCIM’s newly appointed president, Datuk Ter Leong Yap, include Africa.
Datuk Ter Leong Yap replaces former NCCIM president, Datuk Syed Ali Alattas, whose five two-year terms have come to an end. Datuk Ter Leong Yap is also president of the Associated Chinese Chambers of Commerce and Industry of Malaysia (ACCCIM).
In addition to NCCIM’s role in promoting commerce and investments as well as opening new frontiers, it works with the Government in matters pertaining to government initiatives on the trade and commerce industry of the nation.
For example, NCCIM continues to be involved in discussions with the Government over measures to promote economic growth, and has been involved in the tabling of the federal budget as well as the national economic plan.
On Dec 15, NCCIM will host a business forum with Sri Lankan president Maithripala Sirisena, whereby business matchings and trade investments with Sri Lanka will be promoted.
NCCIM comprises five constituent chambers – the Malay Chamber of Commerce Malaysia, ACCCIM, the Malaysian Associated Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry, the Malaysian International Chamber of Commerce and Industry, as well as the Federation of Malaysian Manufacturers.
