AMIM held its 21st Annual General Meeting (AGM at Hotel Istana, Kuala Lumpur on 26 March 2018. The meeting was attended by a total of 42 representatives of the association’s members and their proxies.
During his opening remarks, AMIM President YBhg Tan Sri Ahmad Ramli Hj Mohd Nor who is also Managing Director of AMIM member, Boustead Naval Shipyard, reiterated the need for members to continue supporting the association to make it more active and relevant.
This, said Tan Sri Ramli, is important in light of the challenging times faced by the industry and the plethora of developments and issues faced by players that are detrimental to their interest, business and even survival. He said that as an association with limited resources, AMIM can only step up to the plate to safeguard the interests of its members and champion the cause to elevate Malaysia’s marine industries to greater heights with the strong and continuous support from its members.
During the meeting, members were briefed by the Secretariat about the formation of seven sub-committees within AMIM to act as a platform to deliberate issues and developments in various sectors in the marine industries. The sub-committees cover Fisheries Boat Modernization Government Shiprepair Tariff, Government Procurement Policy, GST, Marine Training, Yachting Industry and Industrial Revolution 4.0. They provide a platform for AMIM members and players in the respective sectors to deliberate issues and discuss developments and bring up suggestions to AMIM’s Management Committee to take up with the appropriate parties. In this manner, AMIM can be more active in pursuing issues and matters of interest and benefit for its members as the membership of the sub committees consist of AMIM members who volunteer their time to be in them.
The meeting started at 3.00 PM and adjourned at 5.00 PM. Members went away with renewed vigour and commitment to make AMIM a more prominent association that lives up to its designation as the Industry Lead Body for the shipbuilding / ship repair industry and standing as the national focal point for Malaysia’s marine industry.
