AMIM’s Management Committee Meeting 2/2018
29 June 2018.
The second meeting of 2018 of AMIM’s Management Committee (MC) was held at Menara Boustead, KL on 29 June 2018.
The meeting was chaired by AMIM Vice President (Marine Related Industries), YBhg Dato’ Ir Ahmad Murad Omar in the absence of its President, YBhg Tan Sri Ahmad Ramli Hj Mohd Nor. It was attended by 13 MC members including those based in Miri and Sibu in Sarawak.
Against the backdrop of challenging market conditions, members are hoping for stronger support from the new government towards this industry which is of tremendous importance to the nation’s economic and strategic interests. In this regard, the role of industry associations are crucial to provide leadership and guidance to players reeling from the decade-long downturn in the marine industry amid sluggish global trade and economic growth and subdued marine-related activities such as merchant shipping, port operations and offshore energy exploration and production
AMIM hopes to spearhead efforts to lobby for policy intervention to assist members and players in the Malaysian marine industries through these testy times and to enable them to be competitive on the global stage.
In this regard, the AMIM MC – which is made up of experienced, qualified and knowledgeable figures in the local marine industries – has an important role to play to come up with strategic directions for the industry to survive these challenging times and flourish in the international scene.
