AMIM plays a central role in the development of the nation’s SBSR industry. AMIM takes this role seriously and often play key roles in highlighting issues aimed at enhancing and strengthening the development of national SBSR industry.
Since our inception in 1984, AMIM has had extensive experience in leadership, knowledge and comprehension, connectivity, networking and engagements in the SBSR industry. AMIM is recognised as an NGO representing and serving 50 Malaysian SBSR companies and 40 marine-related or support service companies that are members of AMIM, the Malaysian SBSR industry, government, the nation and citizens of Malaysia.
AMIM has been campaigning for the extension of the Bona Fide Status (tax exemption) and the revision of Lampiran 1 of the Bona Fide Status. The Bona Fide Status will enable the SBSR industry in Malaysia to compete at an equal level playing field with other nations.
AMIM supports the enforcement of Malaysia Build for Malaysia initiative. This requires all government departments and government-linked companies (GLCs) to strictly adhere to the “Buy Malaysia First” or “Malaysian Made” policy.
AMIM is striving to improve financial facilities and for a special incentive to be given to finance and fund only vessels that are built in Malaysia.
AMIM has also been campaigning for the reinstatement of SBSR as promoted activities and to extend and enhance tax incentives such as Pioneer Status, Reinvestment Tax Allowance and Investment Tax Allowance.
As the only national industry organisation representing SBSR and marine-related industry players in Malaysia, AMIM plays a central role in the development of the nation’s SBSR industry.
