The British Malaysian Chamber of Commerce (BMCC) has revealed the launch of a brand-new initiative – the Sterling Member Spotlight: Meet the CEO interview series. This initiative seeks to enrich the profile and brand distinction of the existing BMCC Sterling members; this is in a bid to enable the CEOs of the Sterling members to share their perspectives on their organisations and their investment in Malaysia and the UK thus far with further affiliates and stakeholders within the Chamber network.
We are delighted to announce that the ABAC® Center of Excellence Limited has been invited to be featured in this exclusive series; this is an amazing opportunity to learn more about our CEO Zafar Anjum and the milestones ABAC® has achieved since its establishment. The interview will be conducted in a Q&A structure and will be showcased on BMCC’s personal digital platforms including the BMCC corporate website. Click the button below to find out more.
Who is BMCC?
Established in 1963, the British Malaysian Chamber of Commerce (BMCC) has been driven by the sole ordinance of advancing bilateral trade relations between the United Kingdom and Malaysia. Even tracing back to the 16th century, Britain and Malaysia are known to have shared a long history of diplomatic ties and successful trade relations. The BMCC is a part of this history. Over the past five decades, the BMCC has been a catalyst in providing businesses with networking events, branding & exposure, trade services and industry advocacy.
“In upholding the pillars of our organisation, we are constantly seeking to provide beneficial services and utmost support for our members”.
The BMCC is also a member of the BiSEA (Britain in Southeast Asia) network, a group of ten British Chambers and Business Councils across the Southeast Asian region aimed at developing effective relationships between British Chambers of Commerce within ASEAN to further facilitate business opportunities for their members. Today, the BMCC has firmly rooted itself as one of Southeast Asia’s most prolific Chambers; not only that but members of the BMCC include some of the largest exporters of produce, manufacturing, and services from the United Kingdom, as well as some of the most influential Malaysian companies that have shaped the nation’s economic landscape.
