Our first physical networking event of the year was a success! The New Year’s Drinks was held at Royal Selangor Visitor Center on 13 January 2022 and was attended by the British High Commissioner to Malaysia, H.E Charles Hay MVO, BMCC Chairman Abrar A. Anwar alongside members and prospects alike.
The night started off with a welcome message from BMCC Chairman Abrar A. Anwar where he touched on overcoming the setbacks of the pandemic and how the year 2022 offers a great platform for recovery for both industries and businesses alike – with the Chamber playing a pivotal role as a facilitator through high-level engagements and advocacy. Chairman rounded up his message by wishing a safe, successful and rewarding 2022 to all in attendance.
Right after, the Chamber handed out an appreciation plaque to Mr David Ng of International SOS – who stepped down from his active role within the Chamber’s Board. Jennifer Lopez, BMCC Chief Executive Officer thanked him for his commitment, effort and contribution after 10 years of active participation and wished him well in future endeavours.
To end the night – the British High Commissioner to Malaysia, H.E Charles Hay MVO gave a short message reemphasizing the need to rebound and recover, on top of reassuring the importance of bilateral ties between the British and Malaysia and new growth areas such as green technology and digital economy.
As a wrap-up, H.E Charles Hay led the toast to the new year and the night continued with splendid food, beverages and networking opportunities.
Last but not least, we would like to take this opportunity to thank all that joined us and we look forward to the next one!
