BMCC’s Malaysian business delegation returns to KL after a week spent in Liverpool at the world’s largest business event - the International Festival for Business (IFB 2016).

The BMCC led a Malaysian business delegation to the first week of the IFB 2016 which centralised on the theme of Manufacturing. Areas such as science & innovation, professional services, infrastructure & logistics and international skills were expounded as the core enablers across Britain's manufacturing industry. Chancellor of the Exchequer, Rt. Hon. George Osborne MP, marked the start of the festival. In his speech to a packed audience of UK and international delegates, he said: “IFB2016 is a celebration of business; it allows UK businesses to reach out around the world, selling what we make and creating jobs and investment in the country.” Other notable visitors during the first week included the Business Secretary Rt. Hon. Sajid Javid, Minister for Trade & Investment Lord Price and many successful leaders of British manufacturing industries. The delegation also met with Richard Graham MP, Prime Minister’s Trade Envoy to Malaysia who spoke affectionately about his role as trade envoy and praised Malaysia for the enormous level of growth it has achieved in recent years.
