KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 8 (Bernama) — The East Coast Economic Region (ECER) is eyeing a bigger share of Chinese investments by further promoting the vast business opportunities available in the region during the Malaysia-China Entrepreneur Conference (MCEC) 2012 on Saturday.
ECER plans to build strong brand awareness, increase business networking and invite investors from China together with the local Chinese business community to invest in the region.
The East Coast Economic Region Development Council Chief Executive Officer Datuk Jebasingam Issace John said the MCEC 2012 was a suitable platform to promote ECER and the 1,500 acres Malaysia-China Kuantan Industrial Park (MCKIP).
In addition to MCKIP, other key projects in ECER that are being promoted are Gambang Halal Park, Palm Oil Industrial Cluster and Kertih BioPolymer Park, he said.
“We will be leveraging on ECER’s strategic positioning as the ideal investment gateway to the Asean and Asia-Pacific markets, which have a combined population of four billion and gross domestic product of US$17 trillion.
“Moreover, this is a good opportunity for the council to raise awareness among China investors on investment opportunities that are available in the region,” Jebasingam said in a statement
