Selangor State Investment Council to organise science expo next month

THE Selangor State Investment Council (SSIC), in its search for highly skilled and innovative human resources, is organising the Selangor Science, Innovation and Technology Exhibition (Sitex) next month.

SSIC chief executive officer Hasan Azhari Idris said intense competition and changing business environment made it necessary to invest in technology in scientific, technical, commercial and financial matters.

“New ideas and solutions are a must to progress. We must keep reinventing our business environment and the approaches in the market place,” he said.

Sitex will be held from April 4 to 6 at the Shah Alam Convention Centre (SACC). The exhibition aims at providing a suitable platform for researchers, scientists and companies to showcase their products to buyers and investors.

There will be 124 booths and a national-level architecture design competition will be held for secondary school and university students.

Hasan said the exhibition, besides being a marketing and networking channel, would also help build business ties among participants.

“It will provide an opportunity for participants to showcase new products and services to visitors. Our aim is to promote Selangor as a centre of growth for businesses and knowledge based industries,” he said.

“It also creates a platform for the corporate sector to showcase their latest products and services and is a channel for marketing, collaborating and forming partnerships with other organisations, both locally and internationally,” said Hasan.

Sitex will also include seminars on research and development (R&D) as well as product design competitions.

Apart from business related programmes, Hasan said the exhibition will provide a platform for the students to showcase their works and gain exposure.
