IN hopes of building better rapport, the Subang Jaya Municipal Council (MPSJ) organised an inaugural get-together with members of the corporate sector in areas under its jurisdiction recently.

About 80 corporate representatives attended the event at MPSJ headquarters in Subang Jaya.

Council president Datuk Asmawi Kasbi said the session allowed corporate representatives to interact with council members.

“The corporate sector representatives will get to understand the projects that will be implemented by the council.

“Since last year, MPSJ has started efforts to transform the city into a dynamic and vibrant township in line with the council’s tagline, MPSJ – A Vibrant City,” he said, inviting the corporate sector to work hand-in-hand to implement 11 recommended corporate social responsibility initiatives.

Some of the corporate representatives felt that less bureaucratic red tape and an increased council participation in corporate events would benefit the corporate sector.

CapitaMalls Malaysia Trust marketing communications executive Edmund Lee hoped for smoother licence applications for events.

“As we organise a lot of events, swift approvals would be very helpful,” he said.

Mamee-Double Decker (M) Bhd marketing manager Mohammad Fadli Mohammad Hafetz said MPSJ should implement more projects to promote cleanliness and safety.

“MPSJ should create more awareness on the importance of cleanliness and security for a dynamic township,” he said.

The get-together also saw the launch of the Who’s Who Under the Administration of MPSJ encyclopaedia.

The Malaysian Tourism Book of Records Sdn Bhd chief executive officer Azman Yusoff said the book was only launched for MPSJ and the Shah Alam City Council.

“The business and corporate sector is the backbone of a council’s economy and it is a good platform for the public as well as investors to learn about businesses in the area.

“The encyclopaedia aims to support businesses in the particular area and contains selected companies’ history, corporate information, products, as well as future plans.

“I plan to expand this initiative to other local authorities soon,” he said.
