Star Media Group (SMG) is ready to be the link that connects the private sector to the government to exchange ideas and promote economic growth in Penang.

SMG chief executive officer Alex Yeow said that as a media agency, the company hoped to play an important role between the government and private sector.

He said this after a private dinner with Penang Yang di-Pertua Negeri Tun Ahmad Fuzi Abdul Razak.

Yeow said the casual session with the governor was held to get to know each other better.

“All captains of industries enjoyed the personal interaction with Tun Ahmad Fuzi.

“We hope to have more opportunities to collaborate and organise interactive sessions so that the views of business heads and corporate leaders can be shared directly with Tun Ahmad Fuzi,” he said after the dinner in George Town, Penang.

The two-hour session also saw a cake-cutting ceremony to celebrate Tun Ahmad Fuzi’s 73rd birthday.

Yeow then presented a mock cheque for SMG’s contribution of RM31,350 to Yayasan Amal Tuan Yang Terutama Yang di-Pertua Negeri Pulau Pinang.

Among those present were PKT Logistics Group chief executive and managing director Datuk Seri Dr Michael Tio, Yusuf Taiyoob Sdn Bhd founder Datuk Seri Yusuf Taiyoob, Success Transformer Corporation Bhd executive director Datuk Tan Wei Neng, Penang Development Corporation corporate division head Azhar Mohd Zamri Khoo, NI Malaysia managing director Selvam Chinappan, Infineon Technologies managing director Gark Cheejin, Swift Bridge Technologies managing director Chong Soon Kheng, Micron factory automation and smart manufacturing director Azhar Md Nayan as well as SMG client brand marketing general manager Simone Liong.
