THE state government, through the Penang Green Council (PGC), will once again organise the Penang Green Finance Conference this year.
The conference, which will be held on Dec 13 and 14 at G Hotel in George Town, was held virtually last year.
PGC general manager Josephine Tan Mei Ling said the conference was open to all business owners, project developers, financial planners and advisors, project managers and policymakers.
“This year’s conference is aimed at facilitating the in-flow of green investments and capital into the state.
“Green finance is important as it facilitates and supports sustainable development and financial flow into the environmental sector,” she said, as reported by Buletin Mutiara.“It also plays a key role in activating and scaling up green transformation on the ground.”
Tan also said that this would be Penang’s very first physical green finance conference bringing together speakers from Bank Negara Malaysia, Securities Commission Malaysia, Capital Markets Malaysia, Maybank, CIMB Bank, UOB Malaysia, Funding Societies and Ata Plus Sdn Bhd.
“There will also be a series of product presentations, panel discussions, matchmaking and networking sessions where participants can explore and deep dive into various green financing instruments available,” she added.
