KUALA LUMPUR: The Works Ministry wants Malaysian construction industry players to export their products and services to become competitive globally. 

Its minister, Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu, said to achieve this, training programmes and international exposure through promotion of the industry had to take place. 

“Industry players must look for opportunities available both locally and overseas,'' he said at the opening of the 20th Malaysia International Building Exposition 2003 (Malbex 2003).  

The exhibition, jointly organised by Reed Exhibitions Sdn Bhd and the Construction Industry Development Board (CIDB) Malaysia, attracted 248 companies. 

Samy Vellu said the design, development, commercialisation and effective technology diffusion consisting of new building products, systems, applications and services were key drivers for the growth of the industry.
