Melaka CM hopes for closer cooperation with MCCCI in bringing investments into state

MELAKA: The Melaka Chinese Chambers of Commerce and Industry (MCCCI) must strengthen its ongoing working relationship with the state government in wooing foreign and domestic investments, says Datuk Seri Sulaiman Md Ali.

The Chief Minister said MCCCI could help to promote the state as a gateway for businesses and attract quality investments from various parts of the globe and within the country.

“We can work in tandem into attracting investments into Melaka and the 110-year-old MCCCI can play its role to introduce our proven ecosystem to bring in investors,” he said after the opening of the MCCCI building at Taman Melaka Raya here on Friday (June 24).

The building had undergone an RM2.5mil facelift.

International Trade and Industry Deputy Minister Datuk Lim Ban Hong and Melaka unity, community relationship, human resource and consumer’s affair committee chairman Ngwe Hee Sem were among those present during the event.

Sulaiman said the state was confident of returning as the top investment hub despite facing challenges in attracting investments due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

“It’s crucial for the state government to work closely with various partners especially with MCCCI to woo investors,” he added.

Sulaiman also hoped that the local Malay and Indian Chambers of Commerce would also work closely with the state government in synergising cooperation into attracting investors to the state.
