Chinese chamber to study issues discussed during Bumiputra Economic Congress 2024

PETALING JAYA: A special committee will be set up to study issues brought up during the Bumiputra Economic Congress 2024, says the Associated Chinese Chambers of Commerce and Industry of Malaysia (ACCCIM).

Its president, Tan Sri Datuk Low Kian Chuan, said that the special committee aims to provide more detailed suggestions and feedback to the government following the congress.

According to a statement on Saturday (March 2), Low said ACCCIM advocates a more holistic and inclusive approach to addressing the country's economic problems, which focuses on the needs of vulnerable groups from all races.

"The presentations of several groups in the congress have shown a proactive and inclusive view that encourages entrepreneurial spirit, the courage to step out of the comfort zone and emphasises the need to adapt to a need-based approach and effective resource allocation," Low said in the statement.

Low added that a collective approach was also needed to expand the Malaysian economic "cake" further by ensuring the importance of inclusive talent and educational development.

"Every Malaysian should have the same opportunity to contribute to the development and progress of our country.

"It is the key to strengthening the country's competitiveness at the international level. Every talent that can be developed should receive attention, and our country should try to stop the outflow of national talents," he added.

The congress that was held from Feb 29 to March 2 also saw participation from business chambers from different races as well.
