PETALING JAYA: At least 1,500 local business leaders and 3,000 overseas delegates will attend the 17th World Chinese Entrepreneurs Convention (WCEC), which will be organised by The Associated Chinese Chambers of Commerce and Industry of Malaysia (ACCCIM).

The event which will take place from Sept 9 to 11 this year at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre will see delegates from Asia, Europe, Middle East, North and South America, Oceania and Africa attending the convention.

The convention will revolve around the theme “Reimagineering the Future”, and will address ongoing global trends and issues including structural shifts in global political, economic and financial order, disruptive technology, diversity and inclusion, and climate change.

The goal is to equip participants with deeper insights and understanding into the future direction of the global environment, allowing them to plan ahead and ensure sustainability in their business operations.

The WCEC will also feature business matching sessions for business leaders and experts to network and seek opportunities to partner and collaborate.

“This convention also provides the opportunity to showcase Malaysia’s boundless business opportunities and its alluring status as Asia’s multi-diversity wonderland, particularly as we gear up for the Visit Malaysia Year 2026,” said ACCCIM president Tan Sri Low Kian Chuan at a media briefing session held at a hotel here.

Among those who attended the briefing were ACCCIM members, business partners and senior media representatives.

The convention is a good platform for business leaders, professionals and policy makers to share ideas and gain insights and create connections.

“My team and I will ensure a world-class enlightening and engaging convention, considering our proven track record of hosting the 7th WCEC in 2003,” said Low who is also the organising chairman of the 17th WCEC.

“Together, let us reimagine the future of business landscape and forge enduring connections and collaborations, making our country and the world a better place of doing business,” added Low.
