Sarawak commits to growing business events

The government of the Malaysian state of Sarawak has announced it will enhance its social infrastructures to support the growth of business events in the region.

Sarawak’s chief minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg said business events are important components to not only promote but to develop Sarawak as a destination.

He commented: “The government has invested a lot of funds to upgrade the state’s facilities in order to provide accommodation, event venues and recreational facilities to promote Sarawak as a destination for business events.”

The announcement comes following Sarawak’s first business events conference, TriBE 2018, which was held the previous week.

An initiative of Sarawak Convention Bureau (SCB), TriBE 2018 drew 300 selected business events experts from national associations, sector partners, global and national media. They attended educational sessions and the 9thAnak Sarawak Awards.

Chairman of SCB, YB Tan Sri Dato’ Sri Dr.Muhammad Leo Michael Toyad Abdullah, acknowledged the importance of recognition: “With the Anak Sarawak Awards as an affirmation of excellence, we can empower the current passionate sector partners, and incubate new talents.”
