Champagne Popping at MASBA 20th Anniversary

Thursday 14 September 2006 the Malaysian-Swedish Business Association (MASBA) was celebrating the 20th anniversary of the association with 65 members and guests at Ambassador Helena Sångeland’s residence in conjunction with the annual dinner in Kuala Lumpur.
In his speech President Nils Nordh looked back over the 20 years the association has existed, ending up with popping the champagne corks and serving all guests a glass of bubbly… much to the delight of all.
On the more serious side was a talk by Handelsbanken Singapore with an overview of the global economy and its future.
In a brief interview after the event President Nils Nordh, who has been the President for almost 8 years, confided that the association during the years has had its ups and downs:
“After 10 years we had a major revamp, sorting out papers, communication and so on but for the last number of years we’ve had the blessings of having the services of some great Swedish ladies. On a voluntary basis a number of ladies have been heading our office over the years dealing with our day to day business and we’re now running a smooth operation.”
 “We have 60-70 Swedish member companies in Malaysia and these days we have a very good mix of social and business activities.”
 “One very interesting upcoming event is a visit to Port Klang in November where we’re expecting to take a closer look at the Swedish-Indian ship “Götheborg” owned by SOIC AB. The ship is built according to a historic model and mainly with traditional materials and methods”, Mr. Nordh said.
