The Embassy of Sweden in Malaysia, Business Sweden & MASBA, recently further strengthened their close cooperation by together presenting the first Networking Evening at the prestigious Royal Selangor Golf Club in central Kuala Lumpur.
In spite of the heavy tropical rainstorm almost 60 MASBA members and other guests attended the evening, among them the Nordic Ambassadors and colleagues from the other Nordic business councils.
The keynote speaker, Mr. Wan Saiful Wan Jan, Chief Executive, Institute for Democracy and Economics Affairs (IDEAS), certainly captured the interest of the audience by his informative talk about Malaysian Politics and Economy: an Update. The Q&A session following his speech was particularly active and went on far past the allocated time.
Mr. Wan Saiful’s openness and directness sparkled continuous lively discussions between the guests all through the delicious cocktail buffet, which was served until late hours.
A special thank you was expressed to the two generous sponsors, Asian Tigers and Nordea Bank S.A., Singapore, both very well respresented during the event.
As Mr. Hans Björnered, MASBA President, indicated during his address, it is the intention to hold evenings of this kind at least twice annually in the future. Successful
