Pooling the resources of PCCCI to lead Perak businesses to explore broader cooperation, trade and investment opportunities in oversea markets.
Other than ambitious key leaders, a steadily developing business association also needs to have a strong back-up team that will continuously provide the necessary support services.
Perak Chinese Chambers of Commerce and Industry (PCCCI) assistant secretary-general Ng Yok Gee has always been conscientiously playing his mediator role in the midst of relevant quarters to coordinate and mobilize the organization’s manpower and resources to ensure smooth operations of organization business as well as the various events organized by it.
Other than dedicating himself to the operation of PCCCI, Ng is also actively taking part in the operation of the parent body, the Associated Chinese Chambers of Commerce and Industry of Malaysia (ACCCIM). He is currently a central committee member of ACCCIM as well.
In April 2015, he led the ACCCIM purchasing delegation to visit the 117th China Import and Export Fair (Canton Fair) in Guangzhou, China, and several other international trade fairs and investment conferences.
He says PCCCI’s role in Perak is just the same, which is to pool together the resources of the association to lead local businesses in the state to explore broader cooperation, trade and investment opportunities in overseas markets. Among the places visited by PCCCI delegations are Cambodia, Myanmar and China.
Ng also plans to lead local businesses to take part in some international trade fairs and investment conferences in 2015, including the Canton Fair, China-Asean Expo in Nanning and the 98 CIFIT (China International Fair for Investment and Trade) in Xiamen, Eastern China Import and Export Fair, etc. each covering different areas and investment perspectives, hence meeting the diverse needs of different businesses in the state.
“Through this PCCCI platform, local businesses will gain an easy access to oversea markets such as the provincial and county governments of China, investment committee leaders and heads of investment bureaus. This will help them gain a better understanding of the investment policies and overall business climate in a particular locality. Moreover, through PCCCI’s participation in trade fairs endorsed by MATRADE, local businesses will also be entitled to trade fair allowances as well as product export incentives offered by the authorities.
Ng goes on to say that PCCCI will become a bridge linking the local businesses in Perak and the Malaysian and foreign governments, providing the latest updates on business and trade activities as well as various incentive programs available.
A diligent and persistent man, Ng says he often has to handle several things at the same time but for the sake of PCCCI and local Chinese businesses in Perak, he will never back down or regret.
