The first (TCN-Bio) meeting/forum was successfully held in December 2009. It saw a convergence of the various stakeholders in the biotechnology and life sciences commercialisation value chain. Those who registered their interest to be part of the network comprised of Industry Players (35%), Institutes of Higher Learning and Research Institutes (25%), Financial Sectors (12%), Government Linked Companies and Agencies (10%), Science Parks, the Legal Fraternity and others.

In line with the government’s efforts to encourage and foster innovation and as we approach the Science to Business Phase of implementing the National Biotechnology Policy, there is necessarily greater emphasis on the commercialisation of technologies and research outcomes, generation of spin-off companies, entrepreneurship development and strengthening of global business readiness. TCN-Bio is therefore, aimed at building a conducive ecosystem for participants to enhance their network base, communicate and collaborate to encourage and increase the rates of commercialisation in the country especially in the biotechnology and life sciences sectors.

We look forward to receiving your confirmation of attendance by 3 December 2010 (Friday).

29th MAJECA-JAMECA Joint Conference (25th November, 2010)

I am pleased to inform you that MAJECA will be hosting the 29th MAJECA-JAMECA Joint Conference on 25th November 2010 at the Prince Hotel & Residences, Jalan Conlay, Kuala Lumpur.

Since its inception on November 14, 1977, MAJECA and JAMECA had worked together to deepen and strengthen the economic relations between Japan and Malaysia, by bringing together the private sectors of both countries through an annual economic forum to discuss topics and issues covering trade, investment, tourism and matters relating to the development of the bilateral ties between the two countries.

Over the 33 years of existence, MAJECA has played a lead role to attract FDI from Japan into Malaysia. With the implementation of the Malaysia-Japan Economic Partnership Agreement (MJEPA), MAJECA will continue with efforts and pursue new initiatives to position Malaysia as the preferred investment destination for the Japanese investing community; noting in particular, the keen competition posed by our neighbouring countries.

In April this year, Prime Minister YAB Dato’ Sri Mohd Najib Haji Tun Abdul Razak had addressed top Japanese business people and key industrialists at a Roundtable Meeting in Tokyo, in conjunction with his official visit to Japan. The Roundtable Meeting was coordinated by MAJECA and organized by our counterpart in Japan i.e. JAMECA. Tremendous interest was generated as a result of the Roundtable Meeting, and MAJECA would like to follow-up on this and have obtained a strong commitment from JAMECA to mobilize a high-level delegation from Japan to attend this upcoming 29th Joint Conference.

For this year’s Joint Conference, we have drawn up a Programme to dovetail the New Economic Model and the Economic Transformation Programme (ETP). This is done with a view to inform the Japanese and to tap their expertise in selected areas, and create awareness of business opportunities arising therefrom, thus increasing the potential for business collaboration between Japan and Malaysia. The preliminary programme for the 29th Joint Conference is attached for your reference.

As you may know, Economic Transformation Programme (ETP) was launched on 25th October 2010. The ETP is the culmination of a substantial body of work to develop the Government’s economic agenda, building on the 10th Malaysia Plan, the New Economic Model (NEM), and the principles of 1Malaysia, People First, Performance Now. Twelve National Key Economic Areas (NKEAs) have been identified in the 10th Malaysia Plan – the NKEA is a driver of economic activity that has the potential to directly and materially contribute to a quantifiable amount of economic growth.

The Performance Management and Delivery Unit (PEMANDU) under the Prime Minister’s Office is in charge of the ETP. The ETP will kick-start Malaysia’s drive towards high-income nation status with 131 entry point projects and 60 business opportunities. Dato’ Sri Idris Jala, the CEO of PEMANDU, in his presentation on the ETP Open Day on 21st September 2010, had said that the private sector will be the main driver of the ETP. There were 131 entry point projects (EPPs) identified at the initial stage, of which 7 would be launched in the new financial year. The majority of the projects would be implemented under a public-private partnership (PPP) model.

MAJECA is pleased to extend an invitation to you and your senior officers of your organization to participate in the 29th Joint Conference. A high level Japanese delegation comprising the Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director level of leading Japanese companies, led by Mr Mikio Sasaki, Chairman of Mitsubishi Corporation, will be participating in this conference.

This event presents excellent networking potential to get acquainted with these Japanese companies for business collaboration.

A response slip is attached for your use.

I look forward to your participation and support.

Thank you.

Yours sincerely

Dato’ Haji Mohamed Iqbal
Hon. Secretary

MAJECA Business Mission to Yokohama and Tokyo, Japan (3rd – 8th October, 2010)

MAJECA, in collaboration with the Japan External Trade Organisation (JETRO) Malaysia, and with the endorsement of MATRADE, will be organising a business mission to Yokohama and Tokyo, Japan from 3 to 8 October 2010.

A Japanese consultant company offering advisory services to companies who are interested in the Japanese market has this to say:

“The Japanese market has proved to be the world’s most profitable for many companies, most notably designer brands such as Louis Vuitton, Christian Dior and Prada etc. but also for a second tier of much smaller specialist component, product and service suppliers. Entry into the Japanese market can be one of the most profitable business decisions you ever make. Successful Japanese market entry needs a sales oriented understanding of the Japanese market, an achievable 3 – 5 year business strategy and clear cost and budget control policies. Taking the time to fully understand the Japanese market opportunities for your products and services, putting in place a sustainable and achievable strategy and ensuring that value will be returned from every Yen spent, prior to “pouring concrete” in your Japanese market entry are three of the key insider secrets to successfully setting up and doing business in Japan.”

Malaysian companies looking into market entry into Japan are encouraged to take this excellent opportunity of participating in the business mission as our co-organiser JETRO, as well as MATRADE and MIDA offices in Tokyo, would be able to give sound and good advice as to how to do successful business in Japan.

We have attached herewith a promotional flyer on the business mission as well as the registration form for your perusal and completion. Interested companies are urged to register early to give our counterpart organisations adequate time to locate and invite suitable Japanese companies to meet you.
