Sarawak's CVB wants more associations to set up shop in Kuching
S Puvaneswary, Kuching, August 24, 2017
 

The Sarawak Convention Bureau is encouraging local and foreign associations – related to key sectors the state government has identified for further development – to relocate their Asia-Pacific based offices to Kuching.

 

The bureau will provide monetary assistance by paying for the office rental space, as well as utility bills, for two years. The bureau will also allow these associations to use the meeting spaces within their office.

 


Sarawak Convention Bureau comes up with a plan 
to attract more associations

 

While the bureau welcomes all sectors, it is strongly encouraging sectors that are of the state’s special focus. This includes renewable energy, agriculture, infrastructure development, urban planning, medical, education, IT, women and children, as well as digital economy.

 

Sarawak Convention Bureau's chief operating officer, Amelia Roziman, said: “By having the Asia-Pacific offices in Sarawak, we hope to position the state as a business events friendly destination and attract more regional meetings. This will also help to strengthen the branding and marketing of Sarawak as a business events destination.”

 

So far, the bureau has attracted one association, the International Counselling Association of Malaysia, which will be setting up their office next year.
