"We look forward to collaborating with Business Events Sarawak as they elevate the influence of business events and Malaysia's profile as a destination."
The MOU calls for business events training and education to help showcase Sarawak's unique value proposition to international associations and corporate markets in addition to developing the local meetings industry.
"Sarawak has already begun its quest to position business events as economic and community game-changers in the region through the Legacy Impact Programme" said Datuk Haji Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah, Minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture, Sarawak and Minister of Youth and Sports, Sarawak.
"The program is focused on four pillars of legacies which are Advancing the Field, Community Benefits, Economic Outcome and Public Policy; driven by 27 drivers."
