AMBC Meeting with MATRADE

In March this year, AMBC Victoria held a round-table briefing with our manufacturing members as we were aware of a number of concerns that our members were having in dealing with Malaysian authorities (either as manufacturers in Malaysia or exporters to Malaysia).  The round-table highlighted problems associated with dealing with local Malaysian banks and government departments and the collection of the 6% GST.

Manufacturing members and the manufacturing sub-committee chaired by Vice President Mike Anderson, have a meeting with representatives from MATRADE and MIDA on Thursday 25 May, 2017 from 10:00am to 12:00 noon at MATRADE Melbourne – Level 7, 432 St Kilda Road, Melbourne – to discuss the issues raised.
