GREAT SUCCESS - 2nd  MASBA Networking Evening in cooperation with the Embassy of Sweden, Business Sweden, Tuesday 23 September 2014

After two successful events one may say that the Networking Evenings hosted by MASBA jointly with the Embassy of Sweden and Business Sweden, have become a tradition. We would like to in this way, thank all members and other guests for once more coming to the lovely RSGC for this very special function. We hope we can count on your overwhelming support also in the future.  

The Nordic and EU Ambassadors continue to honour us with their presence, and we are always pleased to see also colleagues from the other Nordic business councils at our functions. 

It was a special honour for us to welcome Datin Paduka Marina Mahathir, as the captivating guest speaker of the evening. In her speech Malaysia today - One Woman's View, she concentrated on women's situation in the country. She spoke about women's position in the family and society, religion, Sisters in Islam, child marriage and many other equally interesting and current issues. 

Her words encouraged the audience to some direct and open questions during the Q&A session, which went on far past the allocated time.

The evening continued with lively discussions between the guests all through the tasty cocktail buffet and mingle, which went on until late hours.     

THANK YOU SAAB Malaysia, Volvo Malaysia & SABA Capital, our three generous sponsors. Without you we would not have been able to hold the function for such a big crowd.

As Mrs.Wendy Lau, longtime and loyal MASBA board member, mentioned in her welcoming address, we are now looking forward to the three remaining MASBA events for 2014, i.e. the Ambassador's Dinner on 13 November, the visit to F-Secure 25 November, and of course the traditional Nordic Business Christmas Dinner on 5 December,
