MBAM, Asli to hold construction summit June 3

MASTER Builders Association Malaysia (MBAM) and the Asian Strategy & Leadership Institute (Asli) will organise the inaugural Malaysian Construction Summit 2008 (MCS 2008) on June 3 in Kuala Lumpur.

Themed "Addressing Supply Chain Bottlenecks for Sustainability", MBAM president Patrick Wong said the summit is organised in response to the immediate need for a high-level strategic platform to look into key issues affecting the construction industry.

The association hopes that industry stakeholders will participate in the summit and brainstorm with representatives from various ministries and other construction industry players.

In a statement issued yesterday, Wong said the MCS 2008 committee has made the effort of bringing in experts to discuss key topics such as building material supply issues and human resource-related problems.

"At the summit, we will try to recommend solutions for the benefit of the industry," he said.

Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Minister Datuk Shahrir Abdul Samad will deliver the keynote address, while Construction Industry Development Board (CIDB) chairman Tan Sri Jamilus Hussein will deliver the closing address and deliberate on the way forward.

MCS 2008 is endorsed by CIDB, the Real Estate and Housing Developers Association, Pertubuhan Arkitek Malaysia, Institution of Engineers Malaysia and Chartered Institute of Buildings Malaysia, among others.
