Kuala Lumpur to host sixth World Chambers Congress

The Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre has been chosen as the host destination for the sixth World Chambers Congress, the first time a Southeast Asian destination has been chosen for the event.

Organised biennially by the International Chamber of Commerce’s World Chambers Federation, the World Chambers Congress is the only international forum for the global chamber of commerce community. Taking place from 3 to 5 June 2009, and including a comprehensive agenda of plenaries and workshops, the Sixth World Chambers Congress will represent a virtual showroom for chamber excellence.

Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre: Showcasing Southeast Asia

Sessions will address the key challenges faced by business today, including the economic implications of climate change, and how business will need to adapt to new challenges in society, as well as the impact of globalisation on small to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).

Other topics addressed include issues as diverse as corporate governance, counterfeiting and intellectual property, developing youth entrepreneurship, women in business, information technology and leadership.

The unique and universal role of chambers as natural facilitators of building partnerships between governments and businesses is also a core theme. Sessions actively showcase how chambers are responding and leading growth and change within in their communities.

“This is the first time the World Chambers Congress is to be held in Southeast Asia, with the Federation of Malaysian Manufacturers (FMM) as the host chamber. We are pleased to be the chosen destination for this, and it will give us the opportunity to showcase what our vibrant city has to offer,” said Puan Normah Malik, deputy general of Kuala Lumpur City Hall.
