LABUAN, June 2 (Bernama) -- The nearly-defunct four-decade-old Labuan Chamber of Commerce (LCC) is set to receive a new breath of life with a newly elected line-up for the 2022-2023 term.

Following its annual general meeting (AGM) last month, it is now led by chairman Daniel Doughty, who has a wide range of experience in private and public-listed companies, government-linked companies, and non-governmental organisations.

LCC, which was first established in 1977, will come up with a new logo, carry out a membership recruitment drive, introduce strategic patrons and carve out data-driven strategies and action plans to drive its members’ businesses forward, Daniel said.

“LCC invites Labuan business entities and local entrepreneurs to join the chamber in the interest of a sustainable Labuan economy.

“We hope to be able to breathe new life into this chamber. This is indeed a new beginning for the Labuan Chamber of Commerce. We hope to rebuild and revitalise the chamber and, while doing so, play an important role in growing the Labuan economy,” he told Bernama today.

“We hope through our efforts, we could be a catalyst and bridge for a better dialogue involving all Labuan business stakeholders to find a common ground and collectively fight for what is best for all here in Labuan.”

Daniel said the chamber is ready to work closely with the government and its agencies, local leaders, and the local community to bring forth the best solutions to spur the Labuan economy.

Founded by prominent Labuan businessman, the late Datuk Francis Tee, the chamber is now led by young professional and business leaders following the AGM last month.

Daniel has taken leadership roles in programmes related to multiple industries including tourism, conservation, public relations, blockchain, logistics, oil and gas and entrepreneurship.

He was also on the board of directors of the Labuan Port Authority and Asian Supply Base Sdn Bhd.

Daniel will be assisted by deputy Tan Soon Kiat, who is a well-known local business leader, as well as Raymond Pang Onn Phin as secretary and Erich Nicholas as treasurer.

The executive committee comprises Pearlita Koh, Tee Leong Kian, Wazlee Wrizzeelian Ismail, Tan Boon Chang, Faizul Fazlan Zainuddin, Eng Lean Chye, and Tan Chiew Hing.
