KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 13 (Bernama) -- The 33th Malaysia International Machinery Fair (MIMF 2022), showcasing the latest developments and technology in the machinery and equipment industry, is expected to generate more than RM100 million in business transactions.
Organiser Product Malaysia Showcase International Business Society (PROMAS) head of strategic advisory Datuk Naim Mohamad said that the three-day event from Dec 1-3, 2022 will see participation from local and foreign companies.
“There will be about 500 booths with local participants and those from Singapore, China, Iran, Japan, South Korea, Germany, Pakistan, Taiwan and other countries.
“This year, we expect more than 3,000 buyers and 20,000 visitors,” he said at a press conference after the soft launch of MIMF 2022 at the Malaysia International Trade and Exhibition Centre (MITEC) here today.
Malaysian Investment Development Authority (MIDA) chairman Tan Sri Dr Sulaiman Mahbob officiated the event. He said the participation of industry players and manufacturers is important for Malaysia economically because it is a trading nation.
