The Minister of Entrepreneur Development (MED), YB Datuk Seri Mohd Redzuan Bin Md Yusof and his delegation were at SilTerra for a working visit on Wednesday, 24th October 2018.
The delegation included the Deputy Minister, YB Datuk Wira Dr. Hatta Ramli, the Secretary General and senior management of MED. Accompanying the Minister were the President & CEO of MiGHT (Malaysian Industry-Government Group for High Technology), Datuk Dr. Mohd Yusoff Sulaiman and Kulim Technology Park Corporation (KTPC) Senior VP (Corporate), Tuan Hj. Mohd Sahil Zabidi.
SilTerra's Member of the Board, En. Effizal Faiz Zulkifly (representing Khazanah Nasional), En. Firdaus Abdullah, CEO, and SilTerra’s top management were on hand to greet the Minister and his delegation. A Corporate Overview and Technology & Market Development activities was presented to share SilTerra's readiness and interest to participate in the New National Car Project (NNCP).
The idea for the NNCP was mooted by our Honourable Prime Minister, YAB Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad, with the objective to develop and localize more vendors and enhance their engineering capacity and technical capabilities. This will help position Malaysia beyond being just a consumer and to move towards a producer of high-value goods. MiGHT, a think tank under the Prime Minister’s Department, is tasked to establish strategic partnerships and cooperation with the private sector, while leveraging on relevant Ministries to help make this initiative a reality.
