Malaysian Rubber Council Webinars
In 2021, DFI started working with the Malaysian Rubber Council to help them understand how Malaysian rubber exports can be increased through channels and opportunities offered by International Financing Institutions (IFIs). The initiative is aimed at reaching out to larger untapped markets through fundings, tenders, procurement prospects, technology transfer and knowledge sharing.
In 2022, Phase 2 of the program has been strategically-focused in connecting Malaysian rubber companies with IFIs and their dedicated procuring agencies. Two flagship webinar programs were launched on June 20, 2022 for medical device companies and on November 10, 2022 for dry rubber commodities required in infrastructure projects. DFI’s Di Tan spoke at the events, and more than 50 companies participated in both events where DFI invited IFI speakers to share more information on how Malaysian firms can work with IFIs.
