Today marked a remarkable day at InvestPenang as we welcomed Prof. Dr. Chieh Hsu and a cohort of 19 enthusiastic students hailing from the prestigious University of St.Gallen and Singapore Management University. Their visit was part of a Business Study Mission to Malaysia aimed at gaining deeper insights into Penang’s industrialization journey over the past 50 years.

The objective? To provide these aspiring minds with a holistic view of Penang’s thriving business landscape and understand the pivotal factors contributing to its success as an industrial hub.

The session was nothing short of enriching as we delved into Penang’s remarkable trajectory, showcasing how innovation, resilience, and strategic partnerships have fueled our growth story. We were honored to facilitate discussions that shed light on the diverse aspects of Penang’s business environment, offering a comprehensive understanding of what makes this region a magnet for industry pioneers.

Adding depth to this enlightening session, we were privileged to have Mr. Zulkifli from The Northern Corridor Implementation Authority (NCIA) share invaluable insights into the organization and their transformative programs. His expertise and perspective added a layer of understanding about the collaborative efforts shaping the economic landscape in this region.

We express our heartfelt gratitude to Prof. Dr. Chieh Hsu, the students, and Mr. Zulkifli for their active participation and insightful contributions.

At InvestPenang, we believe in fostering knowledge exchange and collaboration, and today’s session exemplified the spirit of exploration and learning that fuels innovation and growth.
