Held at the Malaysia Agro Exposition Park Serdang (“MAEPS”), Kuala Lumpur, on 13 September 2017, the workshop initiated by Million Sunray received a positive turnout of approximately 60-70 participants from Malaysian government agencies, Durian and Agro-based industry players, as well as other potential investors.
Graced by the presence of YB Dato’ Sri Ahmad Shabery Cheek, the Minister of Ministry of Agriculture and Agro-Based Industry (“MOA”), the workshop was a successful platform in motivating agriculture industry players to pioneer the promotion of Malaysian agricultural products, especially Durians, in China.
As the first collaborative effort by MOA and other related agencies, together with the People’s Government of Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, the Nanning Durian Festival will be co-organized by Million Sunray and Rimbunan Hijau.
