MIRI: Trade fairs have been proven to be a successful platform in assisting the business community, particularly young entrepreneurs, to market their products and services effectively.

In this regard, such events should be organised more frequently to help boost local business activities, says Senator Alan Ling.

“Trade fairs really provide a good platform for those in business to promote their products as well as to introduce their latest offerings to the market.

“I commend See Hua Marketing for organising such an event three times a year, as one of the company’s corporate social responsibility commitments. It is something good and should be followed by others,” he said when officiating at the closing of the 20th Miri Trade Fair (Mitraf) at Permaisuri Imperial City Mall here on Sunday.

Ling also suggested that See Hua Marketing collaborate with government agencies as well as the Ministry of Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs, and Ministry of International Trade and Industry, in future Mitraf editions.

Among those present at the closing ceremony were See Hua Marketing Sdn Bhd Miri acting branch manager Chua Chuen Chai and assistant branch manager Sorina Yeo.

The four-day trade fair was organised by See Hua Marketing in collaboration with Permaisuri Imperial City Mall and The Imperial Mall.

More than 70 exhibitors from Peninsular Malaysia and Sarawak took part in the event which showcased a wide range of products and services.
