Distinguished guests,

Ladies and Gentlemen.

1.        Salam sejahtera and good morning to all of you.

2.        A special welcome to our Minister, Yang Berhormat Datuk Hajal Zuraida binti Kamaruddin. Thank you for taking time to be here this morning.

3.        My heartfelt appreciation to everybody for joining us at this special event to officially launch the IRICE 2022 – International Rubber Industry Convention & Expo.

4.        I am very happy to be here, representing the Malaysian Rubber Products Manufacturers’ Association, MRPMA.

5.        The past 2 years have been challenging for all of us. We all experience an unprecedented situation with the global COVID 19 pandemic. A virus not visible to the naked eye has put the world on pause. It has put into question how and where to go from here.

6.        However, with high vaccination rates and effective testing mechanisms, we are now in a better position to resume more economic and social activities.

Yang Berhormat Menteri, Ladies and Gentlemen.

7.        The IRICE 2022 is a specialized exhibition focusing on rubber industry and further to promote Malaysian made rubber products on a domestic and international scale.

8.        Today’s launching of the dry rubber manufactured product marks a good first step in the right direction to forge synergy between all of us for one goal which we all want to achieve that is to promote Malaysian rubber products locally as well as globally.

9.        We are very grateful to the Malaysian government and agencies for their tremendous support, namely Ministry of Plantation Industries and Commodities, Malaysian Rubber Board, and particularly the Malaysian Rubber Council to co-host this IRICE 2022.

7.        We do our best when we do it together.  So, you know why we have invited you today – each one of you is an essential player because the success of IRICE 2022 depends on your support. Your active involvement and participation will be of vital importance in showing to the world that Malaysia has the capability to become an important hub for the rubber industry.

8.        It is in our agenda to promote the upstream sector of the rubber industry with special reference to the smallholders and SME players.

9.       Through IRICE, we hope, it will also bring more benefits to the downstream sector by creating and identifying new market opportunities and awareness in the rubber industry.

Yang Berhormat Menteri, Ladies and Gentlemen.

10.     It is also our vision to make IRICE the leading exhibition for the rubber industry in ASEAN.

11.      Finally, let me extend my gratitude to MRC for making this Expo possible and my sincere hope that this exhibition will achieve astounding success with your everlasting support and on behalf of MRPMA, we thank you for attending the launching ceremony of IRICE 2022.

12.      Thank you very much and we hope see you at IRICE 2022 Expo on 6th to 8th September 2022 in KLCC again. Thank You!
