Sarawak CVB is encouraging local and foreign associations to relocate their Asia-Pacific based offices to Kuching by offering them different kinds of assistance.
The bureau will provide monetary assistance by paying for the office rental space, as well as utility bills, for two years. They will also allow these associations to use the meeting spaces within their office.
Of course, all associations are welcomed to open their offices in Kuching. Nevertheless, the bureau is especially focusing on associations operating in the state’s key sectors, such as renewable energy, agriculture, infrastructure development, urban planning, medical, education, IT, women and children, as well as digital economy.
Amelia Roziman, Sarawak Convention Bureau’s chief operating officer, said: “By having the Asia-Pacific offices in Sarawak, we hope to position the state as a business events friendly destination and attract more regional meetings. This will also help to strengthen the branding and marketing of Sarawak as a business events destination.”
Until now, Sarawak CVB has attracted one association, the International Counselling Association of Malaysia, which will be setting up their office next year.
