The British Malaysian Chamber of Commerce (BMCC) in collaboration with the British High Commission Kuala Lumpur invites UK companies specialising in Green Building Solutions to join us for this webinar introducing opportunities in Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam and providing information on the upcoming Regional Virtual Trade Mission focusing on green building solutions. This event is supported by the British Chambers of Commerce and British Embassies in Thailand and Vietnam.

Why Attend?

  • With exponential growth in population, rapid urbanisation, and an imminent threat of climate change leading up to a strain in natural resources, Malaysia, Thailand, and Vietnam are committed to a green recovery plan for the first time, opening a plethora of golden opportunities for UK companies in the green building industry.
  • Malaysia, Thailand, and Vietnam are known to share deep and long-standing trade ties and diplomacy, a popular  entry point for companies seeking to expand into other ASEAN markets. Together, we aim to give this world cleaner  air and a brighter tomorrow. A new heartbeat for the generation to come.
