Sarawak to launch Business Events platform for Government Ministries and Agencies at TriBE 2018

Sarawak’s inaugural conference, Business Events Tribal Meet (TriBE 2018) taking place on 24th August 2018, will also be the launch of the BESarawak Alliance – a dedicated associate platform for government ministries and agencies to further Sarawak’s economic transformation.

Initiated by the Sarawak Convention Bureau (SCB), a state agency under the Ministry of Tourism, Arts, Culture, Youth and Sports, this all-new platform aims to create collaborative opportunities between government ministries and agencies through Business Events (meetings, incentives, conventions, exhibitions) as it is an effective gateway to accelerate trade and investment, further Sarawak’s key focus areas and multiply global networks.

“Not only is Business Events a lucrative source of immediate economic contribution, but the spillovers to other key sector areas are essential in creating a sustainable and stronger Sarawak. Through a strong collaboration between other ministries and agencies, Business Events can be reinforced as a pivotal driver for the development of the state,” commented Minister of Tourism, Arts, Culture, Youths and Sports Datuk Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah.

SCB’s Chief Operating Officer, Amelia Roziman revealed that the BESarawak Alliance will also strengthen Sarawak position as a role model for 2nd and 3rd tier destinations within the region.

“As a progressive and relatively young destination, Sarawak’s achievements have been truly remarkable. In order for us to achieve the same unprecedented growth in the decades to come, our next big chapter would need to be rooted from a common understanding that Business Events is the way to go,” she began.

“We have received tremendous support from several government ministries in the past. And in turn, their portfolios have benefitted these Business Events – the transmission of knowledge, the establishment of new partnerships, and renewed perspectives,” Roziman continued.

SCB’s General Manager of Government and Industry Relations – Chew Chang Guan, also the project manager for the BESarawak Alliance, looks forward to formally honour these ministries and agencies at TriBE 2018.

“Without their unceasing support, Sarawak would not be where it is today. Not only am I excited to acknowledge their contributions at TriBE 2018, but also to welcome new alliances in bridging gaps and open new conversations,” he concluded.

In addition to the launch of the BESarawak Alliance, TriBE 2018 will also feature a stellar line-up of keynote speakers, an associations fireside chat from the global authorities of Business Events, and the premier awards for sector partners – the 9th Anak Sarawak Awards.
