An MoU recently inked between the Federation of Chinese Physicians & Acupuncturists of Malaysia (FCPAAM) and Sarawak Convention Bureau (SCB) will pave the way for the former to set up its regional office in Kuching, the state capital of Sarawak.
The decision to have a regional base in Kuching is an effort on FCPAAM’s part to reach out to spinal health practitioners in Asia-Pacific and to grow the Malaysian sector.
FCPAAM is the first federation to be part of the Business Events Sarawak Association Centre, an effort by the SCB to attract associations to establish regional associations in the city through incentives including a two-year complimentary office suite or a desk; complimentary Wi-Fi, and access to a welcome reception area, meeting rooms and 24-hour security.
Ng Po Kok, president of both FCPAAM and the Malaysia Spinal Health Association, of which the latter is also a member of the federation, shared in a press statement: â€śThe alliance between the Association and SCB has positioned us well to carry out our mission, given that Sarawak is becoming a notable second-tier destination with undeniable potential in the business events sector.”
Amelia Roziman, COO at SCB, added: â€śFurthermore, the support from the Sarawak state government and local communities empowers the industry, so this will inspire and encourage more associations to do the same (and set up regional offices in Kuching).”
The FCPAAM office is located on Level 3 of SCB’s office at Plaza Aurora.
