Malaysia is considered as one of the most important economic and trading partners of Poland in South East Asia.
The dynamic growth of the Malaysian and Polish economies, especially in the recent years, has created new possibilities and opportunities for both the trade and investments.
Having in mind further development of the economic and trade relations between Poland and Malaysia The Trade and Investment Promotion Section of the Embassy of the Republic of Poland in Kuala Lumpur, fully supported the idea of the establishment of The Malaysia-Poland Business Association MPBA.
The idea of setting up the Malaysia-Poland Business Association was conceived some time ago when the Malaysian and Polish business communities realized the need for such a forum.
In September 2007 as the result of the efforts made by The Trade and Investment Promotion Section of the Embassy of the Republic of Poland in Kuala Lumpur THE MALAYSIA-POLAND BUSINESS ASSOCIATION was created.
The function of the Chairman was at least at the being taken up by Tan Sri Dato Abdul Kadir Bin Haji Sheikh Fadzir – Malaysian businessman, former member of the Malaysian Parliament as well as former Minister of Tourism Malaysia, while the Honorary Secretary position was taken over by Tn Hj Mohd Amirrol Mohd Shariff.
The invitations to become the member of the association were extended both to the Malaysian as well as the Polish companies among other to BUMAR Regional Office in Kuala Lumpur.
