Launching Ceremony IGEM 2020

The Minister of Environment and Water (KASA), Yang Berhormat Dato’ Sri Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man, in his welcome remarks said “IGEM has played an important role by providing an annual platform for the Malaysian government to engage with industry partners, entrepreneurs and the rakyat to share its green agenda, green policy direction and initiatives aimed at accelerating green growth, expanding sustainable economic activity, as well as creating more employment opportunities.”

“Despite the radically different social and economic environment we are facing today, we are still seeing many familiar partner organisations - who have once again chosen to continue engaging with one another via IGEM 2020; thus, reflecting the event’s continued relevance and importance in this new paradigm,” he concluded.

IGEM 2020 is a program funded by the Government of Malaysia with its main sponsors are PETRONAS, Solvarvest Holdings Bhd and the British-Malaysia Chamber of Commerce, and this event will be welcoming its strategic partners once more - the Malaysian Investment Development Authority (MIDA), and business matching partner, the Malaysia External Trade Development Corporation (MATRADE); hosting over 500 networking sessions including curated group and personal business matching sessions between leading and emerging organisations from various industries to pave the way for greater green investments across the region.
