【WEB Seminar】Malaysia-Japan Water Business Seminar

Malaysia has been developing rapidly and is endowed with abundant water resources, and more investment in water infrastructure development is needed to solve urgent issues such as water shortage in Kuala Lumpur metropolitan, water pollution, and insufficient capacity of sewage treatment plants. It is expected that Japanese technologies and expertise will help meet water demand efficiently.

Considering the current state of COVID-19, this seminar will be held online (rather than in person this time.)

In the seminar, key persons from relevant government agencies will provide an overview of policies and current business situation of water and sewage sector, while Japanese companies involved in the water-related business will introduce their technologies, with the aim of developing markets for Japanese companies as well as achieving further development of Malaysia.
