Message from The President of Steel Wire Association of Malaysia

The Malaysian government has continued to liberalise the steel industry as more and more steel products are included in the liberalisation process.

We, as manufacturers of steel wire products, must be vigilant against importation of sub-standard products into Malaysia. We must work together with the government to ensure that products coming into the country are of the highest quality that meets the requirement of the International Standards.

As for the export market, we must be efficient in our production so that we can compete internationally. With the opening of the market by the government we must be able to stand on our own and be very competitive. All stakeholders must work together to ensure that the steel industry continues to grow and expand locally as well as internationally.

I would like to take this opportunity to Thank Yang Berhormat Dato’ Sri Mustapa Mohamed, Minister of International Trade and Industry for his message in the Directory, advertisers, all members of SWAM and the National Management Committee for their contribution towards the success of this publication.


Mr Koay Chin Oon
