Message from the Chairman, Malaysia Shipowners’ Association (MASA)
I am pleased to be invited to share a few words in conjunction with the launch of Malaysia Logistics Directory 2018/2019. I would like to convey my heartiest congratulations to Marshall Cavendish (M) Sdn Bhd for its dedication and hard work in promoting the Malaysian logistics industry through this annual publication.
The Malaysia Shipowners' Association (MASA) was established in 1976 with the main objective of protecting and promoting the interest of Malaysian shipowners. Beside serving the interests of its’ members, MASA together with other stakeholders like Ministry of Transport (MOT), Marine Department, Coastguard, Navy, Marine Police etc, work towards continuous improvement of maritime standards, safety at sea and protection of the environment.
MASA serves as an effective platform to unite shipowners and key industry players towards a common vision to promote a vibrant and sustainable shipping industry to fuel Malaysia’s economic growth and development. In planning for the future, MASA will continue to keep abreast of developments, monitor changes and maintain dialogues with relevant government agencies and industry partners in order to provide members with the confidence and support needed to run the next lap and cross the next hurdle.
On this note, MASA would like to thank Marshall Cavendish (M) Sdn Bhd for this impeccable and timely publication. We trust the Malaysia Logistics Directory will serve as a useful reference for businesses and individuals.
Thank you and best wishes.
Dato’ Ir. Abdul Hak Bin Md Amin
The Chairman of Malaysia Shipowners' Association (MASA)
