KUALA LUMPUR, 23 August 2017 - InvestKL invited Malaysian talent from various multinationals in Greater Kuala Lumpur recently to partake in an exclusive Merdeka dinner session with the Minister of
International Trade and Industry YB Datuk Seri Mustapa Mohamed, Deputy Minister of Federal Territories YB Dato Dr Loga Bala Mohan, and PEMANDU Associates CEO YBhg Dato Sri Idris Jala.

The dinner event held in conjunction with Merdeka to celebrate Malaysia and Greater KL’s young, dynamic talent was attended by talents from over 30 MNCs hubbed in Greater KL, such as Worldline, Codemasters, Honeywell, IBM, Schlumberger, to name a few.

YB Datuk Seri Mustapa Mohamed, YB Dato Dr Loga Bala Mohan and YBhg Dato Sri Idris Jala engaged

InvestKL CEO, Datuk Zainal Amanshah stated that the interactive dinner event was meant to highlight

many ways- especially creating more jobs for Malaysians and producing a high quality local talent pool. What better way to showcase this than have the talents from MNCs themselves engage in an open discussion with the Ministers!”, said Datuk Zainal.
