MRE celebrates 55th Anniversary

In conjunction with its 55th anniversary, the Malaysian Rubber Exchange (MRE) organized its Annual Dinner on 6 October 2017 at The Wembley Hotel, Georgetown, Pulau Pinang. The response was overwhelming as about 700 representatives of the rubber industry and their guests attended the function. The presence of producers from ASEAN region and consumers from China, India, Japan, Iran, South Korea, USA and Europe had made the function as a forum to foster new ties while at the same time strengthening the existing rubber network. The dinner was hosted by Yang Berusaha Dr. Zairossani Mohd Nor, Chairman of the MRE Management Committee who is also the Deputy Director-General (Research and Innovation) of the Malaysian Rubber Board.

Yang Berbahagia Datuk K. Yogeesvaran, Secretary General of the Ministry of Plantation Industries and Commodities was the special guest of honour at the dinner. As had been in the past, the annual event provided an opportunity for the producers and traders to interact with their clients and business associates. YBhg. Datuk K. Yogeesvaran also gave away the prizes to the winners of the MRE Golf Tournament and token of appreciation to golf sponsors which was held earlier in the day at Penang Golf Club, Bayan Lepas, Pulau Pinang.
