A very Good evening! On behalf of Kuching Bicycle and Motor Traders association. I sincerely welcome the arrival of all dignitaries, distinguished guests, sponsors, valued business partners, members of the media to our association’s 57th anniversary dinner. Your valued attendance and support are of significant to us to organise such a memorable event that foster networking, unity, and harmony amongst us that makes us all proud.
Over the past 56 years, our pioneers originating and operating as bicycle dearlers and evolve to motorcycles trade that give rise to KBMTA today. Motorcycle business in Kuching is now operated mostly by the 2nd or even the 3rd generation. This is very promising career as steady growth is expected every year. KBMTA provides platform/channel to update, assist, and raise issues that affect our trade concerning any new statutory rulings, policies, and guidelines.
Our theme for this event is “Unity & Strength through Collaboration and Governance with Integrity. Face Challenges Courageously and capitalize the Information Technology Era”. The purpose of ourannual dinner is to foster networking among members, motorcycle manufacturers, suppliers and our business associates. Many of our members who are here may not have the chance to meet others even though they communicate extensively through phone calls.
The IT era really revolutionised the way we work today and also the way things are being handled. In motorcycle industry, most of the works are going online like E-Registration of vehicle, E-ownership claim endorsement, E-Insurance and credit information services etc. Being in business, you must learn computer skill or hire someone who does. The IT era simplifies the processes to a more efficient paperless way. At the same time, it creates more job opportunities. Our association urges members to upgrade their IT skill in order to run the business in a more competent modern motorcycle industry.
It is indeed an honour to be the Organizing Chairman of this event and very honour to work with this responsive, participative and energetic team guided by our main committee under the leader of our Chairman Lau and our mentor cum Executive Advisor Temenggong Lu.
