The theme for MAARA's 11th Anniversary Gala Dinner was ‘We Care, We Clean’.
The Malaysia Automotive Recyclers Association (MAARA) hosted its 11th anniversary gala dinner on 10th November at the Hao Xiang Chi Seafood Restaurant, Grand Ballroom of Top Glove Tower, Setia Alam. Dr Ong Kian Ming, Deputy Minister of International Trade and Industry (MITI), was the guest of honour.
The theme for this year was ‘We Care, We Clean’. In the invitation letter to the members, MAARA President Gwee Bok Wee said the Association hoped to attract new members through this dinner. He also pointed out that numbers did matter as an association with more members would have greater strength, especially in influencing government regulation and policy as well as governmental decision making related to the industry.
In commemorating the 11th anniversary, the Association would print more than 1,000 copies of the MAARA 2020 calendar and distribute them to local automotive related workshops and international associates in the industry. Apart from that, MAARA wish to seek member support in placing advertisements in their directory, which they believe would enhance their members corporate branding and expand their business network and opportunities in the local market.
He also took the opportunity to announce three items of good news during the event. “In response to the Malaysian government’s re-establishment of the End-of-Life Vehicle (ELV) recycle and management policy, MAARA would try its very best to fulfil the requirements of its members on the Authorised Automotive Treatment Facilities (AATF). MAARA has partnered with MARII in organising 4R (Repair, Reuse, Recycle and Remanufacture) 2S (Service and Spare-parts) training, with the support of SIRIM. We would continue to arrange this training for our members. Last but not least, we have established MAARA Corporation Berhad to enhance our members’ business operation and efficiency, and provide stronger support to the automotive recycle industry so that our members could concentrate on their core business through sharing business resources and improve business sustainability.”
In addition, he said MAARA would conduct the Automotive Environmental Forum (AAEF) next year.
Highlights for the night were the 4R2S certification presentation by Dato Mahani Sahari, CEO, Malaysia Automotive Robotics & IoT Institute (MARII), entertainment, toasting ceremony, car auction session conducted by Pickles Auctions and lucky draws.
MAARA is a non-profit organisation that looks after the welfare of members and promotes businesses in the sector that require extensive funding. It expressed the sincere hope that it could get support and fund donation from industry players to provide better support for the industry and generate more opportunities for its member enterprises, thereby creating a win-win situation for consumers and enterprises.
