Learn From High-Tech Firms, Manufacturers Urged - Bernama

Malaysian manufacturers have been urged to learn new technologies from big markets like Germany and high-technology companies to help them develop the knowledge and the research and development (R&D) expertise in facing the fourth industrial revolution and future challenges.
Minister II of International Trade and Industry Datuk Seri Ong Ka Chuan said local manufacturers including small and medium enterprises (SMEs) need to also be alert to technological changes by working closely with global partners to support and build the industry ecosystem.
“We (Malaysia) only have a population of 30 million and cannot achieve the world-class technology overnight.
“That is why we must cooperate with global players and learn technologies like three dimension (3D) and 4D to keep the investments coming in,” he told reporters after opening Rehau Malaysia’s showroom and office in Kuala Lumpur yesterday.
Ong said free trade agreements (FTAs) like Asean and the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement are important to ensure competitiveness and growth in all industries by allowing free movements of goods, services and investments.
“For example, last year we signed an FTA with Turkey, and as at the first-quarter of this year, our trade with them (Turkey) has surged significantly by 123%,” Ong said.
Earlier in his speech, Ong said the Malaysian Investment Development Authority in 2015 approved 224 regional and global establishment projects with estimated business spending of over RM8 billion, and created 4,000 job opportunities.
Rehau, a German-based company, is a polymer specialist founded in 1948, and an international leader in the construction and automotive industries with operations in over 170 locations worldwide and about 20,000 employees.
On the opening of Rehau in Malaysia, Ong said local talents will be employed, reducing the dependency on cheap foreign labour, as the company is bringing their R&D and innovation technologies, which require engineers and high-skilled workers.
He also expressed hope that the expansion of Rehau’s office in Malaysia would lead to the setting up of a Rehau manufacturing plant in the future. — Bernama

Doris Pastry Cafe, Kota Laksamana.Melaka (06-288 8536)

New Cake and Pastry Cafe located behind Bank Of China row in Kota Laksamana. Its seems hidden in plain sight but is fast gaining a good reputation amongst the Facebook literate young crowd for its selection of pastry and choices of Moon cake varieties.The morning I was there with my Family, it was almost 3/4 full. Mostly with the grandparents and young adults in tow testing out the special puppy chocolate mousse!Prices are on the high end for most cafe items but ambiance is geared towards open minimalistic style which seems to be favored by the crowd.Food is tasty but service can be confused especially if crowd is heavy. Overall, if they survive the first year, they are on their way to being an open secret the locals go to for good pastry and Cakes!
