Business Council 2000 High Tech SME CEO Mission to Malaysia
GREENVILLE, S.C., Sept. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Dan Christie, the chief
financial officer for network security firm KnowledgeSentry, was recently
selected to represent the United States in the US-ASEAN Business Council 2000
High Tech SME CEO Mission in Malaysia. "It's an honor to be selected for this
event featuring small to medium sized US high-tech enterprises," said
Christie, who is currently in Kuala Lumpur. "In the global economy,
technology businesses are interconnected and events like this advance personal
discussions and cooperation."
Christie, who is accompanying a handful of US executives, is touring
Malaysian high tech centers, participating in discussions organized by the US
Foreign Commercial Service Office in Malaysia. "The event is unique because
it is giving smaller high tech companies the opportunity to explore supplier,
customer and partner relationships in this rapidly growing area of the world.
Talks about the business environment for high tech companies in Malaysia are
planned as well as participation in an international IT conference," said
KnowledgeSentry co-founder Christie. The conference titled, "Convergence in
Malaysia: Competition, Convergence and Mobility," that will begin September 8,
includes speeches by executives from Lucent and Siemens AG.
The tour, which is currently underway, features a tour of Malaysia's
leading high tech corridors including Kulim High-Tech Park in Keda, Penang and
the Multimedia Super Corridor. "The Malaysian Government has clearly mapped
out its IT infrastructure growth plans through the year 2020, and if the
present success continues, Malaysia will be a key player in the new economy,"
said Christie. "Massive ongoing investments by Dell Computer, Intel, Agilent,
Iomega, Seagate and others are an important testament to the stability of the
government and quality of the workforce."
