SHAH ALAM, May 9 — The state government via the Selangor Technical and Development Center (STDC) will forge a strategic partnership with 3D product design multinational corporation Dassault Systems in the city of Boston, the United States (US).
Menteri Besar Dato’ Seri Amirudin Shari said this was also part of the efforts to foster ties with other industry players, for the benefit of Selangor’s citizens.
“Alhamdulillah, a memorandum of understanding was also signed during this trip, to kickstart the strategic partnership with the international company,” he said in an Instagram post yesterday.
Amirudin is currently on a working trip to the US, leading a delegation of 11 technology startups in a series of investment and pitching events.
Later in the evening, he also spent time chatting and having coffee with university students from Selangor, in the city of Los Angeles, California.
“Hearing the views of Imran, Zabir, Jalal, Rifqi, Razin and Adlan, on their ideas to improve Selangor’s administrative matters, as well as several suggestions from Shah Alam natives Rifqi, Imran and Adlan.
“This has convinced me of the #KitaSelangor spirit as not merely a slogan, but as a major idea which can drive the state to become a regional benchmark.
“InsyaAllah, in the nearest future I will announce a special programme for Selangor graduates abroad, which they can use to their benefit and prepare for, once they return to the homeland.
“Selangor is our home, use what is available as much as we can, for the sake of collectively progressing the state,” Amirudin said.
Earlier today, the Menteri Besar also met with the Malaysian diaspora and community in the city of San Francisco, California.
“Alhamdulillah, I was very pleased to be able to share Selangor’s success with the Malaysian diaspora in San Francisco. For three years in a row, the state has recorded revenue collections that have exceeded the set targets, as well as launched the First Selangor Plan (RS-1), the first five-year development plan by a state government in Malaysia.
“During the meeting, attended by university students and Malaysian expatriates in the US, I strongly encouraged their views and opinions, particularly on developing Selangor,” he said.
Although Selangor is the nation’s most developed state and the biggest contributor to the Malaysian economy, Amirudin stressed the state government’s commitment to safeguarding the welfare of the people, particularly those who need aid.
“Through Iltizam Selangor Penyayang’s 46 programmes, the state government empowers the people’s livelihoods and ensures no one is left behind in the land of Darul Ehsan.
“I extended my thanks to the Malaysian diaspora which attended the meeting, as well as to the management of Koriander Indian Cuisine Restaurant, which prepared a most delicious and unique repast,” he said.
