JOHOR BAHARU, April 4 (Bernama) — The National Chamber of Commerce and Industry Malaysia (NCCIM) has welcomed the appointment of Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak as the sixth prime minister of the country.
The chamber is confident that Najib would be able to discharge his duties which were especially challenging given the global economic situation now.
“Through his pragmatic approach he will be able to helm our beloved nation to greater heights,” said its secretary-general Datuk Syed Hussein Al-Habshee when contacted today.
As the umbrella body for the Malay, Chinese and Indian chambers of commerce, NCCIM feels Najib with his experience could stimulate economic growth in line with the desire of the business community to see Malaysia become a centre for economic activity in the region.
Syed Hussein urged all business persons irrespective of race to be with the new leadership in continuing to develop the nation.
