MBAM President, Mr Foo Chek Lee who stated, “I am very thankful for being given this opportunity to lead the Association for another 2 years. Since we are hosting the 44 th International Federation of Asian and Western Pacific Contractors’ Association (IFAWCPA) Convention this year which is a big event in MBAM’s calendar from November 12 th to 16 th November 2018 we will work as a team towards making it the most successful event in the history of MBAM.”

He added, “Although we have many issues to pursue to improve the efficiency and productivity of the construction industry, I also seriously note that the industry really need to address the issue of illegals already employed in the industry because these are trained and skilled workers. We hope the present Government will legalise those already employed by the industry but to repatriate those who are running their own illegal businesses. Moreover, we really like to see the cost on recruitment of foreign workers to decrease and simplified for the betterment of the industry. In addition, the levy paid by construction companies should be made to be pay in two installments per year, as the burden is really heavy on contractors especially for the smaller companies”.
