The Malaysian Wood Expo 2019 (MWE 2019) is a show that is not-to-be-missed! Jointly organised by the Malaysian Timber Council (MTC) and the publisher of wood magazines, Panels & Furniture Group, MWE 2019 will be the first true coming together of top exhibitors in this part of the world.
Some of the finest international wood-based manufacturers and exporters as well as woodworking machinery suppliers and buyers are expected at the expo. MWE 2019 is also an avenue to tap into the unlimited opportunities that some of the fastest-growing Southeast Asian economies have got to offer.
ASEAN as the third largest economy in Asia and fifth largest economy in the world, offers great opportunities with its recovery of exports and robust domestic demand. Since 2006, ASEAN’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) has stood steadily at 5.3 per cent. Total exports from the ASEAN economies rose by 14.7 per cent to US$1,322 billion in 2017. With several Free Trade Agreements under its belt, trading with ASEAN countries will lead to a wealth of business opportunities.
Ranked as the second most competitive economy within the ASEAN bloc, Malaysia, with its well-developed infrastructure, sound political climate, strategic geographical location and business facilities, makes it an excellent gateway into ASEAN. Malaysia will also be a good timber manufacturing hub for export to ASEAN countries which have a combined population of over 640 million and a GDP of US$2.8 trillion.
Both MTC and Panels & Furniture have pulled out all the stops to make MWE 2019 a successful event and an important tool in your business wheelhouse.
MWE 2019 is going to be about the market, trends, new products and the place where the tendencies of tomorrow are going to be discovered!
See you there!
