Phang Ah Tong
Malaysian Industrial Development Authority

Dear Mr. Schutte,

I would like to thank you for organizing and leading a 32 member business delegation to Malaysia from Feb 24 to Mar 6, 2005. The feedback that I received from the mission members and the Malaysian public and private sectors, who were involved, including the staff at the US Embassy in Kuala Lumpur, was one of success and overwhelming. I was given to understand that several potential collaborations have been initiated between the mission members and Malaysian private sector and that your partner in Malaysia is already planning a visit to Fort Lauderdale in April 2005 to further enhance the ties established with the mission members

It is indeed my hope that the contacts that were established between the Malaysian and Florida companies on the occasion of the business mission to Malaysia would lead to fruitful conclusion for mutually beneficial interest.

The Malaysian Industrial Development Authority will continue to support your efforts in encouraging your clients to consider Malaysia as a suitable location for their overseas expansion

Should you or any of your clients require any assistance on doing business in Malaysia, please do not hesitate to contact me directly

Thank you.

Yours sincerely,
Phang Ah Tong
