2007 Anniversaries Galore!
In just 50 years, Malaysia has found herself in a remarkable turnaround, now
boasting the most up-to-date infrastructure, sophisticated technology and
still without forgoing a rich culture that is interwoven into the tapestry
of modern Malaysia. The Centre, with its successful marriage of international
standards, professional attention and traditional lines, is truly a reflection
of contemporary Malaysia
and OGA: Growing with the Centre
Malaysia once again took centre stage in the oil and gas arena when the Asia Oil and Gas Conference (AOGC) and the Asian Oil, Gas & Petrochemical Engineering Exhibition (OGA 2007) marked their 3rd and 2nd year at the Centre respectively.
The exclusive songket gift items are custom-designed by Malaysian designer
Salikin Sidek and feature an intricate motif of bunga tabur (scattered
flower blooms) and pucuk rebung (bamboo shoots), patterns reflected in
the Centre’s stately décor.

complex mix of people attending events at our Centre demands a completely
versatile approach to our cooking philosophy…and we deliver.”
Happenings Themed “Saluting Malaysia’s
50th Golden Year of Independence”and held in
conjunction with Visit Malaysia Year 2007, the Centre

From the eyes and ears of the Centre, we learn how much Malaysians have gained
from having an international edge and how they contribute to the best business
practices in their specialised areas:
