KUALA LUMPUR (Oct 9): The 10th International Greentech and Eco Products Exhibition and Conference Malaysia (IGEM) will see the signing of 16 Memoranda of Understanding (MoUs) to strengthen the country's green technology strategy.
Energy, Science, Technology, Environment and Climate Change Minister Yeo Bee Yin said the strategic partnerships between local and international companies were aimed at encouraging the sharing of ideas on green technologies.
“IGEM not only serves as a green technology exhibition but also attracts investments...we also want to encourage business matching in order to foster new partnerships.
