Mah Sing’s Group Managing Director, Tan Sri Dato’ Sri Leong Hoy Kum shared, “The MIRF exhibition is the perfect platform for us to reach out to franchise and retail owners and showcase our commercial products. This was the reason why we felt it was timely for us to launch our Business Incentive Grant programme. The six projects under this programme are quality developments in strategic locations across Klang Valley and in Iskandar Puteri, Johor. We encourage entrepreneurs, business owners and investors to take advantage of this programme.”
Present at the launch was the guest of honour, Minister of Domestic Trade, Cooperatives, and Consumerism, Y.B. Dato’ Seri Hamzah Bin Zainudin, Mah Sing’s Group Managing Director, Tan Sri Dato’ Sri Leong Hoy Kum, Mah Sing’s Chief Executive Officer, Datuk Ho Hon Sang, MIRF 2017’s Organising Chairman, Dato’ Liew Bin, Malaysia Retail Chain Association’s (MRCA) President, Dato Garry Chua and MRCA’s Immediate Past President, Dato’ Liaw Choon Liang.
Tan Sri Dato’ Sri Leong Hoy Kum shared “Retailers and franchise owners are a large customer base for Mah Sing as approximately 28% of our remaining gross development value (GDV) and unbilled sales are commercial developments, spread across Kuala Lumpur and Greater Kuala Lumpur, Penang, Johor Bahru and Kota Kinabalu. Our focus is to enhance the lives of our buyers and this programme will help entrepreneurs, business owners and investors to own a quality commercial unit. Our Lifestyle Shops @ Southville City was the pioneer project to give out business grants but we decided to include five (5) more developments and extend the validity period as we wanted to give our buyers more options.”
