Take more interest in politics — SCCCI chief
Borneo Post March 12, 2012, MondaySIBU: Chinese businessmen should show more concern about political matters rather than merely standing on the sidelines and grabbing whatever businesses that arise.
“Be active and be more concern about politics in the coming general election instead of only focusing on your businesses.
“This is because politics will affect the financial development of the country,” said Sibu Chinese Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SCCCI) president Hii Yu Siong at its 22nd annual general meeting here yesterday.
Hii added that whatever happened politically could also affect the benefits that the people were enjoying today.
On another matter, Hii urged small and medium enterprise (SME) operators to always sharpen their competitive edge in order to survive.
“This is different for large-scale company as they are linked to companies overseas.
“They are doing business globally.”
Hii said SCCCI had organised several seminars last year to help SMEs better manage their business and learn how to go about doing business globally.
