KUALA LUMPUR, (Bernama) -- Established in 2007, the Malaysian Export Academy has come a long way since its early days as the Exporters’ Club. Residing in its own three storey building in Puchong, Malaysian Export Academy is established to provide trade and export related subjects for the working adults.
"The Malaysian government has the agenda to develop exports among the Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs), so Malaysian Export Academy hopes to fill in the shortage of export expertise that Malaysia faces by training people, especially fresh graduates," the academy's Chief Executive Officer Prof Dr Abdul Kabur Ibrahim told Bernama in an interview recently.
According to Abdul Kabur, in a survey that they conducted on 100 SMEs in Malaysia, none of the companies have a dedicated export department even for companies who are actually exporting.

KUALA LUMPUR, (Bernama) -- The throngs of shoppers trawling Jalan Tunku Abdul Rahman, the 'grande dame' of Kuala Lumpur, on weekends will not miss Wisma Harwant which houses the most popular sporting goods shop in the capital, G.S. Gill.
While shopers are enamoured by sparkling new shops and department stores arraying Jalan Tunku Abdul Rahman or Jalan TAR, they cannot help but notice the imposing Wisma Harvant towards the end of the road.
Founded by Tan Sri G.S. Gill, who died at the age of 92 on Aug 27, 2016, the G.S. Gill sporting goods store started from a small shop in Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman (Batu Road then) in 1946 before expanding to an 11-storey Wisma Harwant which was named after his wife.
