Last but not least, we would like to congratulate all the winners for the 100MIYE award this year. Thank you all so much for your immense contribution to the national economy, and introducing countless job opportunities for the citizens of Malaysia.
I would like to remind our readers of the advice and wisdom bestowed by our beloved Prime Minister, Yang Amat Berhormat Tun Dr Mahathir, from his opening speech during the award night itself.
“To some, it may only be about profit, monetary gains and bottom lines. But more importantly, as we strive to create successful economic models through entrepreneurship, is that our entrepreneurs grow alongside noble values such as integrity and honesty,” he said.
“Without these values, success becomes mechanical and lacking a soul to it,” Tun M further elaborated.
Entrepreneur Insight would like to wish all of our award recipients good luck in your respective business ventures. We are looking forward to adding more value to your personal and professional lives through community events down the road.
