AEON’S ANNUAL LUNCHEON FOSTER TIES AMONG BUSINESS PARTNERS
Kuala Lumpur, 15 April 2014
Malaysia’s leading retailer, AEON CO. (M) BHD, recently had their annual AEON Business Partners Alliances (ABPA) Luncheon and Talk at Double Tree by Hilton to show their appreciation to AEON’s long-standing business partners. Besides strengthening ties, the luncheon also serves as a platform for AEON to share their vision and growth for the year, and for partners to share their opinions and ideas to build a better working relationship.
“We first introduced ABPA in 2006, and over the years, we take pride in organizing events for our business partners because we believe our success is because of the good, strong, open relationship we have with our business partners,” said Nur Qamarina Chew, Managing Director of AEON CO. (M) BHD at the event.
“ABPA provides networking opportunities for business partners to grow together with AEON. It is a partnership that is mutually beneficial, which allows us to share the best practices and to stay ahead in providing nothing less but the best for our customers,” she further added.
“In order to serve our customers better, this year, AEON will be expanding their operations complimenting AEON’S philosophy of “Customer First” to continue enriching lives in Malaysia. Additionally, certain outlets will undergo renovations to uphold the excitement of a different look and feel for a changed shopping experience,” said Poh Ying Loo, Executive Director of AEON CO. M (BHD) during his presentation on AEON’s growth and plans moving forward.
Also present at the event was Lokman Affandy B. Yahya, a guest speaker from PEMANDU from the Prime Minister’s Department. According to Lokman, the unemployment rate in Malaysia will decrease with the Economic Transformation Programme whereby 3.3 million jobs will be offered this year; this goes hand-in-hand with AEON’s new plans for 2014.
To add zest and dash of humor to the luncheon was none other than Harith Iskandar. Also seen at the luncheon was Dato’ Abdullah bin Mohd Yusof, Chairman of AEON CO. (M) BHD, Datuk Albert Chiang, Managing Director of Bonia Corporation Bhd, Ken Yamamoto, Managing Director of Unicharm, and Dato’ Eddie Choon, Managing Director of Poh Kong Jewellery Bhd.
