Datuk Seri Ahmad Shabery Cheek, Minister of Communication and Multimedia, Malaysia (KKMM) has invited AIBD members and partners to participate in the Asia Media Summit 2015 in Kuala Lumpur, as the AMS returns again to its original home in Malaysia after an absence of six years.
“I welcome you all as we open the doors to Asia Media Summit 2015, and wish you all a very warm ‘Selamat Datang’ or ‘Welcome’,” he said at the closing ceremony of the Asia Media Summit 2014 on 7May 2014 in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
Malaysia previously held the first five editions of the Asia Media Summit from 2004 to 2008.
During his remarks, Datuk Seri Ahmad Shabery Cheek presented a short promotional video clip on Kuala Lumpur and Malaysia where you will find both history and modernity.
“As host for the Asia Media Summit 2015, the Ministry of Communication and Multimedia, Malaysia would like to invite guests to enjoy the rich cultural diversity, enticing variety of cuisine, tropical beauty and terrific shopping locations of our country as it provides a vibrant backdrop for this esteemed conference. As delegates once again meet to engage and challenge the horizons of what is possible in broadcasting, we encourage them to embrace the ‘Malaysia Truly Asia’ experience that only Malaysia can offer,” he said.
"We promise you the Summit will be a success and in cooperation with AIBD. We as the local host will organise a very professional conference with high quality conference topics and speakers,” he said.
The KKMM Minister also congratulated AIBD for yet another successful AMS, and for over a decade of efforts in staging lively debates and much-needed discussion on the most critical issues facing the broadcast industry, all in one unique forum.
The next Asia Media Summit will be held in Kuala Lumpur from 26-28 May 2015, hosted by KKMM and IPPTAR and organized by AIBD.
