Malaysia is honoured to be the country to launch Global Entrepreneurship Week 2009. Having done extremely well as the 3rd most active country for GEW 2008, Malaysia and Warisan Global, the hosts for GEW in Malaysia, were given the honour of launching GEW 2009 on 21st January 2009 in our fair city of Kuala Lumpur.

The guests of honour at the launch were Dato’ Saifuddin Abdullah, the Deputy Minister of Entrepreneur Development, Malaysia and His Excellency Mr. Boyd McCleary, the British High Commissioner to Malaysia (on behalf of Mr.Gareth Thomas, MP, the British Minister of Trade who was supposed to launch it jointly with Dato Saifuddin but had to return urgently to Britain).

It was a fantastic and colorful occasion with more than 150 invited guests and GEW partners and even Bag Pipers and a lion dance to commerate the Chinese New Year on 26th January 2009. I must say, having been in Scotland for a few years, the Bag Pipers were top notch for a local group.

As HE Mr. McCleary said, this year Malaysia has to do better than 2008 and thats to be No. 1 in the world. Dash, my friend (CEO of Warisan Global) you have a great challenge ahead, but with everyone’s support I am sure we will achieve this target.

So everyone, lets help Dash, lets make Malaysia No. 1. Onward we go……
