am pleased to share a few words in conjunction with the launch of Source Book for Architects & Designers 2020/2021. The Malaysian Timber Industry Board (MTIB) would like to commend Marshall Cavendish (M) Sdn Bhd for its continued dedication and hard work in promoting the Malaysian construction, architecture and supporting industries through this directory.
MTIB is a statutory body accredited to the Ministry of Primary Industries. It was established in 1973 by an Act of Parliament with the aim to promote and coordinate the overall development of the Malaysian timber industry. Among some of its objectives are to further enhance industrialization and upgrading of the timber industry with emphasis on value-added processing; promote and improve the markets and marketing of timber products; develop and promote standard in quality timber products as well as foster orderliness in timber trade.
In line with MTIB’s mission to enhance the growth of the industry through the provision of a conducive environment, it is right and timely that the publisher updates this directory for local and international readers to be acquainted with the latest local offerings.
We are proud of the industry’s achievement last year and remain optimistic of the prospects this year. Thank you for inviting MTIB to be part of this directory and our best wishes to the publisher in its future endeavours.
