After months of concerted efforts in pursuit of excellence, the Association of Young Filipino-Chinese Entrepreneurs (Anvil Business Club) is beginning to see the fruits of its endeavors, not the least of which comes from the Malaysia External Trade Development Corporation (MATRADE), Malaysia's National Trade Promotion Agency.

It citied the Anvil Business Club's "catalytic role in bringing together many of the country's biggest business organizations to partner with MATRADE in identifying and developing areas of cooperation between both countries’ private sectors and encouraging further investment in both the Philippines and Malaysia, thereby accelerating the development of trade links between both countries."

Handing the award was outgoing Malaysian Trade Commissioner and MATRADE's Counselor for Export Promotion, The Honorable Har Man Ahmad. Accepting the special citation on behalf of the Anvil Business Club was Peter Mangasing, the organization's Chairman of the Board.

In a touching, five-minute speech, Commissioner Ahmad repeatedly and profusely praised the Club for "laying the great foundations of friendship between MATRADE and the business organizations in the Philippines," saying that, "were it not for the Anvil Business Club, the Commission's great milestones today will not be made possible."

A government-run corporation created in 1992 through Malaysian Parliament Act No. 490, MATRADE primarily aims to promote Malaysia’s exports, which has since enabled many local companies to carve new frontiers in global markets. Today as they continue to put the spotlight on capable Malaysian companies on the international stage, MATRADE is helping make the phrase "Made-In-Malaysia" synonymous with excellence, reliability and trustworthiness.

Congratulations and more power!
