An Evening of Farewells
In the evening of 14 June 2017, members of the Board of the Malaysian-German Chamber of Commerce and Industry together with representatives from the German Business Council organized a small farewell reception for Ambassador Michael at his residence.
MGCC President Dato’ Robert Teo Keng Tuan thanked Ambassador Michael for his commitment, dedication and hard work over the past four years and said that there will remain many happy memories of his time in Malaysia.
MGCC Executive Director Daniel Bernbeck and GBC representative Peter Lenhardt also expressed their thankfulness to the Ambassador, especially for his open door policy for any concerns of the German business community.
Ambassador Michael and his wife Hilary are looking back on a very busy and fruitful time during their posting to Malaysia and they are looking forward to new beginnings in Port-au-Spain, Trinidad and Tobago.
The Economic Affairs Department also took this opportunity to arrange for the signing of the endowment agreement between the German Embassy and the MGCC for the “Smart Cities Conference”, which will take place in October 2017.
