The German Business Roundtable visits IKA Works in Rawang
21 June 2017. The spirit of 18 German Business Roundtable participants could not be dampened by the horrendous traffic situation in Kuala Lumpur during the last week of Ramadan. They managed to reach Rawang, where Managing Directors Tobias Amann and Joerg Lang hosted the Roundtable event at IKA Works (Asia) Sdn Bhd. As it turned out, the long drive had been worth it.
The participants were welcomed by Mr. Jens Brinckmann, Economic Counsellor at the German Embassy. This was followed by a presentation by Mr. Tobias Amann and Mr. Joerg Lang, a factory tour and a scrumptious dinner, during which some lively networking took place.
