KUALA LUMPUR (Sin Chew Daily) — Malaysia Retail Chain Association (MRCA) president Datuk Liaw Choon Liang pointed out that SMEs in the country must be bold to try out innovative new operational models in the face of stringent globalization challenges.

He added that businesses would eventually be wiped out if they still held on to the traditional ways of doing business, given the current economic doldrums experienced by the country.

He said after receiving the Sin Chew Business Excellence Awards nomination forms at Menara Maxis that Sin Chew Business Excellence Awards was one of the very few authoritative awards in Malaysia, and that the Malaysia Retail Chain Association would continue to sponsor and participate as member of the panel of judges in this year's event. He urged local businesses not to miss the opportunity and register for this year's event.

"Winning the awards means a company's branding is well recognized by the industry. This is indeed a very rare opportunity not to be missed. As such I would like to urge eligible Malaysian businesses to actively take part."

Meanwhile, Sin Chew Business Excellence Awards 2015 working committee chairman Lenny Chiah hoped businesses with over a hundred years of history would take part in the event so that their time-honored brands could continue to prosper for many more years to come.

"Hundred year old brands are a treasured rarity in the market. And I hope the owners of these brands can join us for this year's Sin Chew Business Excellence Awards so that all Malaysians could witness together their glorious moments."

Sin Chew Business Excellence Awards is now open for nomination. Closing date is June 15.

There are a total of eight categories, namely Lifetime Excellence Achievement Award, Business Excellence Person of the Year Award, Business Sustainability Excellence Award, Retail Excellence Award, Product & Service Quality Excellence Award, CSR Excellence Award, Property Excellence Award, and Young / Emerging Business Excellence Award.
