On 12th March 2021, Lyu En, Vice President of China Enterprises Chamber of Commerce in Malaysia (CECCM) cum President of CECCM Construction Industry (branch) led the committee members of CECCM to visit Zainora Zainal, the State Director of Construction Industry Development Board (CIDB) of KL.
Lyu En briefly introduced the work development of CECCM (Construction Industry branch) since its establishment. He also thanked Zainora Zainal, State Director of CIDB KL for her continuous support to the work of CECCM Construction Industry. Lyu En reported three main concerns that were faced by the CECCM Construction Industry. Firstly, China-funded construction companies in Malaysia generally face difficulties in applying employee visas. This has increased the operational challenges. Secondly, due to the impact of the pandemic control and shutdown, construction progress has been delayed. This has caused business contract disputes and legal risks cases to increase. Lastly, the cost of pandemic prevention has continued to increase at the request of the government, such as operation and isolation cost.
Zainora Zainal welcomed the visit of the CECCM (Construction Industry branch) and shared the work of CIDB KL branch in terms of pandemic control, foreign labor management, vaccination, and express her support to all the construction companies. She also answered several questions about the construction industry professional visa application and shared the guide for temporary dormitories for construction workers at multi-storey construction sites in Kuala Lumpur.
