Wanita MCA to hold seminar on managing corporate finances

The Star News Tuesday June 2, 2009

KUALA LUMPUR: Wanita MCA is organising a seminar to educate the public on how to manage their corporate finances during the current economic slowdown.

The June 25 to 28 seminar on “Threats and Opportunities After The Global Credit Crisis” will be conducted by Taiwanese financial expert Prof Wang Yun Jang in Penang, Kuala Lumpur and Johor.

Wanita MCA chairman Datin Paduka Chew Mei Fun said the talk, to be presented in Mandarin, is open to all races and is the third programme co-organised by the newly-set up women entrepreneur development centre and Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in Malaysia.

“The talk will focus on financial management, how to evaluate and diagnose a company’s financial status and manage corporate capital costs during challenging times,” she said at Wisma MCA yesterday.

Chew, who is also the centre’s chairman, said the seminar was timely because many businessmen were concerned about the impact of the economic slowdown and wanted to know if there was any chance for their businesses bouncing back.

The centre, to be launched in August, will act as a bridge between the public, the Government and financial institutions to assist people in applying for loans and to offer advice on their businesses.

For information on the seminar, log on to wanita.mca.org.my or call Wanita MCA at 03-2161 8044.

Admission fee is RM50 for the seminars in Kuala Lumpur and Johor while the talk in Penang which includes dinner, is RM80 for each participant.
