The delegates are from the ASEAN Nation, Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, Indonesia, Myanmar, Philippines, Thailand, Singapore, Vietnam and not to forget our own country Malaysia.

We are glad that you all have landed here in Kuantan & hope that you will have a pleasant stay. Our team is ready to assist you in your need and interest. We hope that we will meet your expectation. While you are here, please take the opportunity to explore the city of Kuantan. Kuantan is the largest city in the East Coast of Malaysia with approximately 607,700 population. It is situated near the mouth of Kuantan River and faces the South China Sea. No wonder Kuantan’s main sight seeing attraction is the beautiful scenic beaches. Our team have planned for the delegates to have the excitement and enjoyment of one of the beaches by having lunch at the famous beach of Teluk Chempedak on the 24th of November.

If delegates like shopping, East Coast Mall, a shopping mall of 1 million sq feet of build-up area is located just in front of this hotel.

Distinguished delegates, I would suggest you to refer to your programme of activities book which have being provided to you during the registration. It is important to do so as to make sure that you all will not miss the excitement and benefit of the programme. I hope that the delegates will have a memorable time ini the next three days and I would like to wish all a fruithful gathering and networking.
Last but far from least, I wish to take this opportunity to thank all for participating in this opening ceremony of the 37th ASEAN Ports Association Meeting.
