Good morning.

Salutation

First of all, I would like to put forward my sincere thanks to all present for putting aside your precious time to be with us this morning at today’s seminar. It is with great pleasure to welcome you to this seminar on “Asia Pacific’s Preferred International Business and Financial Centre”. The seminar here in Shanghai is part of the Labuan’s road shows in greater China.


About the Seminar

Ladies and Gentlemen

The series of investment seminars by Labuan’s marketing arm, Labuan IBFC Inc. or LIBFC is aimed at enhancing the investors’ awareness on the Labuan financial sector and sharing the exciting prospects offered by the Centre to meet the needs of the regional and international business communities. This initiative is drawn in line with the strategic direction of the Labuan IBFC in maintaining its position as the preferred financial centre in the Asia Pacific and its role in advancing regional financial inter-linkages under Malaysia’s Financial Sector Blueprint.
Our selection of destination for the road shows demonstrates the importance of China, in particular Shanghai, in the global economy and financial systems, particularly in trade and investments. Opportunities in Asia are definitely abundant, with China becoming an engine of growth for other economies in Asia. It is expected that the economic and financial developments that are currently taking place would continue to promote growth in a more connected Asian with significant expansion in intra-regional trade, investment and financial flows, and with Shanghai playing a key role in the flows. It is within this exciting intra-regional business opportunities that Labuan IBFC offers its value propositions as the ideal jurisdiction to domicile your business.

Labuan IBFC is home to 60 international banks and more than 200 insurance companies. The conducive business eco-system has and will continue to be important in reinforcing the prospects of businesses to advance their opportunities in the region.
The Labuan IBFC facilitates the creation of new and innovative products and structures, including holding and trading companies, protected cell companies for the business community. Labuan foundations, Labuan special trust, private trust companies and other financial planning services are becoming popular for private wealth management.
