A three-day programme was conducted from 17 to 19 October 2022, involving eight MIMA researchers comprised of representatives from all five research centres in MIMA. The Learning Attachment Programme at Port Klang is part of a series of field trips under Centre of Maritime Economics and Industries (CMEI) project, to give exposure to MIMA researchers so they can understand port operations and future planning and development in Port Klang.
This programme welcomes all researchers with the objective of increasing understanding of how Malaysian ports operate and develop, especially the top 12 busiest ports in the world.
In the afternoon, Mr Vijayaindiaran, Assistant General Manager of Port Klang Authority, greeted MIMA researchers with a comprehensive briefing on the present and future development of Port Klang. Datuk Dr Sabirin, the Director-General of MIMA, also attended the briefing session.
