Mr. Azlam Shah Alias
Director of Government Relations, Tesco Stores (Malaysia) Sdn. Bhd.
EUMCCI Board of Directors
My past contributions are mainly in the advocacy with key stakeholders to ensure Tesco and EU companies are given fair and equal treatment in the distributive trade areas whilst undertaking robust plans in developing SMEs suppliers, transformation of mom and pop shops and also exports to countries where Tesco operates. I believe that I would be able to contribute to the success of the chambers given my wide experience dealing with the Government on many wide ranging industry issues.
