"Sabah-Hub for the Far East speaks of optimism for the State to be lifted to a higher economic status given its rich resources and strategic location within Asean economies. Coupled with social and political stability, Sabah provides a conducive environment not only for business but also travel and living."
Datuk Seri Panglima Musa Haji Aman
Chief Minister of Sabah
The Sabah International Expo (SIE) is Sabah's premier business fair and a State Government-sanctioned trade exposition. It is held biennially in Kota Kinabalu City, Sabah, Malaysia.
SIE 2014 will be the eight since its inception. It is being jointly organized by the State Government of Sabah, the Federation of Sabah Industries (FSI) and the Malaysian International Chamber of Commerce & Industry (MICCI) Sabah Branch. Since the inaugural event in 2000, SIE has become one of the largest and most successful trade events in BIMP-EAGA (Brunei-Indonesia-Malaysia-Philippines - East Asean Growth Area).
The main objective of SIE is to provide a platform for exhibitors from near and far to meet; to establish business contacts; to showcase latest products and services that meet the demand of the BIMP-EAGA markets specifically and ASEAN markets broadly.
To compliment the exposition, an International Business Luncheon Talk will be organised simultaneously with the exposition to enable exhibitors, business leaders, policy makers, investors, venture capitalists, CEOs and others in the surrounding region or beyond to meet; to exchange latest business ideas; to identify trade and investment opportunities; and to learn more about doing business in the BIMP-EAGA and ASEAN.
