DUBAI, April 16 (Bernama) -- Malaysian exhibitors at the Malaysia Services Exhibition (MSE) 2010 here, identified potential projects to the tune of RM12 billion (US$3.43 billion) on the first two days of the three-day event, which ended yesterday.

According to Malaysia External Trade Development Corporation (Matrade) Deputy Chief Executive Officer Datuk Mohamad Kamarudin Hassan, the amount corresponded to 174 projects, and exceeded the RM8.47 billion recorded for the whole of MSE 2009.

"The projects identified are not only in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) but also in Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Yemen, Iraq, India, Libya, Sudan, Oman, Syria, Uzbekistan and Ethiopia," he told Malaysian media at the conclusion of the show at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre.

The potential projects encompass architectural design services, renewable energy, oil and gas, construction of houses and roads, property development and distribution of information communication technology solutions.

The rest are projects involving hospital management, maintenance of mechanical facilities, water treatment and waste management, training and landscaping.

The first two days of MSE 2010 registered 2,033 quality trade visitors, 2,500 business enquiries and 289 potential clients or partners.

"As the organiser of MSE 2010, Matrade is satisfied with the achievements seen at the exhibition," Mohamad Kamarudin said, adding that, final figures in terms of confirmed and projected deals, are still being tabulated.

He reckoned that MSE 2010 had attained the objectives of creating awareness on the capabilities of Malaysian service providers, enhancing the image of Malaysia and branding the services sector in the region and beyond.

Nevertheless, he urged the Malaysian companies involved to follow up on trade leads and contacts made during MSE 2010, the third such exhibition organised by Matrade.

The inaugural MSE 2008 took place in the neighbouring emirate of Sharjah while MSE 2009 was held in Dubai.

A total of 180 Malaysian exhibitors comprising 150 service providers and 30 agencies participated in MSE 2010 which was opened by International Trade and Industry Minister Datuk Seri Mustapa Mohamed, with the guest of honour being UAE's Foreign Trade Minister Sheikha Lubna Al Qasimi.
