Harvey Lister AM, chairman and chief executive of ASM Global APAC and Gulf Region, said that the partnership is a further indication of the region’s growth.
“We firmly believe the Malaysia National Stadium and the Axiata Arena have the potential expressed by the Malaysia Sports Ministry.”
ASM Global has also announced an upcoming partnership with local Malaysian company Sportswork Sdn Bhd to deliver services for Kuala Lumpur Sports City.
Malaysia sports minister, Y.B. Dato’ Seri Ahmad Faizal bin Dato’ Azumu, said: “We see this MOU as a great opportunity for PSM and ASM Global to enhance Kuala Lumpur Sports City.
“Both National Stadium Bukit Jalil and Axiata Arena are iconic properties owned by the Malaysian people, and we owe them a responsibility to ensure these venues make us proud.”
