Dato’ Abdul Majid needs no further introduction as he has a highly distinguished career spanning over three decades in the civil service including the Prime Minister’s Department as well as several Malaysia Missions abroad and senior positions in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. He has also carved a name among Malaysia’s illustrious personalities, especially in the corporate world. He is on several boards of companies including three public listed companies in Malaysia. Dato’ Abdul Majid holds a Bachelor of Economics (Honours) from the University of Malaya.
The new chairman succeeds Tan Sri Amirsham A. Aziz, whose term has ended in 2018 after six years of distinguished service. MIDA would like to express its sincere appreciation to Tan Sri Amirsham for his contributions and dedication to the organisation and the country.
As someone with such a vast experience, Dato’ Abdul Majid’s leadership will be invaluable to MIDA, particularly in the context of the organisation’s efforts in attracting more quality investments that translate to tangible benefits felt by all Malaysians.
MIDA is the government's principal promotion agency under the Ministry of International Trade and Industry (MITI) to oversee and drive investments into the manufacturing and services sectors in Malaysia. Starting operations in 1967 with a relatively small set up of 37 staff, MIDA has grown to become a strong and dynamic organisation of over 700 employees. Headquartered in Kuala Lumpur Sentral, MIDA today has 12 regional and 20 overseas offices.
