Distinguish Guests, Ladies and Gentlemen,

A very Good Afternoon.

I would like to express my appreciation for the invitation to officiate the opening ceremony of the Dialight Penang Sdn Bhd. I also wish to congratulate the organizers for their efforts in organizing this event.

In 2011, the Malaysian economy registered a growth of 5.1% and Penang, as we all know, has evolved to become one of Malaysia’s leading manufacturing industries which contribute towards 25% of Malaysia's imports and exports.

In 2010, investments for Penang topped RM12.24 billion making Penang the top investment state for the first time in history. Penang recorded RM9.1 Billion last year and this once again placed Penang as the top investment state once again. More impressively, despite having 6% of the country’s population, Penang contributed 30% of Malaysia’s FDI over the last 2 years of 2010 and 2011. This shows that Penang is an attractive and the preferred location for investors. Over the last 4 years since 2008, Penang has attracted RM25 billion in FDI.

Today, our challenge which I also see it as an opportunity for the state is to maintain Penang competitive edge by converting into a knowledge-based and innovation-driven economy. The Penang state government has taken tangible steps to improve both the quantity and quality of higher education and boosting technological readiness, particularly information and communications technology penetration. The steps include the establishment of the Penang Science Council to transform Penang into a centre of excellence for science and technology, the soon to be Asian Women Leadership University (AWLU) in Penang, together with the expansion of Penang Skills Development Corporation (PSDC) to train technicians and specialists needed by high-tech companies should serve as an incubator to develop knowledge, skills and human capital.

Given Penang’s 40 years of industrial experience, the state needs to also target other sunrise industries for further growth: Electronic products and components, Light emitting diodes (LED), Medical devices, Photovoltaic (PV), Biotechnology and Automation and today we are pleased to have a world-renowned company like Dialight in Penang. Headquatered in the UK and listed on the London Stock Exchange, Dialight Penang’s facility is the 8th around globe after having its presence in UK, USA, Denmark, Germany, Australia, Japan, and Mexico. The Penang’s presence is a strong acknowledgement of the strategic importance of Penang for the LED industry.

According to McKinsey's 2011 lighting market report, the estimated global revenues from the LED lighting market will grow at 30% per annum, amounting to almost 65 billion Euros (RM227bil) by 2020 almost 60% of the overall lighting market. Malaysia has a 10% world market share for the LED market; three of the world’s five largest LED manufacturers have operations in Penang.

With presence of other key LED manufacturers such as Philips Lumileds, Osram, CREE (via sub-contractors Isotech) and Avago with R&D and manufacturing facilities in Penang for decades, the state government is equally excited with the presence of Dialight’s 40,000 sq ft facility as it is the world leader in visual indicator components. Dialight offers a wide selection of LED products which are specifically for hazardous locations, obstruction lighting, traffic and rail signalling. These LED products can vastly reduce maintenance, save energy, improve safety and ease disposal.

Lastly, but not least, a vote of thanks for the Dialight leader for making the right choice in deciding on Penang to apply its new and innovative LED technologies with the aim to thrive in a highly competitive market.

Thank You
