The Hon. Minister of International Trade and Industry, Dato’ Sri Mustapa Mohamed will be leading a Trade & Investment Mission to Europe from 7-13 March 2010. The Hon. Minister will be accompanied by a group of leading Malaysian businessmen and senior government officials.
In conjunction with the mission, a seminar on “Trade & Investment Opportunities in Advanced Engineering and Life Sciences in Malaysia” will be held on Friday, 12 March 2010 at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel, National Exhibition Centre (NEC), Birmingham B40 1PP, United Kingdom.
The event is jointly organised by the Malaysian Industrial Development Authority (MIDA) and Malaysia External Trade Corporation (MATRADE) in collaboration with UK Trade & Investment (UKTI), British Chambers of Commerce (BCC) and Midlands World Trade Forum (MWTF).
The Hon. Minister will deliver a keynote address at the seminar, which will focus on current economic environment in Malaysia; latest prevailing business environment and opportunities in the country; facilities and incentives offered by the government and advantages of Malaysia as a strategic hub for operations in the region. Participants of the seminar will also have the opportunity to hold dialogues with the Hon. Minister; establish networking with Malaysian businessmen as well as the opportunity to explore potential business collaboration or alliance in Malaysia and UK.
Invitations are now open. If you would like to attend this event, please contact MIDA London:MIDA London

A University of Oklahoma astrophysicist and his Chinese collaborator have found two supermassive black holes in Markarian 231, the nearest quasar to Earth, using observations from NASA's Hubble Space Telescope.
The discovery of two supermassive black holes--one larger one and a second, smaller one--are evidence of a binary black hole and suggests that supermassive...
A team of European researchers have developed a model to simulate the impact of tsunamis generated by earthquakes and applied it to the Eastern Mediterranean. The results show how tsunami waves could hit and inundate coastal areas in southern Italy and Greece. The study is published today (27 August) in Ocean Science, an open access journal of the European Geosciences Union (EGU).
Though not as frequent as in the Pacific and Indian oceans, tsunamis also occur in the Mediterranean, mainly due to earthquakes generated when the African...
In mountainous regions earthquakes often cause strong landslides, which can be exacerbated by heavy rain. However, after an initial increase, the frequency of these mass wasting events, often enormous and dangerous, declines, in fact independently of meteorological events and aftershocks.
These new findings are presented by a German-Franco-Japanese team of geoscientists in the current issue of the journal Geology, under the lead of the GFZ...
Bacteria do not cease to amaze us with their survival strategies. A research team from the University of Basel's Biozentrum has now discovered how bacteria enter a sleep mode using a so-called FIC toxin. In the current issue of “Cell Reports”, the scientists describe the mechanism of action and also explain why their discovery provides new insights into the evolution of pathogens.
For many poisons there are antidotes which neutralize their toxic effect. Toxin-antitoxin systems in bacteria work in a similar manner: As long as a cell...
It comes when called, bringing care utensils with it and recording how they are used: Fraunhofer IPA is developing an intelligent care cart that provides care staff with physical and informational support in their day-to-day work. The scientists at Fraunhofer IPA have now completed a first prototype. In doing so, they are continuing in their efforts to improve working conditions in the care sector and are developing solutions designed to address the challenges of demographic change.
Technical assistance systems can improve the difficult working conditions in residential nursing homes and hospitals by helping the staff in their work and...
