Malaysian Association of Pharmaceutical Suppliers (MAPS)
President's Message - February 2018
I would like to wish you a Happy Chinese New Year. Many of you may be returning to your hometown, whether or not you are Chinese. Such is the uniqueness of our country, where we take time to celebrate our cultural diversity.
I would like to record my thanks and congratulations to the regulatory sub-committee, for organizing the 1-day Workshop on Regulatory Updates on 18th January where 6 Regulatory Officials from the NPRA interacted with 39 participants from 23 member Companies. It was a huge success and special thanks to GS Beh, SM Chong and Tammy Lim for their sacrifice in making it a success. Not to forget, Medispec that has always been our gracious host, also a big thank you.
The Annual General Meeting is less than 2 months away, and with the CNY holidays coming up, we anticipate that it will arrive sooner than we think. As a reminder, please make this a priority, to attend the AGM scheduled for March 20th. This is an election year, and I trust you will want to elect a board that carries your confidence in representing our collective interests.

Why we exist
The first gathering of “like-minded” interest Group for the formation of the “Malaysian Association of Pharmaceutical Suppliers (MAPS)” was on 17th March 2011 held in the premise of Medispec, Taman Mayang, Petaling Jaya.
MAPS was formally registered with the Registrar of Society on the 17th November 2011.
It was formed to fill in the "missing piece" in the trade representation in the Pharmaceutical Industry.
MAPS is having representations and engaging with the relevant Government bodies like the Bahagian Farmasi, BPFK, PEMANDU, MyCC, etc, on issues relating to the pharmaceutical trade.
MAPS is in the forefront of issues facing the Industry which means that the voices and interests of MAPS will be heard and considered. Thus, MAPS will have the opportunity to continuously collaborate and consult on the policies and regulations affecting the industry.
