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.
