Dayak Chamber of Commerce and Industry (DCCI) president Tan Sri Leo Moggie anak Irok today urged Dayak businessmen to prepare themselves well and continue supporting each other to achieve success.
Speaking at a Dayak Women Entrepreneurship Capacity Building workshop organised by DCCI in Sibu today, he said: “We must have a good understanding of commerce and industry if we want to be counted among the rest.”
Even though the chamber members have limited experience in the business sector, they have the advantage of learning from and emulating other communities who are successful in it, he said.
“We can see the kind of discipline needed and the kind of culture we need to acquire if we want to do business,” he added.
Moggie said DCCI will share such business exposure with its members who are determined to succeed.
He reminded the community that the future world will depend on monetary economics and not on subsistence farming.
“We cannot afford to wait as the world will not wait for us,” he said.
Moggie said he believed Dayak businessmen were just as capable as others as three of them have won the state government annual entrepreneurship awards since 2009.
He said this year’s winner, Bansa Untang, who represented the chamber, was a Kapit-based businessman. — BERNAMA
