Message by Chief Minister of Penang

On behalf of the Penang State Government, welcome back for another successful instalment of Food & Hotel Penang (FHP), which made its debut in 2014.

Having played host to more than 2,000 trade visitors from 17 countries, in addition to 240 participating companies from 30 countries and two International Group Pavilions, this event is the only F&B related trade show in Malaysia’s Northern region. It has also certainly established itself in Penang and for the hospitality industry as a whole.

Given the success of that inaugural event, I am confident that FHP 2016 will be even bigger and better, surpassing the success of its forerunner, with so much more to offer.

There is no denying that when it comes to the hospitality and F&B industries, no other state in Malaysia can boast so much expertise and diversity. This glorious state known as the “Pearl of the Orient” is renowned internationally as a food and gourmet paradise. Moreover, according to the figure by Tourism Malaysia, Penang also houses 206 hotels, offering more than 18,000 rooms as at 2014.

These facts and figures by themselves bear testament that the multi-billion ringgit hospitality and F&B industries are fundamental pillars of current and future socio-economic progress of Penang. They have spurred jobs and business opportunities. They have championed the promotion of Penang’s rich and diverse heritage the world over.

Events such as Food & Hotel Penang, therefore, play a vital role, not only as a core fundamental to these industries, but also as a catalyst towards their growth. We witnessed the convergence and participation of key industry players from all over the world and once again, we are proud to host Food & Hotel Penang 2016.

My heartiest congratulations go out to the Organisers for heeding our call to make this event a regular affair, which I am confident, will fulfill our aspirations of transforming Penang into an international and intelligent city. I wish FHP 2016 every success and pledge the fullest support and cooperation of the Penang State Government in this regard.

Welcome back to Penang FHP!
