t is with my great pleasure to welcome you as we embark on a new 2019. For me, all those years from our founding years were merely the beginning of our journey, to build a strong and sustainable koperasi for all to enjoy and reap the benefits with the promise of a better future to come.
Since KKSB’s inception in 2009, we as a company have been through countless local and global impediments. But every time, we have emerged even stronger and continued to grow our business successfully regardless. Reflecting on our journey, I attribute our success to our long-term strategic plans, our commitment to deliver quality products and services that provide 100% satisfaction to our members, our partners and the contribution from our incredible team of people to achieve our goals. In addition, our journey to sustainability has enabled us to create joint success with our stakeholders, by contributing back to the economy, society, the environment of Malaysia and towards the success of our Koperasi members.
KKSB’s culture is also another key attribute of our success. It is also reflected in our pursuit of equality. In our “Drive for Equality”, we focus our efforts in developing people, from grassroots to leaders, with education, skills and life-long learning, empowering them to achieve their highest potential and become contributors of positive impact to their communities. We also remain committed to developing our own people through our various people development programs.
We “Drive for Shared Success” with partners along our value chain by establishing long-term relationships that would transpire into long-term, mutual benefits. We are also committed to developing and growing our partners with us. Examples of this include our conference meetups where we bring our partners up to speed on our business strategy, expose them to new trends, as well as introduce sustainability concepts to them. We also engage actively with local communities in providing employment, stimulating the local economy, and promoting their local culture and heritage.
KKSB also applies to our relationships and commitment to give back to the communities in which we operate. We promote a social responsibility mindset and encourage our people to get involved.
I would like to take this opportunity to express my sincere gratitude for the continued trust, support and collaborations from our stakeholders, partners, management and staff who helped shape KKSB through our journey to sustainability over the past 10 years. I look forward to continue working together with you to create greater positive impact to our society and to our people for many more years.
Tan Sri Datuk Seri Dr. Suleiman Bin Mohamed
