“Sin Chew Daily was incorporated in 1929, and has continued publications in various circumstances; under British colonialism, Japanese Occupation, Independence Movement, as well as the early years of nationhood until today.

Sin Chew Daily was suspended on two occasions; first during the Japanese Occupation of Malaya and Singapore between 1942 and 1945, and the second time was when the Malaysian government suspended Sin Chew Daily’s licence under the Printing Presses and Publications Act in 1987. With the effort of the current chairman Tan Sri Sir Tiong Hiew King, Sin Chew Daily resumed publication on 8th April 1988.

Today, some 400,000 copies of the newspaper are sold each day, with more than 1.18 million people reading it in Malaysia, making Sin Chew Daily not only the best selling Chinese language newspaper in Southeast Asia, but also the largest Chinese language newspaper outside mainland China.

On 29 January 2007, Sin Chew Media Corporation and the Ming Pao Group of Hong Kong announced a merger program, and invited the participation of Nanyang Press Holdings. Under the merger program, the three media groups merged to form Media Chinese International Limited. Subsequently, Media Chinese International Limited took over Sin Chew Media Corporation’s listing status on the Main Board of Bursa Malaysia, to become the first company seeking a dual listing in both Malaysia and Hong Kong.

Ming Pao is published in three different editions in North America, namely Toronto, Vancouver and New York. Sin Chew also runs Cambodia Sin Chew Daily in Cambodia and Harian Indonesia in Indonesia.

The Federation of Chinese Associations Malaysia (Huazong) was founded in late 1991 as a leading Chinese national organization by the 13 State Chinese Assembly Halls in Malaysia. Its establishment is a long awaited result in realization of the common aspiration of the Chinese community.

Currently there are over 10,000 registered Chinese associations in Malaysia. Most of them are dialects groups, surname groups, trade associations, cultural and educational bodies. These associations are also the direct members of the respective Chinese Assembly Halls in various states, and indirectly members of Huazong. In other words, Huazong becomes the leading Chinese organization focuses in matters related to culture, education, economy and social of the Chinese community.

• To discuss and deal with matters of importance and interest to the members.
• To offer views on government policies and implementations affecting its members.
• To promote and participate in cultural, educational, social and economic work consistent with the Federal Constitution.
• To liaise with other societies having similar objectives as those of the Association in furtherance of the above objectives.

The objectives of Huazong and the 13 Chinese Assembly Halls encompass all aspects of cultural, educational, social and economic work while other Chinese associations are classified according to categories or objectives, namely dialect groups, surname groups, social welfare, culture, religions, trade, sports, youth, education etc.

For the past 27 years, we are proud of our achievements in various fields. With the support and cooperation offered by the Chinese community, we have successfully expressed the wishes of the Chinese community to the Government. We also voice out the opinions and the stand of the Chinese community on politics, economics, culture, education, social and religion, so that the problems faced by the Chinese community can be given timely concerns.

Huazong has frequently met with Cabinet Ministers, Deputy Ministers and Director General of Government agencies to discuss problems and issues faced by Chinese community.

Besides, Huazong has set up several cultural funds and education funds to sponsor various cultural projects, as well as to provide study loans and scholarship to needy students.

The Malaysia Chinese Culture Festival is the most successful event organized by Huazong and the 13 State Chinese Assembly Halls. The Malaysian Chinese Cultural Festival was first held in Selangor in 1984, after that it has become a yearly event organized by the 13 State Chinese Assembly Halls in rotation.

The activities and programs of the Malaysian Chinese Cultural Festival including lantern marching parades, cultural and literature seminars and lectures, cultural performances like various cultural dancing and singing from all races, lion dance or dragon dance, lantern making competitions, spring couplets and Chinese Calligraphy competitions, traditional Chinese martial arts demonstration, fashion show of Chinese costumes, traditional handycrafts exhibitions, food carnivals and food fairs.

Recently we have made the Malaysian Chinese Cultural Festival to reflect the roots and cultures of the various ethnics. The Malay and Indian cultural organizations have been invited to contribute some of the programs like Indian cultural dance or traditional Malay wedding reception and Dikir Barat performance. The Programs presented are usually portraying the ‘‘1 Malaysia’’ spirit of unity. We also invited the state Tourism Board to participate in the festival.

We believe that these activities will help in generating a greater interest of the public in Chinese cultural and also to promote a better understanding among various ethnics in Malaysia.

Since taking over office on 1-April 2018, the Committee led by President Prof. Dato’ Dr Jayles Yeoh, had put in much effort to organize regular Members’ Networking sessions to enable members to meet potential clients and also to identify opportunities for partnerships, joint ventures or new areas of expansion for their business. Members were also encouraged to bring in friends and associates who may be potential members.

The Committee had also touched base with the Embassies and High Commissions of the ASEAN countries to pave the way for future collaboration with them.

With the rapid evolving of e-commerce, retailers can now expand their business via the internet instead of setting up outlets and chain-stores. President Prof. Dato’ Dr Jayles believes that ARFF can contribute to e-Franchising & e-Retailing, befitting of its mission & vision. In view of this, during the 10th AGM held on 19 March 2019, a resolution was proposed and adopted to change the name of ASEAN Retail-Chains & Franchise Federation to ‘‘ASEAN Retailers & Franchise Federation’’ so that any form of retail & franchise business set up can become a member of ARFF.

A resolution was also passed to include an Associate Membership with no voting rights. This category of membership encompasses young entrepreneurs and Enterprise/Sole Proprietorship established below 3 years. The objective is to encourage new and young business owners to join as member and capitalize on Members’ Networking sessions to establish mutually beneficial relationship with other business owners and potential clients and/or customers. They can then later convert to Ordinary member. In this connection, the ARFF Youth Bureau was established under the leadership of Eddie Lim, Founder of Youth World Development Sdn Bhd.

Recent development also saw the reactivation of the Women Entrepreneur Bureau (WEB) which was formalized 3 years ago. The objectives of WEB is to promote cross learnings through education and training, to empower more women entrepreneurs in Malaysia to have more business opportunities. It aims to enrich its members towards personal, career and economic success across the ASEAN region. Miss Carmen Soo, who is the Deputy Treasurer has been appointed as the Chairlady to head this bureau.

The highlight of 2019 will be the staging of the ASEAN Outstanding Business Award (AOBA 2019) on 18 October, 2019 in the HXC Grand Ballroom located in ICC Pudu. AOBA founded in 2010 is organized to recognize ASEAN retail and franchise enterprises for their key accomplishments which make them stand out among their peers in terms of their commitment to the community, ethical behavior and environmental sustainability. It is also aimed to showcase the following:
• Recognition toward the achievement attained by leaders
• A mark of honour and encouragement for entrepreneurs and leaders
• Development of new leaders and upgrading of existing leaders
• Catalyst of growth for the country’s economic driver.
