Malaysian Timber Council Appoints Ridens/Lindblom for Public Relations on Sustainable Timber Trade

The Malaysian Timber Council (MTC)[1] has appointed public relations partner agencies Ridens and Lindblom to support the Council in promoting sustainable Malaysian timber trade and developing the market for Malaysian timber products in the EU.

 

“We are excited to take this step, which illustrates the importance we give to the sustainability of our forestry and timber industry. We realise that this is also an important issue for our stakeholders in Europe including the regulators. We therefore want to step up our efforts to make our European audience familiar with the measures Malaysia has taken and the schemes we have implemented for a sustainable forestry and timber industry at the highest environmental standards[2]”.

Mr. Muhtar Suhaili – Chief Executive Officer of the Malaysian Timber Council

“We are delighted to assist the Malaysian Timber Council. We know that MTC has a very important message to convey and is of inspiration to players of the timber industry worldwide. We aim to inform EU citizens of MTC and the Malaysian timber industry’s commitment to sustainability in Malaysia and globally. We are honoured to represent and assist them in achieving their objectives.”

Ms. Rebecca Lentini – Director of Ridens Public Affairs

Ridens Public Affairs and Lindblom Public Relations Public Affairs will assist MTC by supporting the Malaysian timber industry and conveying their sustainable vision in Europe.
