GOPIO invites the PIO Community to celebrate these successful entrepreneurs and wish them even greater successes.

The Objectives

  • As an economic partner, PIO Community will be able to engage with the Government and institutions for mutual growth. Dialogues are possible and effective when the participants are all stakeholders and contributors to the country’s economy.
  • GOPIO’s campaign that one third of the PIO Community will be entrepreneurs is to initiate a self remedying mechanism to reposition the PIO Community as a merit equity partner in Malaysia’s economy. Further, a larger number of PIO entrepreneurs will help reach out to the needy in the community.
