LANGKAWI, June 25 (Bernama) -- The Malaysia Design Council (MRM) hopes to set up a sustainable ecosystem in the design industry via environmental, social and governance (ESG) principles.

Its chairman, Junady Nawawi said the delegates attending the five-day Asia Design Sharing (ADS) 2024, currently taking place till this Friday here, would be able to share expertise and views on how the ESG principles could be instilled into administration and ensure a sustainable and prosperous future for generations to come.

“Delegates (design professionals) from five countries - Malaysia, Korea, the Philippines, Thailand and Indonesia are part of the ADS this year, while new members from Vietnam and Singapore have been unable to attend the seminar session this time.

"They get to share their knowledge with design professions from five Asian countries who attended this yearly seminar under the ADS platform,” he told Bernama here today, adding that a council member meeting today was holding a draw to determine the host the next seminar session.

He also shared that various topics and issues based on 'Empowering ESG Through Design' were discussed, and opportunities to foster partnerships via the ADS platform were also explored.

MRM also hoped that the next ADS would be held in the country next year as Malaysia would chair the ASEAN Summit 2025, Junady said.

"As hosts, MRM hopes that the government will consider and support ADS 2025 be held here,” he said.

MRM is an agency under the Investment, Trade and Industry Ministry set up in 1993, and acts as a think tank and programme advisors to spur expertise, capabilities and standards in the national design industry.
