KUALA LUMPUR, July 11 (Bernama) -- Allianz Malaysia Bhd's chief executive officer, Jens Reisch, has been elected president of the Malaysian-German Chamber of Commerce and Industry (MGCC) for 2013/14.

In a statement today, MGCC said as president, Reisch, together with the other members of the board of directors, will drive the strategic plans of the chamber and continue to focus on increasing its value to its members and stakeholders.

Reisch said most companies faced the shortage of human resources, especially the availability of sufficient specialised workers and positions.

"The corporate sector must continue to work closely with the government and other organisations to find and initiate solutions to this key issue.

"I think some German concepts and experiences can be very valuable and relevant for Malaysia in that regard," he said.

He said many German companies that had invested in Malaysia were considering it for their start-ups or ventures. -- BERNAMA
