Outsourcing Malaysia (OM) chairman David Wong said the APOS Summit in Iskandar, Johor, will also mark the start of a five-year partnership between OM and the International Association of Outsourcing Professionals (IAOP). "Outsourcing Malaysia is excited to be IAOP's partner in joint effort to escalate the growth of the outsourcing industry."

"Themed ' Creating sustained value for regional integration', and we truly look forward to bringing the outsourcing industry together in a synergistic platform of sharing and brainstorming to further develop the region's potential as a teeming outsourcing hub," said Wong.

Asia Pacific: a lucrative outsourcing market

"IAOP's initiatives such as 'Outsourcing's Global Value' will help delegates understand how to better increase efficiency, yield significant cost savings and drive growth, while remaining informed on the economic and social impact," said Hamill. "Asia Pacific is emerging as a lucrative market for outsourcing, both globally and domestically, so staying informed has never been so important."

OM's Wong said: "As Asean countries go borderless in 2015, trade in the region is set to increase and this is an opportunity for the outsourcing industry to accelerate economic growth, social progress and cultural development through possible joint ventures, partnerships or merger & acquisitions."
