回顾与展望

茶业在马来西亚的可持续发展

 

承蒙我会会员和理事会的支持和厚爱,三度推选本人出任会长,我藉此表达衷心的感谢和感恩。我当全力以赴,与诸位理事携手迈步,为我会以及马来西亚茶业的推进和提升锲而不舍。

 

感谢卸任会长李健荣在过去的两年里,凭坚韧的精神领军我会平稳前进,马不停蹄地在国内外主持了、参与了数之不清的茶业活动,为2017年马来西亚国际茶与咖啡博览会 [MITCE 2017] 的顺利举办全力护航,让我会“茶缘天下”不间断。在极度忙碌之中,李会长甚至启动了一场空前的“茶业 · 岁月”梳理工程,将本会六十多年来的会务档案、会馆资料以及收藏品逐一挖掘和整顿,组织了由执行秘书黄宇琛统筹落实的编委会,为本会以“60周年甲子纪念特刊”为基础的创新参考书目编辑出版铺垫,让马来西亚茶业历史有所寻迹,让一众茶魂有所归于,让本会会员以及更多的茶友对茶叶和茶业的漫漫前路有所期待和展望。

 

本会刊物《茶事茶味》创刊至今已出版了十九期,出版委员会主席的重任将由副财政李泽威接棒肩负,主编依然由黄宇琛担当中流砥柱,李健荣和锺慧雯则分别负责督导和顾问的工作,希望我会会员、马来西亚茶业界同仁以及各路茶人继续支持这一本有缘和世界各国茶人分享的刊物,不管是广告赞助、内容献议、摄影撰稿、翻译文稿等等方式,无任欢迎。

 

2018年10月,我会将迎来第62届周年庆,希望年轻一代的会员踊跃提出联欢晚宴主题和活动构思。眼下我会将积极招揽新生代茶人参与活络我会、盼其引领我会融入时代潮流,甚至牵头茶业时尚趋势。更重要的是,我会已把传承工作列为重点任务,积极培养中生代理事和会员接力会务,为我会的持续发展以及马来西亚茶业的可持续发展努力不懈!

 

今仍以人生座右铭“俯仰无愧天地,褒贬自有春秋”作为结束语。

 

共勉之。

 

TEA TRADE ASSOCIATION OF MALAYSIA

32ND TERM (2018-2020) NEW BOARD OF COMMITTEE MEMBERS

INAUGURATION CEREMONY SPEECH

BY 3-TERM CHAIRMAN, Ir. C K Liew

of KONG WOOI FONG TEA MERCHANTS SDN. BHD.

 

I am indeed greatly honoured to be elected chairman for the third time and I wish to express my sincere thanks and appreciation for the support shown by the committee and the members.  I pledge to do my utmost to work together with the committee members to promote and boost the Association and the tea industry.

I am grateful to the outgoing chairman Lee Ken Eng, who has been leading the Association with determination and perseverance.  The Association has been advancing steadily in the past two years, having hosted and participated in countless activities, both locally and overseas.  Under his able leadership, our Association successfully hosted the Malaysia International Tea & Coffee Expo 2017 (MITCE2017).  Despite his busy schedule, Lee Ken Eng passionately embarked on an unprecedented project, the "Cha Ye. Sui Yue."  Through this project he managed to gather and reorganised all the historical archives of the Association and its collections.  He also set up an editorial board for the publication of the book "60th Anniversary Special Edition of Tea Trade Association of Malaysia", which is led by the executive secretary, Wong Yee Chen.  It is Lee Ken Eng's fervent hope that the book will serve as a resource and reference book for those interested in the history of the tea industry in Malaysia.  The magazine will enable the members of the Association and tea lovers to have a better understanding of the tea industry, the expectations and its prospects in Malaysia. 

The Association's bulletin known as "tea.time" is currently in its 19th issue.  William Lee, the deputy treasurer, has been appointed to lead the Editorial committee.  Wong Yee Chen shall continue to hold the fort as the editor-in-chief.  Both Lee Ken Eng and Vivien Choong are to oversee and provide advice.  It is hoped that our Association's members, Malaysian tea traders and tea lovers will continue to support this invaluable publication and share it with the world.  Support in the form of advertisement, sponsorships, contents offer, articles with photography or translated content of articles, etc. are all welcome.  

Come October 2018, our Association will be celebrating its 62nd Anniversary.  We hope our younger members will be actively involved by contributing ideas and activities towards the theme of the celebration.  Currently our Association is aggressively recruiting new members and getting them actively involved in our Association's activities.  It is hoped that the new blood would be able to carve new trends to bring our Association and the tea industry to greater heights.  Most importantly, the Association is prioritising the grooming of successors such that future board committee members and ordinary members can successfully run the Association and achieve sustainable development together with the tea industry.

Let this motto help to conclude my speech, " A man's reputation is determined by his good work." Let us be encouraged.
