PETALING JAYA (Aug 19): Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and Malaysian Institute of Property and Facility Managers (MIPFM) today signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to form a partnership in supporting the continuing education of the built environment in the country.

 The MoU was signed by RICS head of Singapore, Southeast Asia Marcus Lim, and MIPFM president Sr Haji Adzman Shah bin Mohd Ariffin. It is the first MoU signed between the two highly-recognised professional bodies.

Through the MoU, both parties opt to cooperate and collaborate in supporting the continuing education of built environment practitioners, as well as raise the standard of the industry by jointly developing and providing seminars and talks.

“This is a significant moment for us as we form a new partnership with MIPFM and pave the path for both organisations to focus on and foster collaboration in mutually beneficial opportunities in Malaysia.

The MoU sets the stage for us to facilitate more exchanges and explore possible topics such as property management, facility management, strategic management, retail leasing and tenant management. We are already in talks to develop the joint activities and look forward to the prospect of further developing our partnership in the future,” RICS’ Lim said in a press statement today.
