Australia: Malaysia will be hosting the (International Federation of Surveyors) FIG Congress in 2014. The decision was taken at the recently concluded FIG Congress 2010 in Sydney, Australia.
FIG 2014 will translate into an unparalleled opportunity for (Association of Authorised Land Surveyors of Malaysia) PEJUTA to uplift the image of the Malaysian Surveying and Mapping Industry. The event is set to generate a huge exposure for the Industry in addition to boosting Malaysia’s tourism industry in 2014.
The other ‘feather in the cap’ for the Malaysian Surveying and Mapping Industry was the FIG General Assembly’s election of Teo Chee Hai as the new FIG President for the period 2011-2014. Teo won over Matt Higgins from Australia and Iain Greenway from the United Kingdom.
