SDSI Jana Jualan RM110 Juta
Program Bertemu Pelanggan yang julung
kali diperkenalkan menerusi Showcase
Satu Daerah Satu Industri (SDSI) 2015
pada 6 Disember 2015 di Melaka berjaya
menjana jualan bernilai RM110 juta.
Inisiatif yang diperkenalkan Kementerian
Perdagangan Antarabangsa dan Industri
itu melibatkan 83 syarikat bumiputera
tempatan dan disertai oleh 21 pelabur dari
luar negara termasuk Hong Kong, China,
Myanmar, Afrika Selatan, Indonesia, Arab
Saudi, Filipina dan Thailand.
Menteri Perdagangan Antarabangsa dan Industri, Dato’ Sri Mustapa Mohamed berkata, program yang
telah diadakan sejak 3 Disember lalu itu melibatkan pelbagai kategori produk termasuk makanan dan
minuman, kesihatan dan kecantikan serta kraf tangan.
“Tujuan kita mengadakan program ini adalah untuk memudahkan usahawan-usahawan bumiputera dari
luar bandar supaya mereka menerokai pasaran dunia bukan setakat di Malaysia. Jualan RM110 juta yang
dicatatkan 83 syarikat ini merupakan satu kejayaan yang harus dibanggakan,” katanya dalam sidang
akhbar selepas merasmikan Showcase SDSI 2015 yang disertai 471 pempamer dari dalam dan luar
negara di Pusat Dagangan Antarabangsa Melaka (MITC), Ayer Keroh di sini semalam. Turut hadir sama
ialah Ketua Menteri Melaka, Datuk Seri Idris Haron.
Showcase SDSI yang diadakan selama empat hari bermula 3 Disember lalu, terbahagi kepada empat
kluster utama iaitu makanan dan minuman, inap desa, produk kesihatan dan kecantikan serta kraf tangan.
Satu kluster baharu iaitu per­
khid­
matan turut diperkenalkan tahun ini, melibatkan 20 syarikat yang
menawarkan perkhidmatan logistik, pembersihan, penyelenggaraan kenderaan, teknologi maklumat dan
komunikasi (ICT), penyediaan latihan dan kemahiran jahitan serta busana. Dalam perkembangan lain,
kata Mustapa, kementerian telah bekerjasama dengan Perbadanan Pembangunan Multimedia (MDeC)
bagi mewujudkan jaringan pemasaran produk dan perkhidmatan SDSI seca­ra dalam talian.
Katanya, pada tahun ini kluster inap desa
terpilih untuk dipasarkan secara dalam talian
dan kaedah tersebut akan diperluaskan
kepada produk dan perkhidmatan SDSI lain
secara berperingkat. “MDeC sudah pun ada
rangkai­an di seluruh negara tetapi sempena
SDSI di negeri ini mereka turut mengadakan
kursus bagi peserta inap desa baharu. Ini
satu kaedah yang terbaik dan contoh kecil
bagaimana kita boleh tingkatkan perniagaan
menggunakan kaedah baharu,” katanya.

To create this list, UBS looked at the prices for a basket of 122 goods and services (these were items that a
European three-person household commonly buys/consumes in a month including food and clothing and
were weighted to reflect frequency of consumption), as well as rents in the area. Rents were determined using
three different types of apartments: Furnished two-room apartment, unfurnished three-room apartment, and
a newly built apartment; rent prices included utilities but not the use of a garage.

“DRIVING Transformation, POWERING Growth”
Systematic Aviation Services Sdn Bhd
The Boy Who Wanted to Fly
As a little boy, Ismail bin Asha’ari frequently visited
his father who worked at the RAF in Changi,
Singapore. It was here that he developed his lifelong dream - a dream that became an ambition as
he grew up - to fly planes! After finishing his studies
at the Royal Military College, he applied to join the
Air Force. Sadly, he failed his physical examination
- his eyesight had let him down. As a result of this
setback he decided to further his studies. Ismail
did very well and was able to rise up the corporate
ladder. He rose to the position of CEO in a large
Malaysian transportation company, but his entrepreneurial fire as well as his childhood dreams never faded.
Though he was unable to fly as a professional pilot, he joined the Royal Selangor Flying Club in order to fulfill
his dreams of flying. He was able to obtain a Private Pilot’s Licence and was finally able to fly. However though
his dream had been reached, his entrepreneurial spirit told him that there was more to achieve. And so at the
age of 44 he decided to start his own business in the aviation industry.
There were numerous hurdles in his way, he even had problems finding an office space at the Subang Airport.
He finally settled this problem when he obtained permission to convert a small toilet into an office. And thus
was the way his company first started out, in humble circumstances. With a team of 5, the company ventured
into aircraft maintenance services, initially doing work for the Royal Selangor Flying Club and other small jobs.
As with many other company first starting out, the company faced numerous challenges, especially cashflow
problems. Ismail had to resort to credit card loans to pay his employees. Determination and love for the business
gave Ismail the strength to survive the early years, and the company finally made its first breakthrough after 2
years in business when it was awarded the contract to provide aircraft maintenance services to the Department
of Civil Aviation.
With a stable income flow, the company was able to plan for its growth. In 2007, the company needed to raise a
Performance Bond of RM 315,000.00 for a large contract. Finding difficulty in talking to the commercial bankers,
Ismail approached SME Bank. And the rest is history. SME Bank was able to provide Ismail’s company with
the performance bond, and has been there ever since to support Ismail and his company. In 2011 the company
obtained a loan of RM15million to purchase a Bell 429 helicopter. In 2013 SME Bank gave the company
another loan of RM8 million for the purchase of a Bell 407, and in 2014, a further RM22 million for purchasing
new aircraft. The company was also able to call on the expert advisory assistance that SME Bank provides,
which was instrumental in helping the company build its solid foundations, and allow Ismail to fulfill dream and
ambitions in soaring fashion.
