KUCHING, June 7: Deputy Premier of Sarawak-cum-Minister for International Trade, Industry, and Investment (Mintred) Datuk Amar Awang Tengah Ali Hasan visited to Absen, a leading manufacturer of indoor and outdoor light-emitting diode (LED) display and screen panels, in Huizhou, China, on Tuesday (June 6).

According to a press release, Awang Tengah, who is also the Second Minister for Natural Resources and Urban Development was briefed on Absen and its products, which have a wide range of applications and use in large-sized displays, signages, advertisements, and so on.

“Absen was founded in 2001, listed in 2014, and has presence all over the world such as in Japan, Russia, Germany, USA, Hong Kong, etc,” the press release read.

It went on to add that Awang Tengah was impressed by the products and welcomed Absen to consider Sarawak as an overseas expansion location for their products as Sarawak is strategically located in the region and provides easy access to Asian markets.
