Jul 08, 2014
Kuala Lumpur, Tuesday July 8th, 2014 – Shell Malaysia hosted approximately 300 representatives from a panel of 170 Suppliers at the Annual Supplier Pinnacle 2014 at Wisma Shell in Cyberjaya recently.
Lily Rozita ; Managing Counsel for Downstream, Aldred Lee ; GST Project Manager and Andrew Ooi ; Cluster HSSE Manager were among the speakers from Shell Malaysia at the one day engagement.
The Shell Annual Supplier Pinnacle was part of Shell Malaysia efforts to ensure that suppliers understand Shell’s business principles in conducting business, such as Shell General Principles of Business (SGBP), Health Safety Security Environment (HSSE), Life Saving Rules (LSR) and implementation of government’s new tax policies Goods and Services Tax (GST).
Shell Malaysia aspires to working closely with its current pool of approximately 800 suppliers to embed the new processes and documentation to reign in the implementation of GST in 2015.
Essentially, this year Supplier Pinnacle was converging towards the building block of a robust partnership with Suppliers to increase the level of GST awareness and understanding which includes Suppliers’ GST registration, reformatting documentation and addressing several potential general misconceptions about GST impact and application.
“The importance of a clear understanding on the ways of working with Shell and advanced planning & preparations with our Suppliers to prepare for the GST implementation in 2015 will bring about great synergies and alignment to ensure minimal disruption to how we conduct business with our suppliers and our customers.” said CP Lee, Shell Malaysia Senior Procurement Manager.
“This engagement is good and I applaud Shell for being proactive in keeping suppliers abreast of the GST implementation. Together as partners, we are well-informed on how, when and where to register our company for GST. The in-depth sharing on the overall GST principles and impact on Shell, suppliers and the end customers helps me appreciate the implementation of GST in Malaysia.” said Sharon Koh, Marketing Director, KB Colour Image Sdn Bhd.
“I can confidently say that Shell and my company are both on par in terms of our advanced journey & preparation towards the GST implementation in Malaysia where the kick off preparations were initiated sometime early last year” said Venessa Rajagopal, Head of Corporate & MNC Sales, Enterprise Solutions, Maxis Berhad.
Year on year, Shell re-energizes the supplier and reiterates the importance of operating a business in the highest Safety standards, ethically and in compliance with all laws, rules & regulations.
“I value Shell as one of our business partners. The videos remind us of how to conduct our business in a safe environment. I love the Anti-Bribery and Corruption sharing by Shell’s Legal Counsel, Lily. I am impressed with Shell’s practices”, said CJ Koh, Managing Director of General Labels & Labelling.
Shell has been in Malaysia for over 120 years and has grown to become one of the Malaysia’s largest corporations. Our success has been firmly built on continual learning, helping our people and partners reach their potential while instilling a mindset that seeks to innovate and challenge convention. As Malaysia enters the next phase of development, it is critical that corporations here create the right environment that drives leadership and innovation to remain competitive for the all parties including the suppliers who are also our partners.
