The MAA and the local advertising industry, Khoo said, are in need of assistance and suggestions to continue to build on and make both entities attractive to fresh and young talent.
“Moving forward, we’ll continue to engage our members through various activities and value added initiatives; continue to play a leadership role in issues concerning the industry and maintain closer collaboration with peer bodies and lobbying the authorities on behalf of members on various matters to bring about a healthier growth and development to the industry.
“We could also further explore areas like industry self-regulation structure; best practices; talents development, training and retention; profession fee structure; transparency and measurement.”
