KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia will become the green technology hub in the region, judging from the success of the previous five editions of the International Greentech and Eco Product Exhibition and Conference Malaysia held.

Minister of Energy, Green Technology and Water Datuk Seri Dr Maximus Ongkili said the response to the conference had been good, and since 2010, it had generated over RM6 billion in green business leads.

"This has spurred the growth of the green technology sector within Malaysia and further afield through cross-country promotion and dialogues that are crucial to the progress of this nascent sector," he said in a statement on Wednesday.

He also said the Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak will officially launch the 6th International Greentech and Eco Products Exhibition and Conference Malaysia (IGEM 2015), which will be held here from Sept 9-12.

The four-day event is set to attract 50,000 visitors and 400 exhibitors from over 20 countries.

To date, some 300 booths have been taken up by 72 exhibitors, out of which 125 booths in the form of pavilions will be occupied by leading green technology companies from Germany, Spain, the Netherlands, Taiwan, Japan

He said the speed limit was lowered from 80kph to ensure a smooth flow of traffic during the Hari Raya holidays.
