“提升競爭力.造船業須採現代化技術”

(砂拉越.詩巫)馬來西亞海事工業公會會長丹斯里拿督斯里阿末蘭里表示,要提升大馬造船業的競爭能力,業者必須採用現代化的造船技術,並擬定造船作業的統一標准。

阿末蘭里今早在金地酒店舉行的“詩巫造船座談會”致開幕詞時表示,為了提升與鄰國如越南、印尼和菲律賓的競爭,大馬的造船業需要現代化的造船技術。

“在缺乏足夠的技術人才下,大馬造船業無法再繼續依賴廉價的勞工市場為競爭條件。我們有必要采用現代化的造船技術,如CNC切工機、3D設計技術,以便可以提高生產效率及節省所需的資源。”

阿末蘭里補充,大馬在造船業方面也迫切需要統一的作業標准,以便可以和造船業的引領國日本及韓國競爭。

“為了減低對政府的依賴,馬來西亞海事工業公會需要各成員配合,以便現代化技術及統一作業標准的建議,可以全面在大馬造船業有效實行。”

阿末蘭里指出,今年3月23日舉辦的第一屆國家海事工業峰會中就列明大馬造船業面對的挑戰,包括有限的本地市場、技術人員的短缺、高區域性的競爭、財務規劃、宣傳的不足及研發工作的缺乏。馬來西亞海事工業公正積極構思未來的發展藍圖,以帶領大馬海事工業繼續成長。

他表示,造船業者必須擬定相關措施以面對全球的經濟危機,并且通過在技術上的投資,加強自身在國際市場的競爭能力。
