ZAGREB, February 23, 2019 - Croatian innovators and entrepreneurs have won 15 awards at the Malaysia Technology Expo 2019 in Kuala Lumpur - the Best of the Best Award, four golds, three silvers and seven special awards.

The 18th International Expo on Inventions and Innovations featured 435 innovations from Malaysia and ten Southeast Asian and European countries, the Zagreb Inventors Association said in press release on Saturday, adding that numerous contacts were made to promote innovative Croatian products on the Malaysian market.

Croatia's exhibitors, all from Zagreb, won 15 awards for ten innovations and new products. For the first time, the expo had a partner country, Croatia, owing to its tenth participation in the event and the 25th anniversary of Malaysian-Croatian diplomatic relations.

With the support of the Croatian Embassy to Malaysia and in cooperation with the Croatian Inventors Network (SHI) and the Croatian Chamber of Commerce, the organisers of the expo organised a business conference which was attended by Malaysia's top political officials and business community.

A business consultant network for cooperation between Croatia and ASEAN countries was formed on that occasion, while SHI and the Transformational Innovative Maverick company signed an agreement on cooperation in the commercialisation of Croatian inventions and new products.

Speaking at the conference, Croatian Ambassador Krešo Glavač invited the Malaysian business community to cooperate in the market application of Croatian inventors' new achievements.

The Croatian delegation presented the 44th International Invention Show which Zagreb will host in November. Croatia's biggest innovation expo is expected to attract many inventors from Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, Iran, Taiwan, Ukraine and China, the press release said.
