About Afta

The Asian Flexible Packaging Conference, Exhibition and Awards (AFTA) 2014 announces its relocation to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, on 10-11 November. 

Malaysia’s print industry is amongst the top five largest in the manufacturing sector in the country. There are 3,162 print companies registered with the Ministry of Home Affairs, many of which are based in Kuala Lumpur - the base of this year’s AFTA event. Originally planned for Bangkok, Thailand, AFTA’s management has decided to move the event to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, in light of current political instabilities. Conference locations have included Asian hotspots Penang, Phuket, Jakarta, Singapore, Manila and Pattaya.

In 2014, the World Bank Report ranked Malaysia as the sixth most business-friendly country in the world. This marks the first time the Southeast Asian country has managed to break into the top ten ranking. The print industry is a significant contributor to its economy, with an output value of over USD 3 billion. According to the Malaysian Investment Development Authority (MIDA), the highest investments recorded for 2012 were for the printing and publishing industry, at RM490.3 million. The print packaging market in particular has been accelerating in recent years.
