In the course of the visit, NEM also managed to meet and engage with the Chief Minister of Penang, Chow Kon Yeow, together with one of his Deputies, Ramasamy Palanisamy. During the meet, the NEM delegation managed to give an explanation on the NEM blockchain, the available funds as well as the NEM charter.

“We see great potential in Penang, particularly in the supply chain use case, and we’re looking forward to partner up with the state government to have a NEM blockchain hub in the northern region,” according to NEM Southeast Asia Project Director, Lance Cheang.

As part of the next steps to be taken to further boost the adoption of Blockchain in Penang, there will be more NEM101 talks arranged in the future. Further NEM education opportunities in Penang will be provided to interested parties whenever requested.
