SHAH ALAM: The Selangor state government through Invest Selangor Berhad (Invest Selangor) is targeting 15,000 visitors to the four-day Selangor International Expo (SIE) 2017 starting today at the Setia City Convention Centre (SCCC) here.

Chairman of the Selangor Permanent Committee on Investment, Industrialisation and Trade, Small and Medium-Scale Industries and Transport Datuk Teng Chang Khim said the state government was optimistic the target would be achieved after a recent trade exhibition received encouraging response from local and foreign investors.

He said this in his speech at the opening of the annual trade exhibition at the SCCC here by the Raja Muda of Selangor Tengku Amir Shah Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah.
