New Straits Times - - Sport -

ONLY RM10 mil­lion to go as Pru­den­tial As­sur­ance Malaysia Ber­had (PAMB) is the lat­est to spon­sor the Kuala Lumpur Sea Games and Para Asean Games.

Clas­si­fied as a sil­ver spon­sor part­ner, for spon­sor­ship of be­tween RM1mil-RM3mil, Pru­den­tial comes in as Of­fi­cial In­sur­ance Part­ner for the Games and is to pro­vide in­sur­ance cov­er­age for all 13,000 vol­un­teers.

“The to­tal amount of spon­sor­ship has al­most reached RM70mil and our target is RM80mil.

“We are 87 per cent from said target and I feel good be­cause ob­vi­ously reach­ing al­most 90 per cent in this eco­nomic con­di­tion is chal­leng­ing,” said Sports Min­is­ter Khairy Ja­malud­din in Pu­tra­jaya yes­ter­day.

The deal was inked by Malaysian Or­gan­is­ing Com­mit­tee (MASOC) KL2017 CEO Datuk Seri Zolk­ples Em­bong and PAMB chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer Gan Leong Hin.

Pru­den­tial is one of Asia’s lead­ing life in­sur­ers and one of the re­gion’s largest as­set man­age­ment com­pa­nies.

KL2017 will be held on Aug 1931 for Sea Games and the Para Asean Games on Sept 17-23. Farah Azharie
