Ir. Haji Arshad Haji Marsidi’s growth plan for MPC involved expansions into different industries, one of which was hospitality. Another is, entrepreneurship and small business development. Seeing the growth potential of the hospitality industry, Ir. Haji Arshad fought to get MPC deeply involved. Also, in conjunction with the collaboration between MARA and MPC, MPC developed a series of programmes suitable for the creation and development of Bumiputra entrepreneurs. His keen foresight led to the construction of a hotel owned by the organisation. The hotel, named Hotel Dayang, was located next to MPC’s headquarters and served as a hands-on training ground for hospitality-related trainings. Here, MPC trained SPM-leavers and students who needed a diploma, teaching them how to deliver excellent service in hospitality. These programmes were also popular with international students from other developing countries.
