Dato’ Sri Jessy Lai receiving the Queen Victoria Commemorative Medal by EBA

Receiving the Queen Victoria Commemorative Medal by the European Business Assembly (EBA) today was truly exhilarating. The medal is indeed one of the highest honours a businessperson could receive. I am both overwhelmed and humbled to know that the beliefs I hold dear are not just celebrated, but also rewarded.
Indeed, giving back has always been a care value of Mon Space. We care about the poor, the needy and the underserved both locally and internationally.
Locally, Mon Space has contributed to the development of Chinese education, building a school hall for SJK(C) Lukut, donating to YAYSH to help orphans, donating vehicles to St. John Ambulance, building schools in rural China, and even sending emergency relief team to Tianjin when the explosion happened.
This medal validates Mon Space as an organisation that truly cares for our community, and I couldn’t be more grateful for the privilege to be able to give. With pumped up spirits, I hereby promise to lead Mon Space into even more CSR and charitable endeavours, capitalising on our influence to make this world a better place.

拿督斯里赖彩云荣获欧洲商业协会(EBA)颁发“维多利亚纪念奖章”
今天是一个激昂的一天,我站在国际的舞台,接受世界最顶级的协会——欧洲商业协会(EBA)颁发“维多利亚纪念奖章”,这一刻,觉得自己多年来所坚持信念终于得到一个正向的回报。“心系群众,奉献大爱”是MONSPACE的经营理念之一,也是我始终坚持的目标,MONSPACE集团开创以来,除了专于经营盈利之外,也积极实行企业社会责任,关心本地乃至国际社会的贫穷、儿童与妇女课题。
例如MONSPACE集团为本地华教献力,为芦骨华小筹办多功能礼堂丶每年参与并捐款于YAYSH孤儿基金丶捐赠救伤车于圣约翰以帮助更多需要的人丶于中国偏远山区成立逾百间希望小学以让穷困学生有就机会受教育,并关注国际社会时事,及时伸出援手,例如捐赠并派遣特工队深入天津爆炸区慰问灾黎。
我始终坚信企业善尽社会责任,回馈社会,是企业永续发展的精髓,而“心系群众,奉献大爱”的经营理念,让我获得了表扬慈善精神的“维多利亚奖章”的荣誉。
能获得EBA颁发维多利亚奖章,足以证明MONSPACE对社会的爱心贡献已获国际认证,我也代表MONSPACE集团在此承诺,日后将带领集团要投入更多新血履行企业社会责任,发挥企业的号召力与影响力,将发展社会视为己任。
