Malaysia: MH17


The challenge

The Malaysian government, just like the Dutch government, was shocked by the tragic case of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17. A civil airliner with many Dutch and Malaysian nationals on board crashed in Ukrainian territory. This required very careful handling by the Malaysian authorities.

IvCB’s approach

In a commission by the Malaysian government, IvCB mapped out the stakeholders in the Netherlands in detail. Social and political developments were monitored in real time and the discussion that took place in the Netherlands was clarified. The visit to the Netherlands by the Malaysian Minister of Transport during an official meeting was prepared in minute detail.

The result for the client

The work carried out by IvCB ensured that the Malaysian government had all the relevant information available as soon as possible. Clarification meant that sensitive matters could be gone into thoroughly and that they could be reacted to and acted upon appropriately.
