The bi-annual Worldchefs Congress will attract around 1,000 delegates to the Malaysian capital and is expected to generate £2.1m for the local economy.

Malaysia was the only country in Asia to submit a bid, having outbid Hong Kong to become the continent’s representative in an earlier round.

The congress is held to discuss developments in the culinary sector. Delegates also compete in the Worldchefs Global Chefs Challenge.

The event will also include a trade show showcasing the latest products in the global food and beverage industry.

The congress is organised by the World Association of Chefs’ Societies and it will be the second time in the event’s 86-year history that it has taken place in South-East Asia.

The World Association of Chefs’ Societies is a global body of 100 chefs associations, representing more than 10 million professional chefs worldwide.

The 2016 Congress will be held in Athens, Greece.
