Road Engineering Association of Malaysia (REAM)

The Road Engineering Association of Malaysia (REAM) has its roots in the establishment of the Road Engineering Association of Asia and Australasia (REAAA) in 1973. At that time, REAAA formed a permanent secretariat in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. In 1993, recognizing the importance of facilitating technology transfer both locally and internationally, the Malaysian Chapter of REAAA was established.

In 1997, a significant development occurred with the renaming of the REAAA (Malaysian Chapter) to the Road Engineering Association of Malaysia (REAM). This transformation was undertaken to align with national aspirations and emphasize REAM's commitment to advancing road engineering practices and standards within Malaysia.

REAM is a prominent organization dedicated to advancing the field of road engineering within Malaysia. As a professional association, REAM plays a pivotal role in promoting collaboration, knowledge exchange, and the continuous improvement of road infrastructure standards in the country. Through initiatives such as conferences, workshops, and educational programs, REAM provides a platform for industry professionals, researchers, and policymakers to stay abreast of the latest developments, share expertise, and contribute to the sustainable growth of Malaysia's road network.
