About SOBA

The Star Outstanding Business Awards (SOBA) is all about recognising the best in Malaysian businesses. We return for the 9th year to honour local non-public listed organisations that have led the way with excellent business principles, ethics and practices. SOBA winners are testaments of high achievement and serve as a benchmark for others to emulate.
