Event Details

Malaysia has seen economic success from its integration into regional and global supply chains, particularly in sectors such as electronics, energy, logistics and agribusiness. Now global supply chains are evolving, with forces from the US-China trade war to the covid-19 pandemic changing sourcing decisions. These changes pose both opportunities and threats to business in Malaysia. On the domestic front, the ongoing political drama in Malaysia risks undermining the attractiveness of a market that could be a big beneficiary from the trade war.

At this critical and timely session we debate some of the key challenges facing Malaysian businesses and discuss Malaysia's role in the new world economy. Please join us for a discussion on these themes with our Lead Analyst for Global Trade, and Malaysian citizen, Nick Marro, to unpack what companies in Malaysia should be thinking about as they plan their strategies for 2021.

Please note that this event is limited to senior-level executives and per invitation only. If you are not an existing member of The Economist Corporate Network, but would like to learn how you can attend our events, please send an email to ecn_sea@economist.com.
