Event Details

The last year has been an interesting one for Malaysia, and the next twelve months will still hold some surprises. To reduce the uncertainty facing decision-makers, it helps if leaders have a sense of political, economic, talent, and technology conditions that we can expect. Our session will explore situations within the country that will shape the business landscape. We will examine ongoing economic progress; the growing emphasis on sustainability; outlooks for different industries; political questions; talent availability; and technology trends creating new opportunities.

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