Galvanising Malaysia in the Age of Disruption
Two years on from the worst of Covid-19, and it seems as if the Malaysian economy has yet to shake off its lethargy. External factors play a part; the war in Europe, US-China rivalry; climate change, and China’s economic slowdown have broken down supply chains, pushed up the cost of living, and necessitated interest rate increases, all at a time when businesses are striving to recover.
While statistics point to a rosier outlook for the country, economic revival has been uneven. Small and medium businesses struggle to achieve growth amid higher costs of borrowing; FDIs still find other shores more stable and attractive; and technology sputters at implementation in many sectors.
On the human side of the equation, youth unemployment and graduate underemployment remain high; households are crushed by the high cost of living as inflation far outpaces wage growth, and workers are unprepared for the digital age. Amid the rapid changes brought about by AI and climate change, and global uncertainties caused by regional and global conflicts, these issues, if unresolved, can impede our economic progress.
What are the priorities that are needed to galvanise the Malaysian economy and move up the value chain? This will be the focus of the Perdana Leadership Foundation CEO Forum 2023 “Wake Up, Malaysia! Galvanising Malaysia in the Age of Disruption” where over 30 business and thought leaders will convene to discuss subjects topical to the Malaysian economy in engaging plenary and concurrent sessions. Be part of the dialogue and register today. Seats are available from only RM215 per person.
