The Malaysian Economy Faces New Headwinds

Covid-19. Lockdowns in China. War in Europe. Supply Chain Disruptions. Inflation. Labour Shortage. Political Uncertainty.

There has been no end to the onslaught of challenges faced by businesses in Malaysia. Just as companies thought the worst was over with the lifting of Covid-19 restrictions, new troubles have arisen, including the war in Europe and its human and economic costs, global inflation, Covid lockdowns in China, supply chain disruptions, and political uncertainty in Malaysia. The IMF stated in April that global growth is projected to slow from an estimated 6.1% in 2021 to 3.6% in 2022.

It is thus timely to have these issues put into perspective. At the Perdana Leadership Foundation CEO Forum 2022, join in on the sessions with CEOs and industry experts to discuss the impact of the various global and domestic factors and the resulting trends that are reshaping the Malaysian economy, as well as the policy responses of the Malaysian government.

At the close of the event, discover what a political veteran and the country’s longest-serving (and twice-elected) Prime Minister has to say about the future for Malaysia. All these at the ninth edition of the PLF CEO Forum 2022.

This year, the Forum is back in November 2022 as an in-person event, offering participants plenty of networking opportunities in between sessions within the stately halls of the Berjaya Times Square Convention Centre.

Don’t miss out. Get your seat today. Only RM415 per person if you register by 15th October 2022. Groups of 3 or more from the same organisation attend for only RM330 per person if you register by 15th October 2022. Register today through our registration page.
