About the Webinar
Malaysia’s business community has been through a period of major change since 2018. Two changes of federal government, new administrations in many Malaysian states, major taxation reform, and now the COVID-19 pandemic – these are just a few of the issues confronting the 900,000 businesses trading in the country today, as well as the more than 100 different business associations that represent them.
In addition, major changes in demographics, gender, digital access and public accountability are also emerging as important issues.
How are chambers of commerce, trade associations and professional bodies adapting to these challenges, and what is the likely future for such organisations? What have they learnt from the Pakatan Harapan administration, and what issues are emerging with the new Perikatan Nasional government?
This presentation will be of interest to association office-bearers and members; government administrators and policymakers who work with business groups; and the general business community.
