TRANSFORMING MALAYSIA: CHALLENGES TO BECOMING A HIGH-INCOME NATION
Malaysia aspires to become a fully-developed, high income nation by 2020, driven primarily by high-value knowledge-based industries and services. To attain this goal, the government has launched the Government Transformation Plan and the Economic Transformation Plan as well as unveiled the New Economic Model. Now, more than six months down the road, what are the achievements of the plans and the new challenges faced on the road to transformation?
This key Forum aims to highlight the concerns of Malaysian businesses and the general public on Malaysia’s journey of change. More than twenty-five Malaysian CEOs and industry experts will give their opinions on a wide range of issues connected to the transformation: the FDI, cost of living, education, public governance, the content industry and domestic investment, among others, in an event that promises lively interactions and new insights. The event features a special session with PEMANDU CEO, YB Dato’ Sri Idris Jala, on the milestones and achievements of the transformation initiatives and a closing keynote address on Malaysian politics by none other than the fourth Prime Minister of Malaysia, YABhg Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad.
If you hunger for meaningful dialogue, frank discussions and unique perspectives, as well as the chance to exchange views and ideas with experienced members of the country’s corporate sector, the Perdana Leadership Foundation CEO Forum 2011 is an event not to be missed.
