ICDM Post-Budget Breakfast Talk

Anil Kumar Puri & Prof Dr Veerinderjeet Singh

Coupled with the incentives to further catalyse the digital economy – specifically the RM1 billion in incentives to attract investments from Fortune 500 and global unicorn companies in high technologies, manufacturing and new economic sectors, bolstered by talent readiness initiatives to prepare the Malaysian workforce for the new economy, the Government’s holistic approach to lifting the overall economic landscape is commendable. Investing in the necessary platforms and infrastructure to strengthen socioeconomic well-being sets a clear precedent on how they intend to execute on the new Shared Prosperity Vision 2030 (SPV2030).”
Michele Kythe Lim, President/CEO of ICDM on Malaysia’s Budget 2020

Join us in reviewing the strategic measures, tax changes and policy directions of Budget 2020 and how these would have an overall impact on businesses and the Malaysian economy. Listen to the budget highlights and key takeaways from the recent announcement and get guidance from our keynote speaker and panelist on the implications for you and your company.
