MDBC / EUMCCI: ICW EU Malaysia Trade & Investment Forum 2018

June 8 @ 9:30 am - 2:00 pm

Dear MDBC members,


We thank you for your interest (and registration) for this event.  Regrettably, the guest of honor, YB Lim Guan Eng (Malaysian Minister of Finance) has been called away for an urgent meeting with the Advisory Council at the same time as the event.  As this is the case, we would like to inform you that the EU – Malaysia Trade & Investment Forum, scheduled for Friday, 8 June 2018 is now being postponed.

We are currently waiting for advice from the Minister’s office with a new date for the event to be re – scheduled within the next few weeks.  A notice will be sent to those who have already registered for this event as well as a confirmation on the new date once it has been received.  The update will also be posted here on the website.

We regret the inconvenience caused and look forward to your attendance at the re – scheduled event.

Thank you for your understanding and continued support.

MDBC Secretariat


The Future of Malaysia’s Competitiveness, Malaysia’s Role in ASEAN Economic Integration and in Enhancing ASEAN – EU Economic Relations.

The rhetoric is clear: the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) and enhanced ASEAN – EU economic relations are good for business.  How can Malaysia ensure it benefits from both the AEC and deepening ASEAN – EU economic relationship?

On the other hand, ASEAN – EU economic relations seem to be crowded out by other global developments such as the completion of the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for the Trans Pacific Partnership (CPTPP), and the intense negotiations to conclude the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP).

So how can Malaysia and the EU – Malaysian business community specifically, benefit from and contribute to, enhancing and deepening this relationship, even as ASEAN works to deepen its regional economic integration?

Venue:  DoubleTree by Hilton Kuala Lumpur
