Dear MDBC members,
Organized by our colleagues from the Malaysian Danish Business Council (MDaBC) and in collaboration with fellow European chambers, we invite you to join the Parliamentary Briefing by Vriens & Partners on 26 April.
With the theme, “Political Machinations, Elections, and Lingering Uncertainty: What to Expect for 2022 and Beyond“, this edition will address GE15.
A series of by – elections has brought Malaysia no closer to the answer to the guessing game of when will the general election be held. What are the indicators for GE15, as well as what will this mean for the country and the economy in the long run? Is Malaysia returning back to an age of strong coalitions, or towards a future of dynamism, with smaller parties playing an important role?
