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?

Date:    Monday, 16 July 2018
Time:    14:30 – 18:00 hrs
Venue:  DoubleTree by Hilton Kuala Lumpur
Price:    RM 300 for Members; RM 400 for non – members.
