Fireside Chat with Dato’ Sri Norazman Ayob, Deputy Secretary-General of MITI, Malaysia

The Ministry of International Trade and Industry (MITI) has been refining and advancing Malaysia’s investment policy to attract high-quality foreign direct investment (FDI) into the country and boost Malaysia’s economic trajectory. On 4 May, AmCham Singapore held a webinar titled ‘Fireside Chat with Dato’ Sri Norazman Ayob, Deputy Secretary-General of MITI, Malaysia’ to learn about Malaysia’s investment landscape and potential trade opportunities for companies in Asia-Pacific through Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) and Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP).

AMCHAM’s CEO Siobhan Das was invited to provide the opening remarks and give Malaysia’s perspective on the business landscape as of late as well as to what are the factors involved in driving high-quality FDI into the country.

Dato’ Sri Norazman went into detail on the nature of RCEP, the effects and benefits for businesses, and the opportunities they bring. He also talked about the current stage Malaysia is at with the CPTPP. He then proceeded to join the panel discussion along with Muhammad Azmi Zulkifli, Chief Executive Officer at InvestKL Corporation, moderated by Fatimah Alsagoff, Director of Public Affairs at UPS Asia Pacific.

Special thanks to AmCham Singapore for inviting us to be part of this event. We look forward to more of these collaborations in the future.
