Malaysia in 2018 with Datuk Seri Johari Abdul Ghani, Finance Minister II

AMCHAM’s first major event of 2018 took place on Monday 05 February as we welcomed Datuk Seri Haji Johari Abdul Ghani, Minister of Finance II, to meet with over 60 of our members at the Ritz Carlton Hotel in a closed-door Q+A session with our members.

After a short private meeting with AMCHAM Board Members and key corporate sponsors, the Minister spoke freely and candidly on a wide range of topics including Malaysia’s economic trajectory over 2018, the strengthening of the Ringgit, challenges involved in taxing the digital economy, and the government’s future direction on healthcare and foreign labor provisions.

The session proved informative and, at times, humorous for our attendees. AMCHAM is delighted to have this type of top-level engagement from the Ministry and looks forward to collaborating on a series of contemporary issues over the coming year.

Our thanks to Datuk Seri Haji Johari Abdul Ghani and his team for taking the time to attend this important dialogue event.
