Members’ Briefing (2 June 2021)

On 2 June, AMCHAM held its Members’ Briefing, fully virtual during this period of the Full Movement Control Order (FMCO 3.0). Once again, Mr. Michael Newbill, Deputy Chief of Mission from the U.S. Embassy of Kuala Lumpur provided the latest updates from the U.S. side on the state of the COVID-19 pandemic, current vaccination status as well as travel restrictions. Siobhan Das, Chief Executive Officer of AMCHAM, gave an update on what’s been going on in the last few days as the lockdown in Malaysia was strengthened, the government engagements that took place, members’ contributions and other ongoing initiatives at AMCHAM.

We were also delighted to have Mr. Azrul Mohd Khalib, Chief Executive Officer of Galen Centre once again to provide members updates on the latest developments of the COVID-19 vaccinations in Malaysia and what can be expected in the coming months as well as the challenges to increasing the vaccination rates.

Special thanks to our guests for providing the updates and taking questions from our members. These Members’ Briefings are held on the first Wednesday of each month. Look forward to the next Members’ Briefing on July 7th
