What does President Biden Mean for Malaysia?

AMCHAM’s CEO, Siobhan Das was invited to be one of the presenters at the inaugural KSInsights titled “What Does President Biden Mean for Malaysia?” held last night, January 27, 2021. Alongside her, on the panel, was Dr. Heng Pek Koon, Assistant Professor, School of International Service, American University, Dr. Kuik Cheng-Chwee, Head, Centre for Asian Studies (iKAS), Institute of Malaysian and International Studies (IKMAS), National University of Malaysia (UKM), and Elina Noor, Director (Political-Security Affairs), Asia Society Policy Institute (ASPI) and the session was moderated by Zaim Mohzani, Director (External Relations), KSI Strategic Institute for Asia Pacific (KSI).

Each panelist provided their comments on the much talked about topic at the moment – what it means for Asia under the Biden administration? How should we expect Biden’s Southeast Asia policy to look like? What does Malaysia want under the Biden administration? What areas of opportunities are there for the business community? It was an interesting conversation between the panelists as we got to hear from the academic perspective as well as the business perspective.

Special thanks to KSI Strategic Institute for Asia Pacific for inviting our CEO to be on the panel.
