Dear members and friends,
Pakatan Harapan's economic plans are falling into place. Now with the SST successfully re-implemented, the next task of Malaysia's newly appointed government will prove to be its biggest challenge yet : To table its inaugural 2019 Budget that maintains fiscal discipline in staying on course towards reducing national deficits whilst ensuring comfort and liveability of the rakyat.
Economists and financial analysts alike have begun laying predictions and their expectations of what Budget 2019, due to be tabled on 2nd November, would need to consist of. This includes initiatives to incentivize automation, modernization and Industry 4.0, along with review on cash aid and subsidies. With this blueprint set to focus on areas of affordable housing, transportation, tourism, e-commerce and renewable energy, Budget 2019 is certainly destined to impact our businesses and livelihoods towards a new horizon of a nation reborn.
Join us for this event as we hold our first ever half-day Conference, bringing in a line-up of distinguished speakers from both public and private sectors.
