Big Dataworks recently attended British Malaysian Chambers Commerce Focus Talk on Raising Business Confidence with Dr Muhammed Abdul Khalid, Economic Advisor to the Malaysian Prime Minister on 21st February at the Intercontinental Hotel, Kuala Lumpur.
In his speech, Dr Muhammed spoke of the short term challenges currently looked into by the Government. This includes high cost of living amidst low purchasing power, job growth and the lack of coordinated messaging across the public sector. He emphasized that the people's well-being is of the Government's ultimate concern, and through progressive tax reforms and thoughtful policy implementation, the sustainable growth of businesses can lead to the nation's economic and social betterment.
The event which was exclusive for BMCC members saw over 30 attendees present, taking part in an engaging Q&A session with Dr. Muhammed and a networking lunch thereafter. Overall, Dr Muhammed urged attendees to remain positive towards our business outlook and that the Government; in the spirit of getting things right, is not seeking to rush policy and answers to stakeholders.
Concluding his speech, he said “We hope, and we are very positive in the destination we’re heading towards. Maybe not as fast as we’d want, but we’ll get there.”
