Aftermath of the Malaysian Elections

Friday April 12, 2019 8:45 AM  About 12 months ago

On 13 June 2019, Asia Group Advisors hosted an information session for friends and partners. We focused on the aftermath of the Malaysian elections and the implications for business, regulation and engagement in Mahathir’s Malaysia.

Senior Advisor Mohamed Nawab Bin Mohamed Osman commented on the possibility of Dr Mahathir attempting to balance himself between the US and China, by keeping both powers equidistant. Additionally, Dr Mahathir will try to set up the best scenario for his successors within two years. Our Malaysia Analyst Edika Amin commented on the revival of national projects last seen when Dr Mahathir was PM of Malaysia in the 1990s.

Moving forward, Director Romain Caillaud predicted it will be an interesting time for regulation and engagement as the new regime attempts to flatten GST while sourcing revenue from other sources, including tourism and industry.
