18th Malaysian Banking Summit
The 18th Malaysian Banking Summit
“Moving Forward in a New Financial Landscape”
19th & 20th June 2014 | Intercontinental Kuala Lumpur
Malaysia’s growth and development is supported and driven by a sound banking system. The Malaysian economy is projected to show strong growth of between 5%-5.5% in 2014. Underpinning this economic trajectory is a resilient banking and financial landscape. A strong banking system provides continued access for financing the private sector to drive economic growth. Malaysia now has a liberalised financial system. The new Financial Services Act 2013 and Islamic Financial Services Act 2013 have been enacted and will help strengthen and reshape Malaysian banks. Bank Negara Malaysia continues to provide strong oversight over the Banking and Finance sector.
Malaysia’s Banking and Financial Services sector continues to move forward to face future challenges and capitalise on new opportunities arising from a recovery economy in tandem with its strategic role as a key driver and catalyst for economic growth and continued prosperity. The Banking and Financial sector is poised to become more competitive, dynamic, inclusive, integrated and diversified and able to meet the needs of the nation and commerce and industry. The overall financial landscape will provide an expanded and integrated industry supporting the economy and many other industries as banking is the life blood of business.
The 18th Malaysian Banking Summit will address key issues of concern to the Banking and Financial sector. It will bring together key leaders of the Banking sector, leading businessmen, analysts, corporate managers and government officials to discuss the future challenges and the changing role of Banks in Malaysia. The Summit will provide timely updates, sharing of knowledge and best practices, and thought provoking discussions to enhance delivery of banking services and upgrade the performance of banks in the country. The Summit will enable participants to strategise and take appropriate actions to make banks more competitive and resilient and meet the needs of commerce and industry as well as financial inclusion for inclusive development. The Summit will also focus on banking operational excellence, wealth management, talent development and banking technology.
