The ripple effects of the current political and socio-economic changes regionally and globally demonstrates that countries and economies are more interconnected than ever before. In the context of Malaysia, post GE 14 and with the commitment for a New Malaysia, the Federal Government is faced with the remit of addressing issues of the past, the realities of the current which will shape the future. The Ministry of Economic Affairs (MEA hereafter), a new Ministry established by the new Federal Government has a remit larger than the previously known Economic Planning Unit (EPU). Several new agencies and responsibilities have been added to this Ministry.

The resultant effect of this is that Malaysia and its policymakers, need to embrace a new kind of thinking that would enable them to develop, implement, as well as measure the success of its policies. A model and framework that has clear accountabilities and one that is driven on the concept of value for money.

Some of the pertinent questions that require addressing are --- How must government owned entities be transformed and made more accountable? How can we create value for money private sector environment? What are the leadership styles needed for these times? What is the ecosystem required to boost entrepreneurship and innovation to take root in not just large businesses but also SMEs? Are public officials equipped with the skills, processes and systems to face an interconnected world?

In a world where one nation state and their domestic policies affect other nations, how does the government intend to position Malaysia vis-à-vis its regional and global counterparts? In a scenario where leading and great power rivalries is burgeoning, how will smaller economies influence in their neighbours in policies and beyond?

This Forum will discuss macro as well as micro economic factors that will affect Malaysia, its private sector as well as its institutions, domestically and globally.
