during these challenging Times

Tuesday, 6 December 2022. 8:30am to 1:00pm (GMT +8, Kuala Lumpur)

The Malaysia National E&E Forum 2022 returns for another year.

The E&E Industry in Malaysia is doing really well; export for first 9 months to September 2022 was up 35% from a year ago, investments in 2021 was a record RM148 billion.

However, the industry is facing headwinds; slowing global demand, rising costs and geo-political developments with the CHIPS Act and Ukraine war.

The world and the E&E industry is faced with sustainability challenges in the 3 pillars: economic, environmental and social. How do we integrate sustainability in business and innovations? How do you address the areas of concern such as Climate Change, developing green practices, reducing carbon emissions in the E&E industry?
