[WEBCAST] Executive Briefing | An Update From Malaysia With Andrew Goledzinowski AM, High Commissioner to MalaysiaVIEW EVENT DETAILS
How has Malaysia managed the COVID-19 pandemic while undergoing a dramatic change of government?
What will be the lasting social, political, and economic effects of the virus and how will it impact the country’s growing regional role?
Asia Society Australia warmly invites you to a private briefing with Andrew Goledzinowski AM, Australian High Commissioner to Malaysia. While Malaysia’s initial response to the outbreak was complicated by sudden political instability, the country has since closed its borders, shut down non-essential businesses and deployed armed forces to enforce a partial lockdown. These measures have successfully slowed the spread of the disease, but they have exacerbated socioeconomic disparities, increased unemployment, and fuelled distrust in the government.
Join us as we discuss how Malaysia has reacted to COVID-19 and how the virus and the resulting political and social instability will impact the country’s economy and business sector now and into the future.
Date: Thursday 9 July 2020
Time: 3 - 3:45 a.m.
