Penang Dialogue 2020 is going Virtual!


Is the COVID-19 pandemic the black swan event that finally forces many companies, and entire industries, to rethink and transform their global supply chain model and supplier ecosystems? How are the in-country supply chain ecosystems surviving this storm that everyone is still trying to navigate? How will Malaysia position itself for the future?


Find out by joining AMCHAM's annual signature event the Penang Dialogue 2020 on 26 October 2020 from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.


The program this year will be brought to you virtually in consideration of the current rising number of COVID-19 cases in the country.


The Penang Dialogue is the Chamber's signature program that brings together AMCHAM members with key stakeholders from industry, local government, and academia to discuss core themes related to doing business in Malaysia, emphasizing Malaysia's role in the global value chain.


AMCHAM is delighted to announce that both Y.A.B. Tuan Chow Kon Yeow, the Chief Minister of Penang, and H.E. Kamala Shirin Lakhdhir, U.S. Ambassador to Malaysia will be joining us again this year to deliver a keynote address and to engage with the industry.

PANEL #1 - Malaysia's Next Big Leap
In the past 30 years, Malaysia has successfully curtailed high poverty rates and reduced income inequalities but has fallen short of the Vision 2020 goal to attain high income status while ensuring that prosperity is shared. The COVID-19 pandemic and leadership changes has had a major economic impact on Malaysia’s economy and its potential. Previously the country played a seemingly small but significant part of Global Value Chains, disruptions and risk mitigation pose an uncertain future as it charts its recovery. What does Malaysia need to do to retain its integral role? This panel answers: How has significant world-changing-events changed business perspectives and managed risk? What lessons have been learnt from this, as we still navigate through this storm? Is Malaysia on course to move forward or are we falling behind?

PANEL #2 - Sustainable Supply Chains: Supporting the Ecosystems
Malaysia’s SME ecosystem is a mixed bag of companies that are technically capable, many meeting global standards, and others that are equally important but have yet to evolve into Industry 3.0 or 4.0. In today’s hyper vigilant age and with supply chains resilience more in focus, can Malaysia’s local ecosystem showcase its strength and resilience working in tandem with MNCs? This panel looks into how MNCs are evolving their supply chains, making them more resilient to disruptions, and how this affects the local ecosystems that are reliant on them.
