During this (extended) period of the Movement Control Order, AMCHAM will be bringing updates on the latest COVID-19 developments, which includes the efforts of Government and initiatives from other bodies and organizations.
AMCHAM wishes all its Muslim members a happy and safe fasting month. These are trying times with an unwanted epidemic ruining much of the festive feel, but better to be safe than sorry. Hopefully a better and brighter future is looming around the horizon.

|MEMBERS' BRIEFING WEBINAR|
On 23 April, 2020, AMCHAM held its first Members’ Briefing in a virtual manner. Attendance was high, exceeding 60, and lively. The briefing began with AMCHAM CEO Siobhan Das updating members on what’s been going on at AMCHAM lately. Since the Movement Control Order (MCO) was implemented, shifting to virtual platforms became a requirement. The times must be met with new skills and methods.
WHEN the government imposed the Movement Control Order (MCO) on March 18, its objective was clear — to contain the spread of Covid-19. The decision was made on the basis that human lives are more important than the short-term economic impact. Today, most non-essential manufacturing activities and business operations in the country remain shut and we do not need experts to tell us how damaging this will be to businesses and the economy.
Over 70 doctors and healthcare professionals across over 40 specialties are live on a teleconsultation platform for the benefit of Sunway Medical Centre patients. Local and overseas patients can consult their doctors, clinical psychologists, speech therapists, audiologists, rehabilitation team (podiatrist, physiotherapists and occupational therapists) and dietitians without the need to be physically present, with an appointment made at least one working day before.
|COVID-19: Now. Next. Beyond.|
The COVID-19 pandemic has brought about significant disruption and uncertainty to businesses and economies globally. In these trying times, businesses will inevitably focus almost exclusively on immediate concerns. Furthermore, as COVID-19 continues to create uncertainty, fear and genuine concern for many businesses, the need for more strategic, purposeful and longer-term responses has also been a matter of great importance.

The outbreak of Covid-19 has forced organizations into perhaps the most significant social experiment of the future of work in action, with work from home and social distancing policies radically changing the way we work and interact. But the impact on work is far more profound than just changing where people work; it is also fundamentally altering what work is performed and how we perform it.
The unfolding, global COVID-19 pandemic is a human crisis of historic scale and complexity. It is straining health care systems, government fiscal capacity, and the ability of many organizations to cope with the changes wrought by the virus and the response to it. The level of uncertainty for most leaders is unprecedented, and most of our frameworks for planning and problem solving are unable to manage the geographic variability, uncertainty, and the exponential change brought by the COVID-19 crisis.
