The 5th CFO Innovation Malaysia Forum aims to provide CFOs and other senior finance executives with strategic guidance on what to expect in this time of global uncertainties. The forum is designed as a platform to share the collective wisdom of Malaysia’s CFO community and the insights of subject matter experts around the below areas:

  • Challenges and opportunities arising from opportunities arising from global geopolitical changes amidst continuous shift in US policies, Britain’s exit from the European Union, Euro zone changes and China’s economic readjustment
  • Implications of AEC economic integration on finance and business leaders in Malaysia
  • What is to be expected from Malaysia Budget Y2018 and the impact of the new Companies Act 2016 (Act 777)?
  • The latest development on transfer pricing, and how it will affect financial management
  • Understanding how artificial intelligence (AI) and automation as a new class of digital disruptors is transforming how business gets done
  • Technological innovation on business models, operations and finance talent management
  • CFO’s strategic role transformation in the digital era
  • With Malaysia’s commitment to open trade and liberalization, the way forward to 2020 and beyond seems bright

    The bilateral commitments of boosting trade and Foreign Direct Investments (FDIs) with countries such as China, India, Saudi Arabia, and France, is expected to improve growth and development further, thus creating more jobs and improve income levels for all Malaysians. This is further strengthened by Malaysia’s involvement in various multilateral platforms, such as the “one belt one road " initiative, the Asean Economic Community (AEC), the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP), and the on-going talks to revive the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreement without the US.

    Closer to home with large infrastructure projects in the pipeline— such as the Pan Borneo Highway, the Pengerang refinery and petrochemical plant, mass rapid transport projects in Kuala Lumpur, and the East Coast rail link and high-speed rail line to Singapore — is expected to stimulate both public and private investments in Malaysia.

    The 5th CFO Innovation Malaysia Forum will provide CFOs, financial controllers, treasurers and other finance executives the opportunity to spend one day immersed in a productive environment with peers from large enterprises and multinationals, as well as business specialists and other experts.

    The event was held on 25thOctober 2017 at The Westin Kuala Lumpur
