The forum will critically consider the major features of Malaysia’s economy. Dr Lafaye’s recent book offers an original French Regulation School perspective for understanding its development and nature. The panellists will debate the role of the state, institutions and large corporations, including government-linked companies. Particular attention will also be given to evolving relations with China and the rest of the world, especially with the Trump presidency and Brexit. The changing nature of social, including ethnic and cultural relations as well as economic inequalities will also be considered in anticipation of the forthcoming 14th Malaysian general elections.

We hope to welcome you and your guests to the conference!
