Dear Members and Friends

I don't need to tell you that there are always lots of events in Singapore. But even by this town's standards, last week was full-on and then some! What were your thoughts on the ASEAN Summits? The key messages for me are that global geo-political tensions will continue for some time because western powers are adjusting to the fact that global economic power has moved east. That means our region which makes understanding and navigating ASEAN better vital for your businesses' continued success.

A key and founding member of ASEAN is Malaysia. The Pakatan Harapan government has been in power for six months since its historic electoral victory. What are the implications for businesses and what potential further changes can be expected?

On 27 Nov member company Control Risks' senior analysts for Malaysia will give an update on the political situation and on the policies of the ruling coalition. They will also talk about how companies operating in Malaysia can best prepare for anticipated policy and regulatory changes as well as how to manage complex stakeholder relations. Register now as seats are limited.

Have a great week ahead and, remember, THINK ASEAN!

Warmest regards
Victor Mills
Chief Executive
