Overwhelming Investor Interest For Invest Malaysia 2009
The Invest Malaysia 2009 (IM09) conference, which will be held on Tuesday, 30 June and Wednesday, 1 July 2009, promises to be its most successful yet with more than 600 delegates from 170 local and foreign institutions. Registration was closed early due to the overwhelming response from investors keen on gaining invaluable insight into Malaysia’s economy and capital market, straight from its key decision makers.
This positive response is a reflection of the strong interest among local and foreign investors in the attractive opportunities that the Malaysian capital market holds. This fifth edition of the Invest Malaysia conference series still tops the calendars of institutional investors as Malaysia’s most anticipated investor conference.
Organised by Bursa Malaysia with co-sponsors CIMB Investment Bank and the Capital Market Development Fund, the highlight of IM09 will be the keynote address by Dato’ Sri Najib Tun Razak, the Prime Minister of Malaysia, which also marks his first address to the investment community. The keynote speech will focus on this year’s theme, “Malaysia’s Growth Drivers”.
For the first time, the conference will also include a session by the Chief Ministers of Johor, Penang and Sabah, who will showcase the attractiveness of their respective states as key investment destinations.
Delegates will have the opportunity to attend all the plenary sessions which will discuss timely market issues and ideas that will shape the country’s future business landscape. This year’s sessions include a special address by Tan Sri Azman Mokhtar, Managing Director of Khazanah Nasional Berhad. Other sessions entitled “Malaysia: Vision, Execution & Consistency”, “Islamic Finance: Driver of Growth” and “Malaysia’s Growth Centres: Johor, Penang and Sabah” will feature stimulating discourse between renowned industry captains and market players, overseen by a panel of expert moderators.
