The Praxis Economic Seminar is an annually held marquee event that converts industry knowledge and thoughts into action. This year, the seminar featured a mix of guests and speakers. With a fitting tagline; #GameChangers2019, the objective of the seminar was to keep local businesses technology savvy and aware of the key issues that lie ahead. A review of the current landscape sought to bridge knowledge gaps and provide elaborate perspectives on how to plan ahead for the future.
MIGHT’s Senior Vice President, Rushdi Abdul Rahim, was a panellist at the seminar. He was invited by the Institute of Strategic and International Studies Malaysia (ISIS) to generate thought provoking discussions on ‘Raising the Game of Malaysian Manufacturing and Services with New Enabling Technologies’. There’s also widespread recognition of the potential opportunities and threats of emerging technologies. All in all, the seminar focused on the capability of Malaysian manufacturers and service providers to adapt. Pertinently, the seminar addressed the burning issues around the impact of existing production, distribution and supply channels. A final discussion point essentially provided an important measurement of the Malaysian government and industry players’ readiness to accelerate technology adoption and improve innovation activities.
