A post-COVID economy may be beyond recognition, but not something that we cannot shape. “Economic Resurgence: History in the Making”  encouraged participants to chart a superior trajectory that facilitates and encourages international trade, instead of letting the economy slip back into its pre-COVID state.

It was a privilege to be able to host notable speakers like Tan Sri Abdul Wahid Omar, Datin Seri Sunita, Dr. Hezri Adnan, Tan Sri Dr. Lin See Yan, YB. Dr. Ong Kian Ming and Professor Dr. Jomo Kwame Sundaram. Panel discussion topics included Doughnut Economic and Sustainability and Globalisation and Malaysia’s Economic Agenda. The interactive case studies were held in collaboration with PwC, Maxis and AmplifyMe. We would like to extend our gratitude to our sponsors and those in attendance, without whom this event would not have been as successful.


Themed “Economics After Tomorrow: Building Malaysia’s Economic Resilience”, the summit aims to probe into the critical questions of economic resilience focusing on job security and business resilience. Negative risks impacts embedded within the Malaysian economy and strategies to sustain Malaysia against these risks in the world of trade amidst the COVID-19 pandemic are also addressed in the summit. 

We have hosted distinguished speakers onboard namely Mr J. Solomon, Dr Achim Schmillen, Mr Wong Chan Wai, Dr Juita, YB Dr Ong Kian Ming, Dr Carmelo Ferlito, Mr Sayantan Das and Mr Chim Weng Cheong. Topics discussed in the panel session were Job Security in Malaysia: Working Our Way Forward and Business Resilience: Staying Stronger for Longer. Interactive sessions were held in collaboration with Silverlake, StashAway, IDEAS, MaGIC, PichaEats, Citrine Capital and Zucchini & Co. 

AMEU held its annual event with the theme of “The Malaysian Economy: Awakening the Asian Tiger”. The summit seeks to discuss how Malaysia has always been seen as a “tiger cub” economy despite having the potential to become a high income nation. AMEU Economics Summit 2019 explore how Malaysia can become an Asian Tiger by tackling challenges such as wage stagnation and the middle income trap while taking advantage of opportunities such as the ASEAN digital revolution.

We had the honour of having distinguished speakers such as Professor Dr. Jomo Kwame Sundaram, Distinguished Professor Dr. Rajah Rasiah and Tengku Dato’ Sri Zafrul Aziz present as our keynote speakers. Panel discussion topics included the Middle-Income Trap & Wage Stagnation and the ASEAN Digital Revolution Panel. We would like to extend our gratitude to those in attendance and our sponsors for making it possible for us to successfully execute this event.

The AMEU Economics Summit 2018 was aimed at empowering youths to play an active role in the nation-building process in the context of the “New Malaysia” and also Malaysia’s role in the global economy in this century. The summit, held for the second consecutive year, also aimed to provide aspiring young entrepreneurs with the insight and motivation they need to embark on their own entrepreneurial journeys.

AMEU Economics Summit 2018 welcomed 13 distinguished speakers such as Tan Sri Datin Paduka Sri Rafidah binti Aziz, Professor Tan Sri Dato’ Dr. Lin See-Yan and Dr. Richard Record. Interactive sessions were held in collaboration with 5 organisations, namely Teach For Malaysia, Leaderonomics, IDEAS, SIDC and Nation Building School.

Our inaugural Summit in 2017 was built on the theme of “Malaysia: Economics in the Asian Century”. The summit discussed how Malaysia should formulate its trade policies in the Asian Century, the extent to which these policies would be affected by the structural problems in the country, as well as how business transactions would succumb to the rippling changes in the Asian Century.

It welcomed a total of 13 distinguished speakers, 4 sponsors, 5 strategic partners, and 350 delegates, including corporate leaders, professionals, undergraduates, postgraduates, professionals, pre-university and high school students.
