Who is The Business Year?
TBY is a global media group that provides investors, businesses, and governments with first-hand insights into the world’s most dynamic markets for over a decade. It conducts hundreds of interviews a week with top decision-makers in the Middle East, Latin America, Central and Southeast Asia, Africa, and Europe. Its country-specific publications are also among the most comprehensive annual economic publications available internationally.
TBY’s Malaysia coverage began in 2016 with the latest publication on the country for 2019. MIDA has partnered with TBY together with the British Malaysian Chamber of Commerce (BMCC) for the production of The Business Year: Malaysia 2019 featuring economic opportunities in Malaysia. Having Malaysia’s GDP grown almost five-fold over the past 20 years, TBY’s research ahead of the 2019 publication was carried out against a backdrop of successful diversified growth, a goal many economies struggle to achieve.
The publication which was published in August 2019 covered every major sector within the Malaysian economy including finance, energy, green economy, industry and high technology, transport, construction, real estate, health, education, tourism, and retail. Among the high-profile personalities from across the country interviewed by TBY are Dato' Khairussaleh Ramli, Group Managing Director and CEO of RHB Banking Group; YB Puan Yeo Bee Yin, Minister of Energy, Science, Technology, Environment and Climate Change (MESTECC); Mr. Chong Yee Mun, CEO of Prince Court Medical Centre (PCMC); YBhg. Datuk Dr. Mohd Yusoff Sulaiman, President and CEO of Malaysian Industry-Government Group for High Technology (MIGHT); Dr. James Tee, Managing Director and CEO of Medini Iskandar Malaysia (MIM); and YB Datuk Mohamaddin Ketapi, Minister of Tourism,Arts and Culture (MOTAC). The publication also included a range of analysis on key areas including Islamic finance, solar energy, nanotechnology and the Penang Automation Cluster.
