“We have invited speakers from the Malaysian government and Japanese companies based in Malaysia to touch on topics regarding the latest investment environment and available incentives,” it said.
The forum would also be zooming in on Johor, where one of the main economic corridors Iskandar Malaysia is located.
“During this session, we would be exploring the investment opportunities, introducing its digital ecosystem and explaining the recent trends of Japanese companies in this state. “This would be an excellent opportunity to grasp the current situation in Malaysia amid travel restrictions to be physically present in Malaysia,” it added.
