This event is for Members only.

Almost seven years after the global economic crisis, are we doing any better? While the Federal Reserve and Bank of England have been pumping money into the economy in a bid to stimulate output and employment, there is an evident lack of investments that spur real demand and create real jobs. Artificially low interest rates and excessive liquidity only increases opportunities for investment in bad projects, resulting in long-term stagnation to the economy coupled by lower growth and fewer jobs. What can Asia learn from the recessionary pitfalls of the West?

Managing Director of YTL Corporation, Tan Sri Dr. Francis Yeoh will share his thoughts on the need for Asia's emerging countries to develop and institute proper regulations to step up world class infrastructure investments that will create jobs in the short-term and lay the foundations for productivity growth in the long-term.

He will also be discussing the latest developments in the group. This small on-the-record round-table event is reserved for working-journalist only.
