We are pleased to inform you that MAJECA, representing AJBM Malaysia, will be hosting the 46th ASEAN-Japan Business Meeting (AJBM) on 17 March 2021 (Virtual Conference) with our co-host Keizai Doyukai (Japan Association of Corporate Executives). The ASEAN-Japan Business Meeting (AJBM) is a multilateral, private-led forum between Japan and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN). The inaugural meeting was held in 1974 in Tokyo, Japan, on the initiative of Keizai Doyukai, one of the influential national business organizations in Japan.
The 46th AJBM will continue in this vein with a digital emphasis that is very urgently needed in the current economic scenario as the nations of the world battle the COVID-19 pandemic and businesses have to transform and digitalise their operations to survive.
H.E. Dato Lim Jock Hoi, Secretary General of ASEAN and Mr Takehiko Nakao, former President of the Asian Development Bank will give us their Keynote Addresses. In addition, this conference will bring together key leaders and corporate luminaries across ASEAN and Japan to share their experiences and exchange insights under the yet prevailing COVID-19 pandemic. The theme of rebuilding, perseverance and innovation with a pivot to digitalization will be the backbone of the various Plenary Sessions.
This conference will be a virtual conference split across three value-enhancing plenary sessions discussing:
- new opportunities in the “new normal” and,
- rebuilding the value chain in Asia in light of the pandemic,
- co-creating innovation for overcoming social issues.
This conference is not only an attractive opportunity for building partnerships between ASEAN and Japanese companies on business possibilities, industrial resilience and digitalisation. Further, the conference will continue fostering the exchange of insights between key stakeholders and role players by engaging its multilateral regional network of business leaders from ASEAN nations and Japan. Additionally, the 46th AJBM, in response to the momentum of last years’ conference, will also act as a bilateral and multilateral business promotion platform for business executives, solution providers and innovators, to bring together globalised stakeholders, business giants and start-ups in the current business trends.
