Breakfast Seminar With IMF Resident Representative

IMF Seminar
IMF Seminar

The Embassy and the Malaysia Norway Business Council hosted a breakfast seminar with International Monetary Fund Resident Representative, Dr Jochen Schmittmann. The event included a buffet breakfast in the Residence gardens, the lecture and a Q&A session.

Discussing the IMF's latest outlook on Malaysia, Dr Schmittmann presented a comprehensive overview of Malaysian macroeconomics, predictions and recent developments. Being held less than a week after the release of Malaysia's 2018 state budget, the seminar proved to be especially interesting and most timely.

In addition to the valuable insights offered by Dr Schmittmann and the opportunities for discussion, the breakfast seminar provided a great opportunity for the Norwegian business community in the region to network and enjoy a social morning in the beautiful setting of the Norwegian Ambassador's Residence.
