Affairs in Asia and Malaysia’s role in ASEAN

In this Interview, GBP International CEO Volker Friedrich has the honor to discuss the state of affairs in Asia with the German Ambassador to Malaysia, Dr. Blomeyer. We are covering a wide range of topics from Malaysia’s role in ASEAN, China, India the environmental challenges and foreign direct investments. How can Germany and the European Union contribute to Malaysia’s own distinctive future and what makes it a good place to invest. Is it just more economic freedom such as allowing companies to buy real estate in Malaysia with 100% ownership? We are covering the arising image issues of ASEAN and its’ different political systems such as Republics, Monarchies, and Autocracies. How open is ASEAN towards international relations and investments?

The COVID-19 crisis is causing a lot of challenges for companies who want to expand or are already based in ASEAN countries. Such as limited time at the office, the lack of business travel and difficulties with insufficient workforces. How can the Embassy and the team of the German Ambassador Dr. Blomeyer assist visitors and local German entrepreneurs? How can GBP International help you with our services to overcome those challenges?
