The Edge Malaysia - How Malaysian Companies See Business in 2020 (16 December 2019)

Despite external headwinds, Malaysian companies are not as gloomy about their business prospects next year as one might expect. HSBC's latest global survey, "Navigator: Now,next and how for business", which gauges business sentiment and expectations of trade activity and business growth of 9,131 companies in 35 markets - including 202 firms in Malaysia - indicates that Malaysian businesses are optimistic about the outlook for the year ahead. In fact, 81% of businesses forecast sales growth next year, largely through improved productivity and entry into new markets. Nevertheless, confidence is not unanimous across Malaysian firms, with almost 31% of companies more pessimistic about growth than a year ago - considerably more downbeat than the global average (18%). Read on for other interesting results from the survey, which was conducted between August and September this year.

The Edge Malaysia - Malaysia's Critical Occupations List (23 September 2019)

Our shift to an economy based on high productivity and knowledge creation has resulted in shortages in the labour market. Since 2015, the government has come up with an annual critical occupations list (COL), which basically registers jobs that employers want to fill but have difficulty filling. These are jobs that are middle or high-skilled, sought-after and strategic. The COL is designed to be a tool to help policymakers make decisions, including on education and training programmes, says the World Bank, in its report "Monitoring occupational shortages - Lessons from Malaysia's critical occupations list". Here is the 2018/19 list, which comprises 59 jobs, ranging from managing directors and CEOs to mechanical engineers, software developers and lorry drivers.
