Event Details

Gauntlets are down and battle lines are being drawn in the emerging trade war across the Pacific (and elsewhere). U.S. businesses whose global supply chains run deep into Asia are waiting to see how they will be impacted. What does this all mean for American businesses operating in and trading with the rest of Asia and, what are the potential spillover effects?

Please join AMCHAM for an exclusive program on Wednesday, 25 July 2018 at the Shangri-La Hotel Kuala Lumpur with some of the most focused minds contemplating these issues:

Richard Cantor, Chief Risk Officer, Moody's Corporation

Marija Zivanovic-Smith, Vice President of Corporate Marketing, Communications and Government Relations, NCR Corporation

Laura Lane, President, Global Public Affairs, UPS

Monica Hardy Whaley, President, National Center for APEC

The APEC Business Advisory Council (ABAC) was created by the APEC Economic Leaders in November 1995 to provide advice on specific business sector priorities and to provide the business perspective on specific areas of cooperation. ABAC comprises of up to three members of the private sector from each economy. ABAC is the sole non-governmental entity that has an official role in the APEC Economic Leaders' Summit through a formal dialogue.

We look forward to a candid discussion. Seats are limited and please contact Ms. Elyna Ngu at for any queries.
