10:05am Panel Session: ‘The Two-Wheeler Market – Mobility, ESG and the ASEAN supply chain’

The ASEAN two-wheeler market represents more than 25 per cent of the global market and growing exponentially. From urban planning to environmental, social and governance (ESG), the two-wheeler industry can contribute to this trend and ultimately to the nation’s economy. What are the business opportunities for Malaysia especially in the context of the regional supply chain? 

With technology trends capturing the media narratives, especially as electric vehicles and reduced emissions technology become more commonplace, the trade and investment opportunities are what business leaders need to understand.

*This panel session will continue until 10:45am. Speakers and Moderator will be announced soon.

There is a continued need to promote knowledge about road safety among ASEAN countries. This includes road laws, data management, standards development, education and road safety awareness.

As we continue to design a future that is sustainable, all stakeholders must come together and make informed decisions based on the latest data. Innovative solutions that save lives and empower the economic dynamic will ensure those on two wheels can lead happier lives.
