KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia, July 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Frost & Sullivan will host a complimentary webinar entitled "ASEAN's Growth Frontiers and Doors to AEC: Malaysia and Thailand" on 19 July 2012 at 11:00 am EDT (-4:00 GMT). This briefing will seek to understand the growth prospects and opportunities in the Emerging markets with a special focus on Malaysia and Thailand.
While most of the developed world is grappling with economic challenges, emerging countries are rising as investment hot beds. While Singapore has long played the key role is ASEAN development, Thailand and Malaysia are the mainland opportunities, as both are at the forefront of economic growth and industrial development while containing abundant natural resources. This briefing will take a deep dive into the Malaysian and Thai economies with a focus on emerging mega trends and executive insights derived from priority industries.
"Thailand will be driving enormous economic growth in Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS) due to its leading natural and economic resources as well as advanced infrastructure, connecting Myanmar, Lao, Cambodia, and Vietnam at its borders. Therefore, Thailand will be the hub of key GMS activities," observes Dr. Monsinee Kee, Country Manager, Frost & Sullivan Thailand.
"At the beginning of this decade, Malaysia set itself a target of growth of 5%-6% over the next 10 years to become a high income nation economy by 2020. In 2011, the GDP was 5.1% and in 2012 despite global economic uncertainty, Malaysia economy is predicted to grow by 4.6% according to the World Bank. Growth is driven by domestic demand and the bullish growth of its ASEAN neighbors, chiefly Indonesia and Vietnam. Malaysia is positioning itself as the gateway to Asia," notes Hazmi Yusof, Vice President, Frost & Sullivan APAC.
