The global Pandemic is into its 3rd year with continuing disruption to business, banking and society. Whilst many countries are preparing to live with Covid as an endemic, other nations are grappling with the spike in Omicron cases. These have caused uncertainty to business and economies. The Banking industry is not spared. Banks play a critical role in national economic recovery. Banking recovery will help accelerate economic recovery and enable banks to be more supportive of industries particularly small and medium enterprises (SMEs).
Going forward, Banks need to be future proof and future ready to cope with economic, technological and societal disruptions. The impact of technology, disruption and transformation requires Banks to be more adaptive and responsive to these challenges and changes. Talent, technology and operational excellence will drive the future competitiveness of Banks. Digitization and digital banks will shape the future landscape of the Banking industry.
The 2022 Malaysian Banking and Finance Summit is a high-level Forum bringing together senior bankers, technology experts and senior consultants to share their insights and knowledge on the future of Banking. The Summit will provide a timely opportunity to discuss the role of Banks in National Economic Recovery and the post Pandemic challenges facing Banks.
