|The second edition of the World Capital Markets Symposium will focus on the opportunities afforded to the global community to change international practices, rules and regulations as well as governance structures to make financial markets and systems more buoyant in times of crises. In addition, the Symposium is expected to examine the strategic role of leadership in achieving a sustainable and more balanced global growth through a more inclusive transformation process. The resilience of Asia’s financial institutions in the face of the global financial crisis of recent years has been due to the policy and regulatory adjustments post Asian crisis. Nonetheless, the repercussions of the financial crisis make it imperative that Asia contributes to the reform agenda and that Asian voices are heard in the search for global solutions.
The World Capital Markets Symposium is an initiative by the Securities Commission Malaysia to bring together influential opinion leaders, policy makers and market players from across the globe. At the domestic level, the debates and interaction with global thought leaders, regulators and market participants from around the world offers Malaysian policy makers the opportunity to engage on issues impacting the expansion and further deepening of the Malaysian capital market. The Symposium is once again anticipated to be a thought provoking platform for economics and financial experts, regulators, policy makers and practitioners to consider new options and potential solutions to the challenges we collectively face.
