Malaysia national productivity blueprints

Was invited to a talk organized by Productivity Nexus giving insights about our Malaysia National Productivity Blueprints and also about the current economic situations in China.

Prof Wang Yijiang ( Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business ( CKGSB )

Up on stage was Professor Yijang from Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business – China who came and spoke about the economic situations in China and the challenges that’s currently being faced.

A bit about Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business ( CKGSB ) , its one of the prestige universities in China where its Alluminis suchs as Jack Ma and about 3000 CEOs from various Chinese companies collectively holds revenues of about 13.7% of China’s GDP.

One of the highlights was also our Malaysia National Productivity Blueprint which was the focus of MPC ( Malaysia Productivity Council ) to introduce new methods in increasing the productivity in mostly the F&B and Retail sectors.

It was really an interesting talk and was surprise that there were Govt initiatives to improve overall productivity levels in retail and f&b sectors.

There are 4 sets of KPIs in these areas which NPC are trying to achieve by engaging with local businesses and encourage growth in these areas.

Overall it was a interesting talk and met a lot of new faces as this was my 1st event this year which is NON tech / crypto related. LoLz.

Malaysia regulate ico and blockchain

So today’s hot topic in Malaysia in the blockchain space is not about how the market is doing however it more towards the announcement by the Finance Minister in regards to regulatory matters about funds thru ICOs or “digital currencies”

https://www.sc.com.my/news/media-releases-and-announcements/sc-to-regulate-offering-and-trading-of-digital-assets

With this surprise announcement, literally it also places all Crypto exchanges in Malaysia in a chaotic state as there are no clear guidelines set for licensing these exchanges.

The announcement seemed to had come out without proper planning. the announcement was issued out by Ministry of Finance however the executioner would be Securities Commissions and there is no clarity in regulating it.

Unblock Kuala Lumput

So in today’s event at Unblock Kuala Lumpur held in KL… It was obvious that the main topic of the day was around ICOs, STOs and how the announcement is effecting the Blockchain scene in Malaysia

I’m sure that the panelist was already expecting these questions however almost all answers would be just speculations.

Unblock Kuala Lumpur

In the next couple of months, I’m sure there would be more regulatory announcements would be made and guidelines will appear. Let’s hope that it’s for the better and encourage economical growth in Malaysia

Meet the titans on netflix

So after many weeks of teasers and trailers , finally TITANS started showing on NETFLIX. If you’ve seen the animated cartoon Teen Titans or a fan of the DC Universe and its TV series, you may be interested in watching this.

Led by Batman’s sidekick ROBIN, this TV series is really not too bad. And I must say its as good as the trailers.

Of course with scenes when RAVEN goes all ghosty on you , keeps reminding you of that movie The Ring. But in a good way.

So if you are just flicking thru NETFLIX and wanna watch something new, do checkout TITANS . So far I’m a few episodes in and liking it. What do you think ?
