MINISTERIAL PANEL

The Role of the Private Sector in Regional Cooperation
The private sector has a pivotal role in regional cooperation as they are the main actors that trade and invest across borders. Hence economic and trade policies have a direct effect of enhancing or threaten regional cooperation. Do government-led integration initiatives such as ASEAN, COMESA, EAC, SADC work? What can governments do to empower the private sector and form strong linkages with counterparts within the region, and between different regions?

GLOBAL ECONOMIC OUTLOOK

The Rise of the Consumer Economy
In the past, entire supply chains were controlled by a few large companies. Today, this is being challenged by new consumer-driven frameworks that allow consumers to design, build, market, distribute and trade among themselves. This bottom up approach to value creation is fuelled by peer to peer networks, and DIY platforms that constitute the ‘frugal economy’. Will frugal economics shape the next decade? What will happen to the traditional value supply chain?

Achieving Synergies between Corporations and Startups
Corporations are increasingly working with start-ups in a bid to outsource some of its technological requirements or business operations. The reason is simple; cost and efficiency. As start-ups are by nature lean and nimble, it makes for more cost effective business ventures. What are the deal-making factors? What are the compelling case studies?

PANEL DISCUSSION

Can Islamic Fashion Become Haute Couture?
Islamic fashion is often criticised for only catering for the Muslim consumers and will not make it to the mainstream and high fashion market, but facts tell us otherwise. The consumer base for Islamic fashion draws from a diverse range of people who are also non-Muslims. By the sheer number of potential consumer spending, this sector will take the world by storm. In 2013, Muslims spent US$266 billion on fashion alone, more than that of Japan and Italy combined. This figure is expected to increase to US$484 billion in 2019. For a market estimated to be worth US$96 billion, and with many mainstream brands creating modest fashion capsules, the modest/Islamic fashion movement can make it big. What are the constraints and prospects for it to enter into the haute couture scene?

Empowering Women in eCommerce
E-commerce has blossomed into a multi-billion dollar industry. With women accounting for around 58% of all online purchases and deciding between 83 - 87% of consumer purchases, the role of women in shaping the online business landscape is bigger than ever. This has given rise to e-commerce businesses run entirely by women and sometimes exclusively for women, which gives a strong validation that there is a huge potential role for women to play in the e-commerce space. What are the effective steps for women to participate in this industry? Is running a business from home entirely possible?

PANEL DISCUSSION

Linking Islamic Financing to the Halal Sectors
The global halal industry, encompassing food, textiles, tourism and healthcare, will double to US$6.4 trillion by 2018 from 2012, according to the Malaysia International Islamic Financial Centre (MIFC). But this consolidated industry, dubbed “Halal 3.0”, will not be realised unless there is connectivity between funding and business expansion in these various halal sectors. Islamic Banks have traditionally financed businesses in the real-estate commercial and residential sectors, but have not contributed to the expansion of the halal businesses. What are the steps to close the credibility gap? What can halal businesses do to improve their creditworthiness?

Restructuring SMEs and Improving Credit Access
SMEs are beset by all sides with financial restrictions that impede their business expansion. In most cases, banks require huge collaterals from SMEs for loans, a treatment not accorded to big businesses that have the same propensity to default. One of the reasons is the structure of SMEs that is not scalable and attractive to financial institutions. What are the various credit access options available to SMEs? What is a conducive structure for SMEs to receive sustainable financing?
