VIP Luncheon with Minister of Energy, Science, Technology Environment & Climate Change - YB Yeo Bee Yin
From 2 to 20 percent! Increase tenfold renewable energy in the New Malaysia by 2025
Malaysia is heavily dependent on coal-fired power plants. Coal is mostly produced outside the country. Renewable energy must be further developed to mitigate this risk and to improve sustainability.
In the Pakatan Harapan manifesto, the coalition pledged to increase renewable energy from the current 2% to 20% by 2025. Pakatan also pledged to reduce the dependence on coal-fired power plants which is one of the power generation methods that has a serious impact on CO2 emissions. Furthermore, Minister of MESTECC YB Yeo Bee Yin recently stated recently that more transparency must be introduced in the way Independent Power Producer (IPP) contracts are awarded. The ultimate goal is to develop a new energy industry centred around renewable energy and able to provide "affordable, reliable, sustainable and long-term energy" for Malaysia.
In conjunction with reviewing energy generation strategies and policies, it is imperative to look also into a more efficient use of energy in order to minimise energy wastage in the industrial, commercial and residential sectors.
This Luncheon will discuss main policies, strategies and initiatives taken by the Malaysian government on renewable energy. Also, we will get to hear fresh perspectives from the newly restructured ministry (MESTECC) on renewable energy as the solution for a long term energy security, affordability as well as to the rural people.
Asia is the fastest growing sector of the global economy and ASEAN is experiencing the most rapid growth of the region. While ASEAN governments are struggling with rising costs in healthcare and with developing universal healthcare, the private sector is expanding and providing new opportunities for private healthcare companies as the growing middle class is prepared and willing to spend more money on their health.
Malaysia, as a “melting pot” of ASEAN, is a centrally located gateway to access the healthcare markets in the region. Furthermore, Malaysia as many other ASEAN nations has identified healthcare as a national key economic area and actively encourages investment in and development of the healthcare sector as well as public-private collaboration.
This conference aims to provide a platform for the healthcare industry players to understand the complex links between healthcare systems, government policies, epidemiological and socio-economic factors interacting and shaping the decisions of healthcare professionals, patients and consumers.
