The cascading effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and Russia’s invasion of Ukraine have hit national and global economies hard, with rising inflation and looming recession. While Malaysia’s economy has returned to growth, Malaysians, particularly the poor, youth and women, are faced with longer-term socioeconomic challenges.
In this seminar by Nurul Izzah Anwar, Member of Parliament for Permatang Pauh, the following questions were explored:
1. What are the immediate and longer-term socioeconomic challenges for key vulnerable groups?
2. Which institutions and relevant players can do more to shape their outcomes positively?
3. What are the necessary policy responses, and what are the obstacles?
