Dear loyal members,

A very happy 2022 and welcome back. I trust you had a memorable year-end break, and are rejuvenated and raring to get back into the world of business! Throughout 2021, we went through various challenges and trials - however, this does not break the spirit as we learnt to manage and overcome the suddenly-transformed business landscape.

After a year of valuable lessons, I would say there is a lot to be hopeful and excited for moving forward. We will revive 2022's calendar of events starting with our traditional New Year's Drink this January 13th - to welcome back all of you and toast to the new year. Along with a pipeline of scheduled talk and networking events, we are hopeful and excited to see all of you.

To all our valued members, sponsors and partners, we thank you as always for your enduring support and we look forward to sharing a memorable 2022 with you.

Tay & Partners | Privileges for those Fully-Vaccinated in Malaysia
Privileges for those fully-vaccinated in Malaysia, is this a form of discrimination? In recent months, the government’s effort in ramping up the vaccination rate has been achieved with commendable success.

The government's relaxation of SOPs essentially provides differentiated treatment or privileges for the fully-vaccinated people to go to malls, enjoy restaurant dine-ins and attend prayers at houses of worship.

Such policies may be effective in persuading at least some unvaccinated people to get the jabs, but they also attracted criticism and controversies, including potential lawsuits against the government for discrimination.
