Calvin Cheng, Researcher at the Economics, Trade and Regional Integration division of the Institute of Strategic and International Studies (ISIS), examines the impact of the US-China trade war on Malaysia and whether it’s fair to compare Malaysia and Vietnams’ economies. Global supply chains have changed and we should instead track Taiwan which has been importing more from Malaysia. Cheng also makes a case for economic reforms and regional integration to insulate our economy.
