    Lessons from the Past: Strengthening Trade and Reform Agenda
    for Sustainable Growth in the Region and Beyond

    In the wake of increasing global trade tensions compounded by weaker global demand from major economies, trade activities of global and regional supply chains based in Malaysia and the region have been impacted. As we look for avenues to strengthen trade activities in the region and beyond, what are the new and existing sources of trade growth that could be developed and strengthened by Malaysia and the US to build resilience in the coming years? Could trade reforms and further regional cooperation through RCEP and CPTPP agreements provide sustainable sources of growth in the medium to long-term?
