Two years after the coronavirus first emerged, countries in Southeast Asia now learn to live with COVID-19 and anticipate economic recovery to be more pronounced in 2022. With a shift to treating the pandemic as endemic, Malaysia’s economy is also expected to be on its path of recovery this year, backed by the reopening of economic and social sectors.

To support the recovery of COVID-impacted sectors, the Malaysian government has allocated a total of RM332.1 billion for Budget 2022, the highest value compared to previous budgets. Budget 2022 builds upon three key pillars: strengthening recovery, rebuilding national resilience and catalysing reforms for a sustainable economy.

The growing allocation towards sustainability in Budget 2022 reaffirms Malaysia’s commitment towards a sustainable future. Both public and private sectors are encouraged to integrate environmental, social and governance (ESG) frameworks in their governance, business strategy, operations and risk management.

Nevertheless, the mutation of coronavirus, worsening supply chain disruptions, higher energy prices and labour shortages may present a new wave of volatility and affect business profitability and growth in Malaysia this year and beyond.

With the pandemic far from over and with the heightened push to fast-track digital agenda to thrive in this new COVID economy, what will be the day-to-day portfolio of forward-looking CFOs and finance leaders in Malaysia in 2022?

How can strategic CFOs and finance executives stay agile, react immediately and make informed decisions when they need to make sharp turns through uncertainty? Under a cloud of a pandemic-induced labor shortage and foreseeable hybrid working environments, what strategies will enable CFOs to win the “war for talent”? How should finance leaders in Malaysia lead ESG adoption to propel business growth?
