Malaysia’s Budget 2019 has been scheduled to be tabled by the Prime Minister on 2nd November 2018 and it has been reported that 2019 Budget will be a di­fficult one for the federal government and sacrifices are expected at all fronts for greater good of the nation. How true is this statement? The upcoming REHDA Institute’s Budget Commentary 2019 will be very much focused on Budget 2019’s impact on the real estate, construction and property sector. Is the budget squeeze in the right place? Will there be additional incentives for these sectors to boost the economy and how will the new policies affect your business?

Themed Asian Tiger – A New Journey, REHDA Institute’s Budget Commentary 2019 on 13th November 2018 is a platform that brings together expert speakers of related economic sectors to analyse and discuss the Budget proposed as well as to share insights and opportunities that transpire therefrom, especially focusing on key sectors such as banking, construction and property development.
