The eight principles may not be exhaustive but based on my own experiences, they are the core tenets of success. What would you like to share that is not touched upon in the book?

The global financial crisis has revealed several structural weaknesses in the advanced economies, which will limit the growth of these economies in the short to medium term. Malaysia as a open economy could be affected through the trade and investment channels. Malaysia has therefore focused on domestic demand to propel the Malaysian economy to ensure sustainable growth. Favourable labour market conditions, stable inflation and continued access to financing will continue to support private ray ban shades sale consumption and investment activities. Through the Economic Transformation Programme, the Government has launched a series of initiatives such as human capital development and developing a conducive and competitive business environment to transform Malaysia into a high income economy and to sustain the competitiveness of the Malaysian economy. These initiatives are welcome and provide a sound basis to revitalise the engine of growth. Furthermore, Malaysia TMs resilience and capacity to withstand external shocks have improved over the years, with sound macroeconomic fundamentals, more resilient economic structure, stronger and more developed financial system and greater policy efficacy and flexibility. The increased reliance on trade with regional economies will place the Malaysian economy in a better position to endure external shocks from the advanced economies. Also, Malaysia has been active in promoting policy surveillance and coordination with other regional economies to further strengthen Malaysia and the region TMs defence mechanism against external ray ban sunglasses for men aviator shocks.
Tan Sri, from your plans and dreams, you have now a network. What is the next wave, growth strategy for the Public Bank Group?
