ISIS International Affairs Forum on “Prospects for Global Oil Prices, World Trade and the Regional Outlook: Implications for the Private Sector”

By Mr Ayhan Kose, Director of the World Bank Group’s Development Prospects Group

Date:     4 February 2015
Venue: ISIS Conference Room, Kuala Lumpur

OVERVIEW

What is in store for the global economy in 2015 and beyond? Several major forces are driving the global outlook: soft commodity prices; persistently low interest rates but increasingly divergent monetary policies across major economies; and weak world trade. The sharp decline in oil prices since mid-2014 will support global activity and help offset some of the headwinds to growth in oil-importing developing economies. It will, however, dampen growth prospects for oil exporting countries, with significant repercussions. Ayhan Kose will present the findings of the World Bank’s January 2015 Global Economic Prospects and interact with participants on the implications for regions and the private sector.

Date: 12 January 2015
Venue: ISIS Conference Room

OVERVIEW

Colombia’s economy has grown at a 4.7% annual rate growth over the past four years, thanks to sound macroeconomic and structural policies. Foreign Direct Investment surged 148%, from USD 6.7 billion in 2010 to USD 13.5 billion in 2013. Together with three of its neighbours — Mexico, Chile and Peru — a deep integration scheme termed the Pacific Alliance (PA) is well under negotiation. A major goal is to embark on inter-regional talks with similar schemes in the Asia Pacific. Bilaterally, Colombia shares with Malaysia a diverse agenda in terms of investment, technical cooperation, cultural exchange and the commitment to attain multilateral major goals, among others.
