CEO’s Message
Greetings from ASLI!

We have now moved into the 2nd quarter and momentum will pick up. ASLI is saddened to lose our beloved Adviser, Tan Sri Saleha Mohd Ali who
passed away at the ripe old age of 88 recently. Tan Sri Saleha is the epitome of the quintessential Malaysian. We pay tribute to her and will cherish
her memories.

This month I take on a new challenge as YAB Prime Minister has appointed me to be a member of the new Competition Commission which has been
enacted by an Act of Parliament to promote fair competition. This is a new responsibility and another opportunity to contribute to the nation.

ASLI will over the next several months be organising several key and major events-the World Women Economic Forum under the distinguished
patronage of Y.A.Bhg. Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor, Wife of the Prime Minister which will be held on 19th and 20th September and the World Chinese
Economic Forum which will be held on 3rd and 4th November. Prime Minister Dato’ Sri Mohd Najib has kindly consented to deliver the Opening
Keynote Address. More details on both Forums will be announced later.

We hope you will be able to join us at some of our forthcoming events.

With best wishes

Michael Yeoh
