Building back better: A sustainable, resilient recovery for Malaysia’s E&E industry


The year 2020 has all the makings of a momentous year. The Covid-19 outbreak has sent global industries and economies into a tailspin, posted significant threats to the healthcare system, severely disrupted the supply chain and dampened consumer spending.

In Malaysia, the Movement Control Order (MCO) kicked off on 18th March, and curtailed economic activities severely. The Electrical & Electronics (E&E) industry was heavily impacted by the lockdown which caused manufacturing facilities to come to a grinding halt and brought about major disruptions to the supply chain.
