Message from our Regional Senior Partner (ASEAN) and Managing Partner
This year has been the most challenging of all for Malaysia compared with the previous years due to two major developments which occurred in close succession in the first quarter of 2020. The first being the unprecedented change of government in February.
Then in early March, the country experienced a rising number of Covid-19 positive cases leading to the Movement Control Order (MCO) which was enforced from 18 March to 31 March 2020. On 25 March 2020, another announcement was released on the extension of the MCO for another 14 days from 31 March until 14 April 2020. The MCO only allows essential services such as banking, food retailers and a specific list of other industries to be in operation. All other businesses are required to close their premises to curb the spread of the Covid-19 virus.
Nevertheless, I wish to assure you that BDO in Malaysia has put in place various measures to continue providing you the best service in this unusual circumstance. Our communication lines remain open and we continue to be in contact with our current and future clients via digital platforms.
In such a volatile economic environment, it is even more crucial for businesses to implement financially wise strategic measures immediately. BDO is ever ready to assist you to the best of our capacity by helping you navigate these changes.
