Discussing what to expect next in the new normal setting

The free for all webinar discussion gave viewers an idea from the point of view of IRDA, IIB and PTP, that change is inevitable. IRDA’s Engku Ahmad Kamel said every business needs to make changes accordingly to stand as reliable for partners and customers. IIB’s Fadzli supported the need for change with the evidence that customers are now looking for a smaller size office space in their buildings now that everyone goes online.  Marco also added that PTP in its 20 years of experience as an essential service industry provider has always been prepared to face the challenges that comes with the COVID-19 pandemic where some plans are accelerated ahead of the original ones that were initially spearheading.
