PETALING JAYA: Here and Now in Malaysia is produced by the Economic Transformation Program. Hosted by Kam Raslan, the episode entitled “Going Global” featured young guns out to find fame and fortune and also established brands to see how they made and have built upon success.

In this episode of “Here and Now in Malaysia”, Kam Raslan touched on the topic of “Going Global”. While it is good to have a successful product in Malaysia where you understand the product, local market and local customers, it is important to know that there is a big wide world out there with more customers. There is a market outside Malaysia that you don’t know or fully understand just yet. So what does it take and can a local company make the leap and go global?

Exampling Malaysian brands who are making or have made the leap, this episode features upcoming global players such as Aaron Gill of MyTeksi, Tee May Yee of The Last Polka, Chang Chew Soon of Soft Space and the more established brands such as Boh Boon Chiang (COO) of Kindh and Hiro Tan (Founder) of Roti Boy.

They all have had success and failures. This episode gives you a glimpse of what difficulties they faced turning local success into global success and the lessons they have learnt along the way.
