Charles Hay MVO, British High Commissioner to Malaysia
Malaysia is in the midst of ongoing uncertainty amid a volatile political situation and the pressures of COVID-19, as outlined in a briefing note by Asia House Advisory.
The passing of the 2021 budget has thrown Prime Minister Muhyiddin a political lifeline, but the future of his government remains uncertain. Facing a resurgence of COVID-19 cases, the economy is in need of greater fiscal support, but ongoing instability in Malaysian politics has the potential to derail plans for a recovery.
Speaking from Kuala Lumpur, Charles Hay, British High Commissioner to Malaysia, will brief Asia House Corporate Members on these key developments, and their implications for UK-Malaysia relations.
Charles Hay was appointed the British High Commissioner to Malaysia in March 2019. Prior to Malaysia, Mr Hay was the British Ambassador to South Korea from 2015 to 2018. During his time in the British diplomatic services, he has been posted to the Czech Republic, Spain and the UK Representation to the EU in Brussels. Mr Hay was also the Director of Consular Services in London, responsible for assisting British nationals and in crisis management worldwide.
