Malaysia has launched the Malaysia results from the 2021 Edelman Trust Barometer in the four major institutions of society: government, business, media, and NGOs.
Findings highlighted the triple crises of the COVID-19 pandemic, the related economic downturn and the urgent need to address foundational societal issues, alongside an epidemic of misinformation and widespread mistrust of societal institutions and leaders around the world.
The latest findings were launched at a webinar hosted by Edelman featuring a keynote address from Dato’ Sri Mustapa Mohamed, Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department (Economy) alongside an esteemed group of panelists including:
- Datuk Nora Manaf, Group Chief Human Capital Officer, Maybank
- Dr. Jasmine Begum, Director of Legal, Corporate & Government Affairs for ASEAN and New Markets, Microsoft
- Gregory Ho Wai Son, Researcher, Khazanah Research Institute (KRI)
