Practical Insights to navigate the world  

Michael Zink, former head of Citibank's Southeast Asia region, had provided key career lessons that are timeless and practical for one who is looking to work around the world gaining international exposures. He will be concluding his 27 year journey around 10 countries and will head back to the US and settle down for a comfortable retirement.

The first advice he shared was to always have faith in your team and eventually you can reap the rewards. Michael was heading a start-up top management team in 1994 in order to fortify Citi's banking roots in Russia. A bold decision was made to employ young graduates in their young 20s without any banking experience. The graduates are all very smart and talented with big dreams. It was tough bringing up the young team but the experienced bankers managed to pull through which cemented the leadership succession status and drove Citi's business growth in the Russian region. The once raw talent rose become country leaders in Kazakhstan as well as Vietnam.
The second advice was to put in place leaders who can resonate well with clientele demographics and have high employee engagement. This is to call for a diverse set of team leaders who can reach out to different segment of the client base and employee profiles. This will bring out the best in employees and earning trust to serve society in the best possible manner. The Singaporean branch is a testament to the ideals that Citi worked hard to achieve. The top investment banking head, private banking head, commercial banking head and operations head consists of female Singaporeans. Singaporeans dominate the local leadership teams. Diversity is truly a necessity to create organizational value.
The third advice is to sharpen your skills and contribute more to rise up the ranks. Many people have this misconception that only millennials wants to contribute to meaningful work and have high learning exposures. This is not true as young graduates from the 1950s have the same notion and aspirations to work hard and be successful. Michael was tasked to handle operations in Port Gentil, a small town in West Africa. The young Michael was clueless on running a branch and did not get things going and voiced his concern to the country head for Africa. The advice he had was to be productive and useful to the organization. It hit him right in the head and proceeded to manage the branch with ease which propelled his career progression. It was intense but it boils down to perseverance and willingness to learn and fall and re-learn.
The final advice that he could offer is to seek out mentors and follow the paths of good role models. Michael was a very ambitious young lad and after about 10 years working for Citi and having 4 children, he started having difficulty balancing career aspirations and family commitments. He seek out a senior officer in Citi and managed to find out about 2 role models which had given him invaluable advice and actual evidence of having a good career while staying happily married. Always distinguish between mentors who will guide you in your career and do not hesitate to seek out role models who will guide you in your life. Be sure to show your gratitude by passing on the wisdom to the next generation after benefitting from you role model and mentor's time and generosity.
The world is huge and there are never ending stories to be heard and witnessed. Be bold to cross out of your comfort zone and stepping into a foreign country. Michael Zink is ever ready to contribute his humble opinion should anyone call upon him.


Economic Growth In Developing Nation, Philippines  

An International Organization of 189 countries, the IMF (International Monetary Fund), which facilitates the international trade and always strives for the sustained economic growth, shows 2017 projected 6.6% GDP growth with Inflation rate at 3.1%.

The Philippines country Population: 106.268 million has a status in the world economy in outsourcing business process. As it is endowed with the natural reserves like nickel, oil, coal and with a strong industrial background, the country is firmly growing mainly because of its penetrating foreign investments and remittances. The Philippine economy grew by 6.9 percent year-on-year in the first half of 2016, making it the strongest performer among major East Asian developing economies including China, Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia and Vietnam.

Here is a recent Statement by the Hon. Carlos G. Dominguez, Governor of the World Bank for Philippines on October 13, 2017

The Philippines has emerged as an important engine of growth for East Asia. We are now the second fastest growing economy in the region.

We are aspiring to achieve a growth rate of 7% this year and through the medium term. That is a rate of growth we consider sustainable given our macroeconomic fundamentals. It is a rate of growth that will happen through increased investments in modernizing our infrastructure.

The increased investments in infrastructure will be pursued without sacrificing the fiscal stability we worked so hard to achieve. We intend to fund the investments through official development assistance and a substantially broader revenue base.

A comprehensive tax reform program has been prepared to ensure a reliable flow of revenues. This will, in addition, help us reshape our economic growth to be investments-led. The new revenue architecture will be conducive to investments, simpler and easier to implement. It will be a powerful tool for achieving inclusive economic development for the Philippines.

The first, and more politically challenging component of this package is in the advanced stages of legislation. We expect the new tax policies introduced in this component to be enacted by the end of the year. The investment community warmly welcomes this package of measures and will consider enactment an indication of government's political will to do what is necessary to achieve inclusive growth.

The infrastructure program will be the main stimulus to help sustain high growth. That program is well on its way. We programmed infrastructure investments at more than a trillion Philippine pesos annually into the medium term. The whole of government is primed to see this program proceed as scheduled.

Rapid growth will be assisted by what we call a demographic “sweet spot.” Over the next few years, the Philippines will have one of the youngest workforces in the world. We are investing in the health and education of young Filipinos. This will ensure a robust base of competitive human capital. The high growth rate we are fostering will help ensure young Filipinos will not want for quality jobs in the future.

By improving our national logistics backbone, we hope to achieve dramatic improvements in both agriculture and industry. We will support this with trade facilitation, further liberalization in more areas of the economy and the achievement of an orderly political community.

There are, to be sure, some areas in the country with serious security concerns. The Philippines has become a frontline state in the global effort to contain terrorism. This year, we faced our biggest challenge as a large force of terrorists occupied parts of the southern Philippine city of Marawi. That challenge had been decisively quashed.

We expect Mindanao to lead our economic growth. With abundant mineral resources and rich agricultural land, the island holds much potential for wealth creation. That potential has been stymied by many decades of armed conflict. The present leadership aims to achieve both peace and prosperity in Mindanao over the next few years. A major portion of our infrastructure investments will go to Mindanao, helping support business activity and reducing poverty.

Philippine politics is habitually turbulent. Fortunately, there is always more sound than substance in the apparent turbulence. We are confident in sustaining the stability and sound governance that are preconditions to progress. The present leadership is unrelenting in realizing administrative reforms and fighting corruption.

Regional developments will help support our strong economic performance. The ASEAN Free Trade Area is moving ahead as scheduled. Regionalization will support industrialization. A large and increasingly prosperous regional common market will provide a nurturing base for our industries, and hence for our expanded trade with the rest of the world.

We are actively cultivating bilateral and multilateral partnerships to support our own development. These reliable partnerships have been helpful in realizing the inclusive growth we pursue.

In sum, we are moving forward as planned. The regional context is hospitable. The resurgence of global economic growth will help us sustain ours. A broad global consensus for freer trade overwhelms those instances where protectionism seems on the rise.

We are optimistic about the future. We are confident in our own ability to push forward with a viable strategy for rapid economic expansion. We are proud to perform our newfound role as a vital engine for regional and global growth.

In this beneficial context, we will be relentless in finding complementarities with our regional partners. We will be decisive in seizing opportunities. We will be assertive in transforming our economy to bring the best benefits for our people.

Ever Changing Car Markets  

The worldwide economic slowdown and negative growth has serve as a wake-up call for many consumers who had been overspending during the good times. There had been a wave of job cuts with companies declaring bankrupt. This has restricted people's spending power for buying luxury goods that they have gotten used to. People are tightening up their purse to save for a rainy day while the same case goes for national governments, whom have been figuring out methods for spending cuts. Cutting petroleum consumption is top on the agenda list. Governments had been running fiscal deficits during the good times without a proper control on spending and it is time for them to adopt some wise spending habits.Asia consumes the most number of oil in terms of global volume. China, together with Japan and India are already using 25% of total world oil consumption, with production of oil accounting for only 6.25% of total world oil output, hence making them large net importers of oil related products. These countries have been importing millions barrels of oil every single day non-stop. Their insatiable appetite for oil is mainly driven by demand from car owners.
Recently, Kia, an Asian automobile manufacturer based in Korea, launched its all new Forte Hybrid vehicle, the very first hybrid range going into mass production. Another model range was launched name Eco-Dynamics, where several environmental friendly cars, which meant lower oil consumption and gas emissions, will be marketed worldwide in many international markets.
Tata Nano, manufactured by the car company related to the famed Tata Industries, is another model launch that is predicted to capture India consumers' hearts and money, due to its extreme low retail price at below $2,000. Sales projections are expected to reach more than 100,000 vehicles, but there is potential for higher revenue with future launches. This car is targeted for the young and hip customers who will be captivated by the model and upgrade to a higher end model when their income rises. It is a classic case of capturing customer loyalty. Nano's highly successful launch had called for a new market segment and higher demand for low cost vehicles with minimal fuel consumptions.
Car companies are feeling the pinch of the economic slowdown due to cars being a luxury good. Many are cutting on production budgets for optimizing cost structure, but one area that remains spared is the development for fuel-efficient vehicles. Hyundai Motor, Honda Motor and Toyota Motor, which are South Korean and Japanese powerhouse car manufacturers have maintained research spending levels at 5% of total revenue. Hyundai has kept the research budget even on the backdrop of a $2.2 billion program for cost reduction. Car manufacturers in Asia are competing big time in the still growing industry by continuing its heavy investment outlay in R&D.
Hybrid cars development had propelled a new frontier market for batteries. Battery producers are also stepping up the game for higher R&D budgets in developing the next cutting edge battery technology. Hybrid automobile's rapid growth is the first transition and evolution for a car. As more advanced batteries are produced in the future, there will be a time where petroleum is no longer needed. Another hybrid model of the future, the Plug-In Automobile Electric Vehicles will have a bright future where sales are currently at 100,000, a tiny fraction currently from total 1.7million cars of hybrid range sold in 2015. Hakan Samuelsson, the chief executive of Volvo just announced all Volvo cars to be electric or hybrid from 2019. Tesla of course leaders in the electric field just rolled out Its first completed Model 3 (shown above).
Cars running on alternative energy supply other than petroleum are expensive to develop, but that did not deter companies from dropping heavy research funds on developing hydrogen-fuel cars. There are no mass production of these fuel cells currently which represents a big step forward on the car evolutionary stage. Hybrid industry is expected to grow many folds, as consumers get hooked on the concept which will further spur plug in cars development. This may cause petroleum based cars to be completely phased out from the market. Current hydrogen fuel technology is still not stable and too costly and this has restricted the overall growth rate for electric cars. Probably by the year 2018, battery technology will have made great progress which will further see explosion of growth for electric vehicles where cost will no longer be prohibitive.
10 Perfect Business Opportunities in Malaysia  

There are many business ideas that one can explore in Malaysia and all it takes is perseverance. Malaysia is strategically located beside Singapore, a knowledge based economy and Indonesia, largest consumer market in South East Asia. Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak has an ambitious economic growth target of doubling GDP by 2020. It has put in place many measures to attract foreign interest for setting up businesses in Malaysia. The coming paragraphs will set you on the right direction in terms of some of the best business trends in Malaysia.

First and foremost, the top business start-up is launching a travel agency. Malaysia is regarded a business district with frequent business traveller going in as well as out of Malaysia. The potential market is huge if you can carve out services specially tailored for the business travellers that are not price sensitive. The potential returns are unlimited and it requires extremely low amount of capital. Next is to make a name in the tourism segment. Malaysia hosts thousands of foreign tourists each year. Big bucks can be made for those dabbling in the travel industry. For those with sufficient capital, you can consider building a hotel chain in various tourist hot spots where there are never ending demand all season. You can offer products such as tour packages and travel related services. Budget is not a huge concern as you can always start small. Did you know airline operator AirAsia started in Malaysia.
Fashion industry in Malaysia is a good sector to venture into. Fashion is a hot topic among Malaysia citizens with heavy apparel consciousness. Fashion outlets have already flooded the market but there are still enough demand for newcomers. Learn the local tastes and culture before starting out you own fashion outlet. One can consider selling foods and various snacks in Malaysia. Malaysians are some of the best food eaters with a huge appetite to try out new things. Some of the food segment one can consider venturing is fast foods such as ice-cream or frozen yoghurt. Capital requirement is minimal as well. You can break even easily with a good concept. Remember Lazada launched operations in Malaysia back in 2012 and is now Southeast Asia's number one online shopping and selling destination, with presence in Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam.
Businesses need investors or other forms of funding to get their operations going and there are no ends to small businesses starting up every day in Malaysia. You can tap the financing markets by starting up a microfinance company that funds small businesses for a return on your capital. Having experience in the finance sector is a plus. Malaysia is a producer and exporter of oil products. One can consider selling oil as well as gas products around Malaysia. Capital requirement for starting out as a small retailer is low which you can begin by selling small ticket items like kerosene. Once you have achieved sufficient scale, you can expand by launching a gas filling station that has all assortments of oil products. Financial services company is based in Kuala Lumpur.
Internet businesses are another hot opportunity for exploration. They can throw off good money if you know the ins and outs. Many graduates have made good profits doing website design, blogging, writing on a freelance basis and many more. The market on the Internet is huge and best perk is being able to work from home. If you have the requisite professional knowledge in accounting or law, you can set up a professional services consultancy business to help provide advice for small businesses starting each day. Accounting as well as bookkeeping services will always be needed and having the skills is imperative.
Transportation in Malaysia has huge potential as current taxi services are lacking in supply. Cars that are left idle at home can be transformed into taxi via Uber services and you can start making money off driving passengers to their desired destination. Many people are in need of transportation services every day and decent living can be made. Smartphone is in the pockets of every adult and probably kids still in school. About 50% of Malaysian grown-ups own at least 1 smartphone. Huge opportunities abound for those people with the skills to perform smartphone and electronics device repair works. It is much more cost effective to repair a damaged system rather than buying a brand new one. It is one of the golden money making areas should you have the requisite skills. 
Small Nation, Smart Nation

Glance at future
Singapore's Smart Nation is starting to acquire in public sponsors and expanded its areas into different fields like traffic movements to air purity. This in return enables the government agencies to make a fast move and provide the best citizen services. Minister for communication and Information informed that if Nationwide Broadband Network will cover the wired connections, in the private sectors, whereas the Smart Nation Platform will cover the public areas. He expressed his view that this is possible if the public agencies have a collaboration with private agencies. The main components of the Smart Nation Platform were under the Infocomm Media, which is under control by private sector involving many government agencies. The common creation of both private and public agencies may gather the best ideas which may help for further development. One important strategy which is going to be launched by the economy is, boosting its economic aggressiveness in international trade.

The countries of Asia as made the region somewhat of a factory for the countries of the western world. China has only recently started to make its present felt in terms of providing the west with products. The first couple of Asian countries that acted as factories for the west includes, Japan, Singapore, South Korea and Taiwan.
