Large format stores such as hyper-marts encourage competition and quality in the retail market due to purchasing power and modern retailing practices. Since its liberalisation in 1995, the sector has grown significantly and the market is now made up of a healthy mix of both local and foreign players.
  • How can SMEs impress hypermarts enough to pick up their products?
  • What are the successful co-operation models between SMEs
  • Will large format stores cannibalise smaller businesses?
  • Can there be perfect balance between industry growth and competitive pricing?
These issues and more will be tackled by a dynamic panel comprising:
  •  Datuk Wira (Dr.) Haji Ameer Ali Mydin, Managing Director, Mydin
  •  Georg Fischer, Chief Executive Officer, Tesco Malaysia
  •  Meor Kamal Azhar, Senior Director, SME Corp. Malaysia
  •  Hernan Sanchez, General Manager, Kantar Worldpanel Malaysia
  •  Umapagan Ampikaipakan, BFM (Moderator)
