Welcome to the 5th ADVOC International Business Law Conference (IBLC-KL-2017) - 15 August 2017

As we enter the 5th year of the International Business Conference, we have decided to move the location to Kuala Lumpur, after 4 successful years in Bali. We are excited by this the change in location, and anticipate that this will encourage greater attendance by members and clients, given the ease with which Kuala Lumpaur can be reached.

Our interactive format will, I am sure, stimulate good discussions on very topical issues, and also provide a good opportunity for networking and interaction. I would encourage attendance, and also hope that there will be new faces attending, including some of our younger lawyers.

I look forward to seeing all of you in Kuala Lumpur.
