Species of the genus Schefflera in Araliaceae family has palmately-compound leaves. Here the leaves are simple. Hence I don’t think this would be a species of Schefflera.

Leaves seems simple and opposite too,  very close to Lamiaceae member, might be Premna or Others,

To me it looks a species of  Premna, for opposite leaves, inflorescence and the calyx tube

Premna panduana
