Crash Course on Starting a Business in Malaysia




As a more mature economy in Southeast Asia, Malaysia presents many favorable conditions that international investors are attracted to when venturing into the region: a robustly growing economy, a pro-business government, an educated workforce, developed infrastructure, and a highly vibrant consumer market. The World Bank last year listed Malaysia as the 12th easiest country in the world to do business. According to the Global Competitiveness Report 2019, Malaysia was the 27th most competitive economy globally.

This appealing business environment has made Malaysia one of the highest recipients of foreign direct investment (FDI) in Southeast Asia. As the economy continues to strengthen its integration into the regional and global value chain, numerous opportunities have arisen in key sectors such as manufacturing, financial services, and information technology.
