Among the many factors that contribute to the attractiveness of Malaysia as a business hub for many of these corporations are:
- Language - English is widely spoken and is a compulsory academic subject. This makes it easier for foreign businesses to develop and integrate local talent with their global resources.
- Ownership - Foreign investors are allowed to fully own companies.
- Natural and human resources - Malaysia has an abundant supply of natural resources and also a highly-skilled labour force.
South East Asia is a booming region with a growing population of over 650 million. Malaysia is well-positioned to not only capitalise on its unique position in this growing regional economy, but to even pioneer it.
