Set-up Your Company in Malaysia

Based on the new strategy, Malaysia fosters the economy through the implementation of market-friendly policies and regulations with the aim of creating new sources of growth and promoting higher value-added sectors.

Taking into consideration the ease of doing business, talent development, and improving public service delivery, Malaysia is turning into an increasingly attractive place for businesses.
