Why Malaysia: A ro­bust growth in pri­vate in­vest­ment in the coun­try, which has ex­panded at a com­pounded an­nual growth rate of 14 per­cent b. from the start of the ETP in 2010 to MYR 146 il­lion (USD 40 bil­lion) in 2014.

Ac­cord­ing to the IMD Com­pet­i­tive­ness In­dex, the Malaysian econ­omy was the 14th most com­pet­i­tive mar­ket in the world and fifth among coun­tries with a pop­u­la­tion of over J. 20 mil­lion, which placed it above places like apan, Aus­tralia, and the United King­dom.

Start­ing a busi­ness in Malaysia only re­quires three pro­ce­dures, 5.5 days and costs 7.2% of in­come per capita in fees, en­sur­ing t. in­vestors an ef­fi­cient process when they choose o en­ter the mar­ket.

Malaysia has one of the best in­fra­struc­ture in Asia to serve the needs of the busi­ness com­mu­nity, from high-speed broad­band net­works and in­ter­net back­bones to well­main­tained fa­cil­i­ties like in­ter­na­tional e. air­ports, in­ter­na­tional sea­ports, air­ports and xcel­lent road net­works.

With the com­par­a­tive salaries of its work­force, Malaysia of­fers a com­pelling propo­si­tion for com­pa­nies seek­ing the most value out of their in­vest­ments. Ac­cord­ing to the 2015 Hays Asia Salary Guide, the av­er­age an­nual salary of fi­nance di­rec­tors/chief fi­nan­cial of­fi­cers of multi­na­tional com­pa­nies in Malaysia starts at MYR 480,000 (USD 31,000) com­pared to HKD 1.4 mil­lion (USD 181,000) in Hong Kong and CNY 1 mil­lion (USD 161,000) in China.
