Business environment in Malaysia

Malaysia is a key market in Southeast Asia for many Canadian exporters and one of the largest economies in Southeast Asia. The business environment is supported by sound infrastructure and transport connectivity supported by a healthy financial sector. The country remains an attractive destination for multinationals especially in  manufacturing, advanced technologies and the petro-chemical industries. Energy transition as a sector is also gaining traction. Canadian companies can gain traction in Malaysia and side-step challenges involving government procurements through partnerships with Malaysian firms, multi-national companies and joint venture relationships.
