Malaysia Business

Malaysia business participants enjoy a diverse and relatively open market economy. While the state still plays a role in guiding economic activity, its role is declining as Malaysia strives to diversify its economy through foreign and private sector investments. Traditional sectors of the economy include palm oil, rubber, oil and gas, tin and electronics, while attempts to reduce dependence on exports and move further up the value-added production chain have led to increases in tourism, Islamic finance, high technology industries, biotechnology and services. This newly industrialized market economy, Southeast Asia's third largest, is clearly on an upward trajectory as it attempts to achieve high-income status by as early as 2020.
