Malaysia is a country on the move. It is a country rich in mineral resources and fertile soils. Despite its rich natural resources, Malaysia took decisive steps to progress from an economy dependent on agriculture and primary commodities in the sixties to a multi-sector economy based on services and high-tech manufacturing.
Today, Malaysia is one of the world's largest exporters of semiconductor devices, electrical goods, solar panels and communication technology. It is also one of the top exporters of natural gas, natural rubber and palm oil. The country is also well-known for its Islamic banking and financial services.
If you want to invest in some of the leading manufacturers of semiconductor, solar panels and communication technology, Malaysia can provide access to these growth sectors.
