Malaysia, home to a population of over 30 million, is an upper-middle income country, and one of the more developed economies in South East Asia. Malaysia’s economy expanded by 4.3% in 2019 to reach USD 329 billion. The economy is well-diversified in terms of sources of growth and revenue owing to the economic, financial and fiscal reforms undertaken thus far by the government.
Major sectors include electrical appliances, electronic parts and components, palm oil, petroleum and liquefied natural gas, wood and rubber. Manufactured goods make up a large portion of Malaysia’s exports. The country is gearing up to become a high-end manufacturing base, and is focusing on the services sector as the next engine of growth.
As one of the emerging economies in South East Asia, Malaysia offers a strategic and competitive location for business for foreign enterprises. The country has adopted a business-friendly environment to attract businesses and investments from abroad. Malaysia’s well-performing economy, pro-business policies, liberalized investment policies and tax incentives are the main factors that encourage foreign enterprises to operate in the country.
Orissa International conducted business matching for a European wholesaler and distributor of pharmaceuticals, which sources and supplies its products across 6 continents. The company supplies over 1,500 pharmaceutical lines to its clients, mostly unlicensed pharmaceuticals, orphan drugs and specialty medicines. The client was searching for companies in Malaysia who were already importing unlicensed medicines and were interested in European products.
