The year 2017 is not an easy year for Malaysian economy due to weakening ringgit. However, it has not affected the confidence of foreign investors to continue investing in the country. In fact, Malaysia’s economic outlook shows improvement with economic growth in the first quarter of 2017 and it has been named as one of the top recipients of foreign direct investment (FDI) in Asia by Forbes, followed by Singapore, Vietnam and Indonesia.
a. Now is the Golden Age
In fact, it is now time for investors to venture into Malaysia as Malaysia has underperformed its peers in the emerging markets due to several reasons, among them being the weakening ringgit. Many view Malaysia as the “low-cost financial hub” in Southeast Asia region and it is rising as one of the preferred destinations to do business in the region.

The recent launch of Digital Free Trade Zone (DFTZ) in Malaysia is the world’s first digital free trade zone and it will certainly boost the eCommerce growth in Malaysia as well as the neighbouring countries. DFTZ offers opportunities for SMEs to capitalize on the internet economy and cross-border eCommerce activities by providing physical and virtual zones to facilitate them to grow.
