Malaysia’s Investment Climate in 2019

25 Apr Malaysia’s Investment Climate in 2019

It is almost a year since Pakatan Harapan (PH) took office. The macroeconomic implications of their decisions are becoming clearer – certain infrastructure projects remain suspended and are pending review, with the US$20 billion East Coast Rail Link capturing headlines due to conflicting reports about its status. Projects such as Forest City and Iskandar Malaysia have been affected by domestic developments which have limited or deterred foreign investors. Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s determination to embark on a third national car project is also adding to concerns about Malaysia’s fiscal health. Factors such as these create a challenging landscape for foreign investors, even as the newly established National Economic Action Council strives to stimulate economic growth.

  • What is the prevailing attitude about investing in Malaysia among Singaporean and international firms?
  • How have PH’s policies contributed to this attitude?
  • How should the Malaysian government position itself to address these concerns and bolster investor confidence? What challenges could it face in attempting to do so?
