With the government’s plans for Malaysia to achieve High-Income Status Nation by 2020, it is timely for Singapore companies in the consumer, infrastructure and business services sectors to seek out business opportunities in Malaysia

Hear from Malaysian investment authorities about new investment areas in key economic corridors. Get industry updates from Singapore companies in Malaysia. Network with in-market partners who will shed light on how to enter the market.
