Malaysia is a newly industrialized country and an open economy system that is moving towards a market economy. Rich oil production supports the industrialization of its national economy.

Under the new economic policy, Malaysia changed from a raw material producing country to an emerging diversified industrial economic system from the period 1971 to the end of the 1990s.

The Malaysian economy has grown steadily since 1987. Since then, Malaysia’s economy has grown at an average annual rate of 8%, higher than other Southeast Asian countries.

Economic growth depends mainly on the export of manufactured goods, especially electronic products. Most of the economic growth comes from direct government investment.

In 1990, foreign investment in Malaysia reached a peak of RM17.6 billion.

Malaysia is the third largest economy in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations, second only to Indonesia and Thailand, and ahead of Singapore. Services, industry and agriculture account for 55%, 36% and 9% of the country's GDP, respectively. Major industries in Malaysia include electronics, automotive, palm oil processing, construction, finance, insurance, real estate, wholesale and retail.

Malaysia's GDP growth rate slowed from 6% in 2014 to 5% in 2015, with services and industries growing by 5.2% and 5.5% respectively. In the Malaysian economy, tourism is a fast-growing area. The Malaysian government expects tourism revenue in 2016 to reach $24 billion, or about 15% of GDP.

The Malaysian government launched the "Economic transformation plan" (ETP) in 2010, which lists 12 national key economic sectors that have the greatest potential to promote overall economic growth, including palm oil cultivation, tourism, financial services and electronics.

The economic transformation plan is a comprehensive economic plan with the goal of promoting Malaysia to become a high-income economy with a per capita income of $15,000 by 2020.

The "Economic transformation plan" is now proceeding steadily. The "Eleventh Five-Year Plan" announced in May 2015 will further support it. The plan includes a number of measures and is the last five-year plan for Malaysia to achieve its high-yield target by the 2020 deadline.

In the Association of Southeast Asian Nations, Malaysia is a country with a good ranking of democratic politics, government integrity, and a relatively stable political economy. Malaysia's GDP has shown a long-term steady growth. The goal of increasing GDP per capita is also continued under the leadership of the Malaysian government, indicating that the investment risk is relatively lower than that of other ASEAN countries.

The value of the long-term investment that the market expects has emerged!
