Malaysia As A Principal Hub For Chinese Investments In ASEAN


At the Conference On Legal Risks And Countermeasures Of International Investment And Trade at Friendship Palace in Beijing, China on 27 August 2018, I spoke about “Malaysia as A Principal Hub For Chinese Investments In ASEAN” and made the following points:

(1) our New Malaysian government’s support for China’s Belt And Road Initiative, the 2000 years of warm bilateral trading and cultural relationship between Malaysia and China and our continued welcome for Chinese enterprises to invest in Malaysia;

(2) Malaysia’s tax and Principal Hub incentives for foreign companies operating from Malaysia as a launch pad for expansion in ASEAN;

(3) Malaysia’s decades of experience as manufacturing hub with excellent industrial parks, factories, roads, rail, port and other transportation and logistics network with capacity to absorb the migration of trade war supply chain refugees from China;

(4) Malaysia’s strengths in political stability, supportive government policies and bilingual English Chinese speaking population etc where Chinese and other foreign companies can operate successfully;

(5) Malaysia government’s joint venture with Alibaba to launch the world’s first Digital Free Trade Zone and eHub and operate an ecommerce logistics centre in Malaysia to tap the digital economy future of Asia;

(6) the importance of adequate preparation, risk assessment / risk mitigation and legal compliance of Chinese companies before venturing abroad.
