WHY THE MALAYSIA MARKET?
Malaysia is one of the fastest growing markets for UK exports and despite the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, this market continues to offer opportunities across a wide range of UK exports as demand increases for a variety of goods and services. The majority of Malaysia’s population is young and growing with over 30 million consumers. Malaysian society is multi-cultural and multi-lingual, but English is the business language and is widely spoken—particularly in metropolitan areas. British brands are well respected in the market, offering vast opportunities for health & life science companies from the SE of England.
