Last Updated : 17/3/2017 9:21 AM

  • The greatest advantage to manufacturers in Malaysia has been the nation's persistent drive to develop and upgrade its infrastructure. Over the years, these investments have paid off and serious bottlenecks have been avoided.
  • Latest, the development of Kuala Lumpur Sentral, a futuristic self-contained city, providing the perfect live, work and play environment.  A modern transportation hub integrating all major rail transport networks, including the Express Rail Link to the KLIA and Putrajaya, the government's new administrative centre.

Network of Highways

  • Peninsular Malaysia's network of well-maintained highways is a boon to industries. (e.g. Plus Expressway)
  • These highways link major growth centres to seaports and airports throughout the peninsula and provide an efficient means of transportation for goods.

Efficient Seaports

  • International trade, especially seaborne trade, has traditionally been the lifeblood of Malaysia. Today, more than 90% of the country's trade is by sea via Malaysia's seven (7) international ports namely Penang Port, Port Klang, Johor Port, Port of Tanjung Pelepas, Kuantan Port and Kemaman Port in Peninsular Malaysia and Bintulu Port in Sarawak. All these ports are equipped with modern facilities. (e.g. Bintulu Port handles liquefied natural gas).
  • In tandem with the expansion of the economy and trade, ports in the country registered impressive growth in recent years. Two of the ports; Port Klang and the Port of Tanjung Pelepas (PTP), are ranked among the top 20 container ports in the world.

International Airports

  • Malaysia's central location in the Asia Pacific region makes it as an ideal gateway to Asia. Air cargo facilities are well-developed in the six international airports - the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA), Penang International Airport, Langkawi International Airport and Senai International Airport in Peninsular Malaysia, Kota Kinabalu International Airport in Sabah, and Kuching International Airport in Sarawak.
  • Malaysia's biggest airport, the KLIA, has a capacity of handling 40 million passengers and more than 1.2 million tonnes of cargo per year.

Developed Industrial Parks

  • Industries in Malaysia are mainly located in over 500 industrial estates or parks and 20 Free Industrial Zones (FIZs) developed throughout the country.
  • New sites, fully equipped with infrastructure facilities such as roads, electricity and water supplies, and telecommunications, are continuously being developed by state governments as well as private developers to meet demand.

Specialised Parks

  • Specialised parks have been developed in Malaysia to cater to the needs of specific industries. Examples of these parks are the Technology Park Malaysia in Bukit Jalil, Kuala Lumpur and the Kulim Hi-Tech Park in the northern state of Kedah which cater to technology-intensive industries and R&D activities.
  • TPM is among the world's most advanced and comprehensive centres for R&D by knowledge based industries.

Hi-Tech Telecommunications

  • Malaysia's telecommunications network has seen impressive expansion and upgrading during the past decade following the successful privatisation of its Telecommunications Department.
  • The latest digital and fibre optics technology is being used to provide high quality telecommunication services at competitive prices.
  • Under the Equal Access Regime, telephone subscribers in Malaysia can choose from five network service providers for a full range of local, domestic and international services encompassing voice and data facilities.
  • There are also six internet service providers and five telco's and other network facilities services supporting a full range of domestic and international services.
