PwC Malaysia

We partner Japanese companies in growing their business to success.

Introduction of Japanese Business Services

Japanese flows of FDI to Malaysia have been growing by 21% per year on average since 2007, reaching $1.3 billion in 2012. FDI stock in Malaysia amounted to the equivalent of 4% of GDP.

The IMF expects Malaysia to transition from “Middle” to “High Income Country” status by 2016, with predicted average growth of 7.7% per year. The economy will move further towards services and technology, which creates opportunities for larger, value-added investment. PwC will dedicate the full extent of our regional expertise towards helping you thrive in this evolving growth market.

PwC Malaysia has dedicated a portion of its 1,800 strong multicultural and multilingual staff to a specialist Japanese Business Consulting Group (JBCG). Since 1988, the JBCG has offered quality business and investment advice and services to Japanese businesses operating in the region.
