Japan Business Network (JBN) - Malaysia

We partner Japanese companies in growing their business to success.

PwC Malaysia is the professional firm who has more than 2,500 staffs including approximately 100 directors and 400 managers. PwC Malaysia has 6 offices nationwide including Kuala Lumpur, Penang, Ipoh, Malacca, Johor Bahru and Labuan. It would be crucial to understand the local culture, business practice to run the business in Malaysia. The Japanese Business Consulting Group of PwC Malaysia ("JBCG") was established in 1988 and has supported investments and business operations for Japanese companies in Malaysia since then. The JBCG can act as so called “convenience store” for Japanese companies in Malaysia where Japanese companies can contact us for any business matters/issues for the first contact point. Since there are some Japanese professionals who have stayed for quite a number of years in Malaysia, we believe that we can provide Japanese companies with some useful information to resolve the issues. Kindly feel free to contact us for any of business matters that you require our assistance.Besides, one of strengths we have in the JBCG is to carry out the engagement by Japanese professionals (or Japanese speaking local professionals) for Japanese companies in Malaysia, as and when it is necessary. As compared to the case where Japanese professionals can only act as “liaison” with local engagement team, it could be more prompt in terms of decision making and also more importantly, we can work towards the requirements from Japanese companies much more closely. Please feel free to contact us for any business matters/concerns.
