This publication highlights the advantages that make Greater Kuala Lumpur (KL) an ideal gateway and commercial hub for companies across the world who wish to tap into Asia’s emerging market – a market that is poised to be among the fastest growing in the world.
Situated at the centre of the trade route between China and India, and next to one of the world’s busiest shipping lanes – the Straits of Melaka – Greater KL’s strategic location adds to the city’s attractiveness as a business destination.
The city has evolved to become a dynamic hub for domestic, regional and international markets. It has flourished because of a number of factors, including its skilled workforce, efficient and competitive market, and readiness to adopt new technology.
The storied history of the city has also given rise to a multicultural and multilingual society: a unique community well versed in Malay, Chinese and Indian customs that is culturally compatible with major Asian markets.
