  • The Importance of Top Quality Employees in Malaysia and Tips on Finding Them

    December 9, 2014 | Sharon Cheong

    Malaysia has a fine reputation for providing businesses with opportunities to develop. It has long been one of the most successful locations for doing business in South East Asia. Many companies open new branches or relocate some of their existing interests to the area. Undoubtedly, the bulk of companies moving there choose the capital city of Kuala Lumpur. The success of Malaysia in terms of business development can perhaps be traced back to its origins. It was once a British colony and as such has developed much of its infrastructure and laws in the same way as the United Kingdom. This is particularly evident when you consider their government system, which was based on the parliamentary system in Westminster. Malaysia continues to enjoy a vibrant economy. The ongoing success of businesses in Kuala Lumpur is perhaps the main reason behind that.
