MITI and InvestKL provide clarity to investors

KUALA LUMPUR (19 February 2019) - InvestKL and The Ministry of International Trade and Industry (MITI Malaysia), represented by YB Dr Ong Kian Ming, held a closed-door roundtable discussion with analysts to provide clarity in investments.  

The roundtable was held following InvestKL Performance Update 2018 (earlier in the day), which highlighted key investments in high value services. 

“InvestKL remains focused on attracting high value, high skilled and innovation-led investments to create quality jobs for Malaysians. Despite a slower global economy and U.S. – China trade tensions, our investment pipeline is resilient as investment decisions are made over a longer period. We are confident of attracting similar investments this year.”, noted Datuk Zainal Amanshah. 

InvestKL continues to align with MITI Malaysia to emphasize on the 5Cs, re-enforcing the ease of doing business initiatives for multinationals operating in Malaysia. 

“We are focused on attracting MNCs from the U.S., Europe, China, Japan and South Korea. These countries are strong in the six sectors that we are pursuing. These sectors are smart technologies, consumer technologies, e-commerce, medical devices, industrial automation, as well as energy and renewables.”, added Datuk Zainal on InvestKL’s plan moving forward.
