"In 2023, InvestKL marked an outstanding year, supported by a surge in trade performance and domestic demand. This achievement is reflected by the impressive full-year gross domestic product (GDP) growth of 3.7%. This phenomenal progress was driven by the thriving services sector, which consistently accounts for more than half of the country’s GDP."
