A glittering gateway, Malaysia is a cultural melting pot with easy access to major metropolises such as Singapore, Tokyo, Jakarta, Sydney, Dubai and Hong Kong. Boasting a stable economy, the country’s GDP growth has seen a favorable average of 5.13 percent over the last few years.

Malaysia is moving towards fully developed nation status with exciting future-forward developments that include the Tun Razak Exchange (TRX), a RM26 billion project that will emerge as Malaysia’s own interpretation of Silicon Valley.
