The greatest advantage to businesses in Malaysia has been the nation's persistent drive to develop and upgrade its infrastructure. Over the years, these investments have paid off and Malaysia now has one of the most well developed infrastructure among the newly industrializing countries of Asia.
Network of Highways
Peninsular Malaysia's network of well-maintained highways is a boon to industries. These highways link major growth centers to seaports and airports throughout the peninsula and provide an efficient means of transportation for goods. To complement these highways, a Kuala Lumpur-Bangkok-Kuala Lumpur containerized service known as the Asean Rail Express (ARX) has been initiated with the aim of expanding it to become the Trans-Asia Rail Link that will include Singapore, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos and Myanmar before ending up in Kunming, China.
International trade, especially seaborne trade, has traditionally been the lifeblood of Malaysia. Today, 95% of the country's trade is by sea via Malaysia's many international ports. Hong Kong-based Cargonews Asia placed Port Klang and Port of Tanjung Pelepas among Asia's top ten best seaports and top ten best container terminal operators. Besides the physical infrastructure being in place, the electronic data interchange (EDI) in the ports has allowed speedy clearance of cargo with the electronic transfer of documentation
Malaysia's central location in the Asia Pacific region makes it an ideal hub to the rest of Asia. Air cargo facilities are well-developed in the international airports.
Malaysia's biggest airport, the KLIA, located 50 kilometers south of Malaysia's federal capital of Kuala Lumpur, has an initial capacity of 25 million passengers and 650,000 tonnes of cargo per year. Cargo import and export procedures are fully automated at the KLIA to cut down delivery time. Within a short span of two years since its opening, the KLIA was ranked number one for overall business passenger satisfaction* in an International Air Transport Association (AITA) survey. A recent service-quality survey by Geneva-based Airports Council International has ranked Kuala Lumpur the second best Airport in Asia after Seoul in South Korea.
Developed Industrial Parks
Industries in Malaysia are mainly located in over 200 industrial estates or parks and 14 Free Industrial Zones (FIZs) developed throughout the country. New sites, fully equipped with infrastructure facilities such as roads, electricity and water supplies, and telecommunications, are continuously being developed by state governments as well as private developers to meet demand.
FIZs are export processing zones which have been developed to cater to the needs of export-oriented industries. Companies in FIZs are allowed duty free imports of raw materials, components, parts, machinery and equipment directly required in the manufacturing process. In areas where FIZs are not available, companies can set up Licensed Manufacturing Warehouses (LMWs) which are accorded facilities similar to those enjoyed by establishments in FIZs.
Specialized parks have been developed in Malaysia to cater to the needs of specific industries. Examples of these parks are the Technology Park Malaysia in Bukit Jalil, Kuala Lumpur and the Kulim Hi-Tech Park in the northern state of Kedah which cater to technology-intensive industries and R&D activities.
Malaysia's telecommunications network has seen impressive expansion and upgrading during the past decade following the successful privatization of its Telecommunications Department. The latest digital and fiber optics technology is being used to provide high quality telecommunication services at competitive prices.
