In my view, Malaysia is a very attractive investment destination in Asia. According to the International Monetary Fund (IMF), Malaysia is expected to grow 5.3% in 2011 and 5.6% in 2012. Through the New Economic Model, it will facilitate a more market oriented economy. Sooner, our country will be back on global investors radar screen.
Previously, we can’t deny that Malaysia has been viewed as defensive market, which works remarkably well for the country. However, our local stock market has been posting excellent performance recently and it’s always outperforming the emerging market indices. So, it’s highly likely that Malaysia will be moved to the advanced emerging market from the secondary market.
