Malaysia is the fourth Ecovis country in the growth region of Southeast Asia following Singapore, Indonesia and Vietnam. The country achieved independence in 1957; the Federation of Malaysia was established in 1963 and consists of 13 states and 3 federal territories with a multi-ethnic and multi-cultural population of about 28 million. Since its foundation Malaysia has enjoyed substantial success in reducing the rate of poverty and accelerating growth while maintaining a democratic political system.

With GDP growing on average 6.5% annually Malaysia, a newly industrialized market economy of Malaysia, has one of the best economic records in Asia. In 2010 the GDP was USD 414 billion, representing the 3rd largest economy in ASEAN and the 29th largest in the world.

Malaysia’s economic rise started in the 1970s, when the predominantly mining and agriculture based economy began a transition towards a more multi-sector economy. Since the 1980s the industrial sector has led the country’s growth. However, Malaysia is still an exporter of natural and agricultural resources like petroleum, tin, rubber and palm oil. In order to diversify the economy and make the country less dependent on exported goods, the government has promoted the tourism sector which now is the third largest source of income from foreign exchange.

Thus Malaysia in the 21st century is confident in its economic achievements and aspires to be a leader amongst Asian nations. Its Economic Transformation Program
unveiled in 2010 is aiming at doubling the per capita income by 2020 and transforming Malaysia into a globally competitive, developed economy.
