Malaysia Country Overview
Malaysia, located in Southeast Asia country, is separated by the South China Sea into two non-contiguous
regions: even more the Peninsula Malaysia region bordering Thailand (i.e. West Malaysia) and the Malaysia Borneo
region bordering Indonesia and Brunei (i.e. East Malaysia). So, Malaysia is divided into 13 states and three
federal territories, with Kuala Lumpur as the capital and Putrajaya as the seat of the federal government.
Consequently the official language of country Malaysia is Bahasa Malaysia, and the currency is the Malaysian ringgit (MYR).
Over the last 50 years, Malaysia has developed from a primary commodities exporter to a strong industrial
base for foreign electrical and electronics multinational corporations. As an oil and gas exporter, Malaysia
has profited from higher world energy prices, but the country government recognizes the need to reduce the
dependence on petroleum as the main source of revenue. In the last decade, as it moved up the industry
value chain, Malaysia has emerged as an attractive regional hub for services, including financial services,
information and communications technology (ICT), and logistics sectors.
Malaysia is increasingly being recognised as an innovative international Islamic financial centre.
It is also emerging as a springboard or centre for regional expansion into the Association of Southeast
Asian Nations (ASEAN) in view of its strategic, central location and multi-lingual ‘Truly Asia’ mix of Malay,
Chinese, and Indian populace. PwC Malaysia has a team of over 2,000 strong in Kuala Lumpur,
Pulau Pinang, Ipoh, Melaka, Johor Bahru, and Labuan and has played an integral part in the growth and
progress of Malaysia since 1900. Today,PwC Malaysia continues to work with many large multinationals,
public sector entities, and Malaysian companies, providing solutions to their complex business issues.
PwC Malaysia provides industry-focused assurance, tax, and advisory services for public and private clients in four areas:
- Corporate accountability
- Risk management
- Structuring and M&A
- Performance and process improvement
Welcome to Malaysia
Dynamic cities, fabulous food, beautiful beaches, idyllic islands and national parks with wildlife-packed rainforests – all of this can be found in Malaysia.
The catchy tourism slogan ‘Malaysia, Truly Asia’ continues to ring true as this country really is a potpourri of Asian cultures. Muslim Malays, religiously diverse Chinese, and Hindu and Muslim Indians all muddle along with aboriginal groups (the Orang Asli) on Peninsular Malaysia and Borneo’s indigenous people, scores of tribes known collectively as Dayaks. Each ethnic group has its own language and cultural practices which you can best appreciate through a packed calendar of festivals and a delicious variety of cuisines.
For many visitors Malaysia is defined by its equatorial rainforest. Significant chunks of primary jungle – among the most ancient ecosystems on earth – remain intact, protected by national parks and conservation projects. Seemingly impenetrable foliage and muddy, snaking rivers conjure up the ‘heart of darkness’ – but join a ranger-led nature walk, for example, and you’ll be alerted to the mind-boggling biodiversity all around, from the pitcher plants, lianas and orchids of the humid lowlands, to the conifers and rhododendrons of high-altitude forests.
Malaysia’s capital Kuala Lumpur (KL) is a place where gleaming 21st-century towers stand cheek-by-jowl with colonial shophouses and pockets of lush greenery, while shoppers shuttle from traditional wet markets to air-conditioned mega malls. Unesco World Heritage–listed, Melaka and George Town (Penang) have uniquely distinctive architectural and cultural townscapes, developed over a half a millennium of Southeast Asian cultural and trade exchange. Over in the eastern Malaysian states, both Kuching and Kota Kinabalu offer fascinating introductions to contemporary and tribal life on Borneo.
The icing on Malaysia’s verdant cake is the chance to encounter wildlife in its natural habitat. The most common sightings will be a host of insects or colourful birdlife, but you could get lucky and spot a foraging tapir, a silvered leaf monkey, or an orangutan swinging through the jungle canopy. The oceans are just as bountiful: snorkel or dive among shoals of tropical fish, paint-box dipped corals, turtles, sharks and dolphins. Even if you don’t venture outside the urban centres, there are excellent opportunities for wildlife watching at places such as the KL Bird Park or Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre.
