The Economy of Malaysia Transformation

When the nation first gained independence in 1957, the economy was completely dependent on rubber and tin. However, our ability to transform the economy since the 1970s has turned it into one where the industrial and services sectors contribute almost 90% to the Gross Domestic Product (GDP).

This index is based on 12 pillars of competitiveness and productivity, i.e. institutions, infrastructure, macroeconomic stability, health and primary education, higher education and training, goods market efficiency, labour market efficiency, financial market sophistication, technological readiness, market size, business sophistication, and innovation.

Kuala Lumpur is still among the least expensive cities in terms of cost of living when compared with other major Asian cities, according to the Cost of Living Survey by ECA International for 2010.

KL is the 31st most expension location within Asia, out of the 50 Cities Surveyed.
