Ecosystem Support & Incentives

WHY NCER?

NCER offers investors a dynamic and vibrant business ecosystem with ideal opportunities for growth and profits.

 

In addition to its well-developed infrastructure and productive workforce, the region is governed by a well-established legal system with pro-business Government policies and supported by a market-oriented economy.

 

The powerhouse economies of China and India are also easily accessible from the region via world-class transport infrastructure, which provides further opportunities for cross-border trade and investment.

 

Malaysia, with its open and liberal economy policies, has Free Trade Agreements (FTAs) with most of its trading partners and is a member of the ASEAN Free Trade Area (AFTA). This allows businesses in NCER to engage in virtually tariff-free trade, which in turn enables cost-effective businesses.
