Malaysia Property Investment For Sale
"Major Malaysian cities flourish under foreign interest."
As one of the principle Dragon Economies Malaysia has a thriving economy, stable if conservative society, highly educated population, excellent health care, good transport links and a growing export and tourism trade whilst offering the most lenient property ownership laws within Asia.
Much of Malaysia’s success could be put down to its multicultural society which has its origins in the country’s colourful history. With a population that includes Malays, Chinese, Indians and Eurasians, Malaysia has a clear legal system and labour laws are well-formulated to offer employment security. Education of the workforce is taken seriously and unlike some of its Asian neighbours, literacy rates are high at just under 90% so Malaysian workers tend to be highly motivated especially in the services sector.
Today the country’s main exports are electronic goods and electrical machinery, with a healthy growth in the fields of technology, research and development, finance and pharmaceuticals, much of it based around the capital Kuala Lumpur.
There are limited restrictions on foreigners working in the country and relaxed laws on foreign property ownership which has resulted in extensive investment by overseas nationals buying here. With a low-cost but high standard of living as well as some of the most beautiful beaches in the world and the oldest rain forest on earth, Malaysia has a thriving tourism industry which offers high rental yields in the holiday destinations. Strong economic growth and large amounts of foreign investment have also kept the housing marketing buoyant and rental returns high in Kuala Lumpur.
