Background: Green Technology Industry in Malaysia
Much has been said and written about Asian markets, but predominantly on China, Japan and Singapore. Often only marginally mentioned are their intense competition, market saturation and weakening growth rates. However, Asia has far more to offer than only three countries.
While proving their solid economy during the Asia Financial Crisis ’97 and Subprime Crisis ’09, Malaysia is straight on its way to becoming the third and largest developed country in Southeast Asia.
Key to advancement is a welcoming attitude towards technology developers and manufacturers. More specifically, the governmental plans point out to establish Malaysia as the green technology hub among the member countries of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN).
However, several institutions and market reports identify a lack of local industry capacity. It is intended to overcome the obstacle by attracting high-tech pioneers with generous incentives in order to facilitate a knowledge transfer.
In doing so, seeing Asia's market as entirely production market is outdated. ASEAN is a 2 trillion US dollar market with more than 600 million people. Asia's 2.0 markets describe the shift from "Made in Asia" to “Made for Asia" and recognises the growing economic strength of the region.
EU firms can thereby profit from Malaysia as the minimal risk option for foreign direct investments especially in the green technology sector by utilising the country as hub to the entire ASEAN region.
