Malaysia aims to attract 10 MNCs

InvestKL CEO Muhammad Azmi Zulkifli

KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia is aiming to attract at least another ten multinational companies (MNCs) to set up base and operations here with investments totaling to a minimum of RM1bil.

"This is our baseline target of RM1bil investments in Greater KL. This is our baseline number but we will aspire to do better than this," InvestKL's CEO Muhammad Azmi Zulkifli said at a press conference today.

He said investments in this area that could soon be announced include those in the insurance with up to two separate investments in this category.

"They utilise a lot of big data analytics. We are also looking at activities on how they can oversee their activities with regards to how they oversee many of their installations across Asia from this center so it is a lot of management as well as engineering," he said.

"Probably another one is related to cloud computing as well as the enterprise solutions. And for these, we are hoping to finalise within this quarter and we are optimistic of meeting the RM1bil target for the year," he added.
