[Henry Goh & Co] Pursuing IP Protection in a Pandemic – Malaysian Utility Innovation Certificate

[Henry Goh & Co] Pursuing IP Protection in a Pandemic – Malaysian Utility Innovation Certificate
Report by Alvin Boey

Without a shadow of doubt that it will be very difficult and challenging to innovate and invent if these new ideas and assets are not protected.

Malaysia: Investment Performance 2019

Malaysia: Investment Performance 2019

Malaysia has been proactive during the Movement Control Order (MCO) in balancing public health and the livelihood of the people as well as strengthening the economic fundamentals by providing the necessary approval for companies in several economic sectors to operate, and are subject to strict adherence to health and safety guidelines.

“While the COVID – 19 pandemic has changed the global industrial system, MITI is committed to ensuring that Malaysia continues to be positioned as an investor – friendly location for long term growth of both foreign and domestic businesses. Foreign direct investment (FDI) is a long term capital flow. We trust that the existing foreign companies will continue to weather the storm and retain their investment in the country,” said YB Dato’ Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali, Senior Minister and Minister of International Trade and Industry (MITI), today.

Against the backdrop of a challenging external environment and declining global FDI inflows, Malaysia remains resilient and attracted a total of RM 207.9 billion of approved investments in the manufacturing, services and primary sectors in 2019, a 1.7% increase, compared to 2018. With a contribution of 60.4% (RM 125.5 billion), domestic direct investment (DDI) accounted for the bulk of the total approved investments. Although FDI made up for 39.6% (RM 82.4 billion) of the total, the value of FDI in 2019 had increased by 2.9% from the previous year.
