The relationship between Malaysia and Japan has strengthened over the years to encourage economic growth. Investment opportunities in Malaysia have been favourable and there has been an increase in interest by Japanese investors. As of 2017, there were 1,500 Japanese companies operating in Malaysia, a majority of which are in the manufacturing sector. Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Malaysian Investment Development Authority and InvestKL to encourage more Japanese companies to invest in Malaysia. Malaysia continues to offer a positive investment climate to both individuals and companies as the country is favourable to investments to boost the local market.
