Malaysia represents one of Southeast Asia's most vibrant economies, the fruit of decades of industrial growth and political stability. The country has an open economy where exports plays a major role, contributing a large portion of the country's total GDP. Malaysia's GDP growth rate is expected to grow at an average of 5% to reach $434 billion by 2017. The Malaysian government plans to carry on with the growth momentum to transform the country into a high income nation by 2020.
Lucintel, a leading global management consulting and market research firm, has conducted a competitive analysis on this country and presents its findings in "Malaysia Country Analysis 2012-2017: An Evaluation of Political, Social, Economic and Business Risk". This study provides a concise overview of the political, economic, social, technological and business risk associated with the country and the forecast of GDP and population for the next five years.
According to Lucintel's study though Malaysian economy projected a healthy and stable growth, it faced high inflations caused by the supply factors such as higher food prices and nonalcoholic beverages as well as, water, subsidy on sugar, petrol and electricity tariffs. The country, in terms of political risks, faced a major challenge due to religious and ethnic diversity in the country. The Chinese and Indian minority residing in the country considers government's economic policies to be discriminating against them in favor of the Muslim-Malay majority.
Lucintel's analysis underlines that the most attractive part of Malaysian economy is its political stability. The ruling political party of the country (Barisan Nasional) has been in power since its independence. The government also has focused on the adjustment of fiscal policy to boost revenue and cut down expenditures and aims to deflate the revenue by 3% of GDP by 2015.
