Recently I had the pleasure of spending time with my colleagues in Malaysia celebrating the 33rd anniversary of our member firm RSM RKT Group, with staff and clients of the firm. Many congratulations to the RSM team in Malaysia on this great occasion.
Malaysia is going through an exciting period at the moment. The Malaysian Governments’ Economic Transformation Programme (ETP) is effectively propelling Malaysia into becoming a high-income developed nation by 2020. The process for transformation is focusing on key growth areas such as energy, tourism, business services, wholesale and retail, and of course the financial sector – a key enabler and catalyst of economic growth. They are aiming for growth of 6% to achieve this and are well on track with some economists predicting 5.1% GDP this year.
