Prime Minister's Statement

We are at the dawn of the Asian century, with forecasts suggesting that Asia will dominate global trade in the next 20 years. Malaysia, home to one of the most robust and thriving economies in Asia, is responding to this shift in global economic power by building a knowledge-based, high-technology economy, implementing liberalization measures, and paving the way for superior investment opportunities. The continued development of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia’s dynamic capital, is at the heart of these plans.

We are at the dawn of the Asian century, with forecasts suggesting that Asia will dominate global trade in the next 20 years. Malaysia, home to one of the most robust and thriving economies in Asia, is responding to this shift in global economic power by building a knowledge-based, high-technology economy, implementing liberalization measures, and paving the way for superior investment opportunities. The continued development of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia’s dynamic capital, is at the heart of these plans.

With our rich historical, cultural and economic links in Asia and a geographic location that places us between China, Southeast Asia, India and the Middle East, Malaysia has the potential to become a major Asian intersection. It is our intention to realize this potential… to position ourselves as a nucleus of global talent; a centre for the development of new and exciting technologies; a focal point for the exchange of ideas and information. And at the heart of this plan is Kuala Lumpur.

What began as an idea for Kuala Lumpur International Financial District has evolved into something larger and more inclusive. The Tun Razak Exchange (TRX) is a 70-acre haven for new investment opportunities.

We also expect more than 250 of the world’s leading companies to locate here, creating 500,000 jobs directly and indirectly by the time it is fully completed. 40,000 will be knowledge workers specified to financial services, reflecting our ambition for the Tun Razak Exchange to be home to a strong, vibrant and diverse international business community.
