Why Malaysia’s failure on MM2H will result in decreased FDI interest

Last month, Malaysia placed new and more onerous compliance requirements on its MM2H (Malaysia My Second Home) program. As expected, this has resulted in significant concern in regards to future FDI (foreign direct investment) in the Malaysian economy.

As I suggested a month ago in IMI Daily, it is critical in the investment migration industry that benefiting countries recognise that investors require stability and consistency.

If provided with such, they will be more than willing to continue the FDI process, which benefits all. Otherwise, countries beware for misfiring on one segment of the economy can quite quickly affect other areas as well.
