A guide for Taiwanese businesses currently or considering operating in Malaysia is set to be released later this year. That’s according to the Foreign Ministry’s international economics department head Lien Yu-ping (連玉蘋), who made the announcement on Thursday. The White Paper for Business and Investment in Malaysia will include information on the local investment environment, taxes, human resources, and customs.
The white paper will be the latest in a series released by the Foreign Ministry and Taiwanese chambers of commerce in Southeast Asian countries. So far, white papers have already been released for the countries of Vietnam, Thailand, Indonesia, and the Philippines.
Lien says the government decided to create the white papers following the violence against Taiwanese businesses and people during the 2014 anti-China protests in Vietnam. She says the government believed it necessary at that time to increase the visibility, organization, and mobilization of the Taiwanese chambers of commerce abroad. She says the white papers have received positive responses from the business community since they began publication.
