Benefits Of Exporting To Malaysia
1. Free Trade Agreement Between Australia And Malaysia
Since early 2013 the MAFTA has been in force. This high-quality Free Trade Agreement between Malaysia and Australia further integrated the Australian economy into a rapidly growing Asian region. It has made it much easier and cheaper to carry out Australia-to-Malaysia imports of services and goods because it has meant much less export tariff Australia to Malaysia, and resulted in there being NO export tariff when importing from Malaysia to Australia.

2. Malaysia’s Geographical Position
Malaysia is situated in the heart of Asia. This makes it a great location for Australian businesses to use as a base to access other powerful Asian countries such as Japan and China. Malaysia is bordered with Thailand, Indonesia and Brunei by land, and Vietnam, Singapore and the Philippines by sea.
3. Malaysia’s Growing Economy
Malaysia is a fast-growing Asian economy with a population of around 32 million. It is set to become a high-income nation by 2020. In recent years, the country has experienced rapid increases in development and infrastructure, which means increased opportunities for Australians who want to export goods to Malaysia.
4. Doing Business With Malaysians Is Straightforward
Malaysia’s population is made up of Malays, Chinese and Indians – it is a country which is very diverse ethnically. Business is carried out in similar ways as with countries such as China, India and Indonesia, which many Australian businesses are already familiar with. What’s more, the language of business in Malaysia is English which makes things easy for Australians.
