ECER is a Region with vast growth potential that is waiting to be tapped by visionary domestic and foreign investors alike.
ECER has an abundance of natural resources such as crude oil, natural gas, minerals, palm oil, rubber and others. It also has an abundance of competitive-priced land that is ideal for a diverse range of business activities such as agriculture and manufacturing. ECER’s natural geographic position also makes it an ideal Gateway to the Asia-Pacific, which presents tremendous advantages to investors with international ambitions.
There is strong and consistent political will from both the Federal and State Governments to unlock the potential of the Region. The success of pro-business and liberal investment policies, and the commitment to develop a strong export market-oriented economy, can be seen in the implementation of ECERDC’s promotional efforts.
This is validated by the achievement of the EMP’s investment target of RM110 billion by year 2020, three years ahead of schedule. This economic growth over the past decade has been primarily driven by private investments.
ECER also boasts a multi-lingual workforce. Locals typically speak two or even three languages, including English and Mandarin. Wage rates are competitive compared to the more developed West Coast of Peninsular Malaysia. Additionally, ECERDC provides a comprehensive range of human capital development programmes to prepare the local population to meet industry demands.
All these factors and more have contributed to ECER’s rising global profile as a compelling investment destination for both local and foreign investors. This is evidenced by the presence of large and established foreign business communities in all business sectors across the Region.
