The Future of Construction in Malaysia to 2015: Commercial Construction Activity to Remain Strong

19 Aug 2011 • by Natalie Aster

The Malaysian construction industry registered growth of XX.XX% in 2010, largely as a result of stimulus packages introduced by the government to revive economic growth. The Malaysian government allocated these incentives between various industries in 2009 to avoid a sharp rise in unemployment and a consequent fall in consumer confidence in the uncertain economic environment. The funds allocated for infrastructure were largely routed towards strengthening Malaysia’s rural infrastructure and developing the nationwide communications infrastructure: the government plans to make Malaysia a knowledge-rich economy and has invested in enhancing broadband connectivity across the country. The government has also launched private-finance initiatives (PFI) through which it will financially encourage private-sector operators to take up public-sector projects. These steps were taken to bring higher levels of efficiency, professionalism and expertise into government projects.
