How Can Malaysia Do Better To Attract FDI?

According to a Reuters report, Malaysia's FDI in 2020 totalled $3.4b, a 56% drop from the previous year. Is this worrisome, or does it just reflect the uncertainties in the global investment landscape due to the pandemic? We explore this by looking at Malaysia's current standing in attracting FDI, what we can do better to remain competitive, and how we can move up the value chain.
