Private investment growth, which had moderated sharply from 9.0% in 2017 to 1.6% in 2019, reversed to decline by 2.3% yoy in the first quarter of 2020. Approved domestic investment had declined by 6.4% per annum from RM175.1 billion in 2014 to RM125.5 billion in 2019, resulted in a drop in domestic approved investment’s share to 60% in 2019 compared to an average share of 72% in 2014-2018.

Both Domestic Direct Investment (DDI) and Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) are equally important to sustain domestic economic growth, stimulate more investment, create high-income jobs and expand exports. However, DDI have not been performing satisfactory in recent years, raising concerns about the vitality of their strength and contribution to overall private investment.

In this regard, NCCIM would like to conduct a survey to gauge local business community’s perspective on domestic investment prospects and explore the issues and challenges faced when investing in Malaysia.
