Malaysia Chemicals 2014

May 02, 2014

Malaysia must fight to maintain its advantage over other countries in the region, such as Indonesia and Thailand, which also offer lower costs when it comes to labor and land ownership and availability but do not have Malaysia’s logistic and financial infrastructure.
