INSIDE MALAYSIA Political Volatility Hitting Investment
Thailand's next-door neighbor Malaysia has foreign investors registering increasing concern over the current political issues facing the country.
With the coalition Government of Prime Minister Najib Razak coming under pressure back of recent racial tension between the majority Muslim and Malay population and ethnic Chinese and Indian there remains questions if peace can be maintained.
The country is registering high on the radar of many political and risk management analysts who voice out opinions that international investment will be hit hard including the property and real estate sectors unless the current groundswell of sentiment can be neutralized.
While Thailand and the upcoming landmark Supreme Court ruling on the assets of deposed Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra had been touted as one of the regional hot spots, Malaysia is now moving increasingly into the limelight.
