Malaysia’s property and construction industries continue to advance the country’s economy, as well as its social development

The Malaysian economy is at a period when it is able to grow sustainably, even during a global slowdown. At the centre of its ongoing development is the country’s robust property and construction industries, which, as well as attracting global investment, also makes social development a reality.

Integral to Malaysia’s ultimate progression into a developed economy is its commitment to corporate and social responsibility. Leading this approach is the Sunway Group, one of the most well-known and trusted conglomerates in Malaysia. The firm has gained its impeccable reputation through its continuous commitment as a master community developer to improve the lives of all that come into contact through a unique build-own-operate business model, powering its property and construction projects, the most notable being its modern and innovative townships spanning some 4,000 acres in Malaysia. World Finance had the opportunity to speak with Tan Sri Dr Jeffrey Cheah, Founder and Chairman of the Sunway Group, to discuss the country’s expanding property and construction markets, and the company’s role in Malaysian society.
