China Overseas Investment Network

Navigating your cross-border challenges globally

  • Share

The current wave of globalisation continues to transform the business landscape and impact companies around the world. China’s increasing economic presence on the world stage has undoubtedly played a part in this global trend.

Chinese companies are expanding their footprint globally and this includes Malaysia, which offers key tax incentives such as Principal Hub, Multimedia Super Corridor Status, Pioneer Status and Investment Tax Allowance. Some notable mega-projects in Malaysia that involve Chinese companies include the Melaka Gateway Project, East Coast Rail Link and Malaysia-China Kuantan Industrial Park.

However, China’s globalisation strategies involve challenges because of cultural differences, language barriers, financing difficulties and regulatory issues.

The China Overseas Investment Network (COIN) is part of EY's commitment to provide seamless and high-quality client service, worldwide, to Chinese companies going overseas to do business.
