Germany is a social market economy with a strong connection to global trade and investment. It is Malaysia’s most important trading partner amongst the EU countries. Numerous German companies have set up their businesses in Malaysia, and Malaysian companies have also invested into the German market.
The Economic Affairs Department of the German Embassy in Kuala Lumpur supports these ties with a broad range of activities. In our mission to further strengthen the good Malaysian-German economic relationship, we work closely together with the Malaysian-German Chamber of Commerce and Industry (MGCC) and Germany Trade and Invest (gtai).
