Regional Representative Office

Regional/Representative Offices

Malaysia is an attractive base for companies to establish their Regional or Representative Offices (REs/ROs) to coordinate and support their operations in the Asia Pacific region.

 

The establishment of REs and ROs marks the preliminary phase of a foreign company committing interest to set up its regional operations in Malaysia. Information gathering and feasibility studies on local investment opportunities are usually undertaken during this phase for their parent companies in preparation for a long term commitment.
