Malaysia: Challenges and Opportunities

Marine Money Asia hits the road this week as we head to Kuala Lumpur to present at the Maritime Financing Seminar 2009 put together by our friend Nazery Khalid at the Maritime Institute of Malaysia (“MIMA”) with the sponsor OCBC Bank. More than any other cities in the country, Kuala Lumpur represents the focal point of Malaysia in many aspects and the same can be said for ship financing. The two day seminar gathered an impressive list of over 80 delegates to discuss the current state and the opportunities for the growing Malaysian shipping industry. In his opening address, Director General Dato Cheah Kong Wai from MIMA highlighted some of Malaysia’s achievements in the maritime sector. Today, Malaysia is ranked by UNCTAD as the 18th most important nation in terms of its 1.2% contribution to the world’s merchant fleet in 2008. In addition to two world class container ports – Port Klang and Pelabuhan Tanjung Pelepas, Malaysia’s national carrier MISC is the world’s largest owner-operator of LNG tankers with a fleet of 27 vessels. The nation is also the world’s 13th largest producer of natural gas and 24th largest in crude oil production which explains the vibrancy of its domestic oil and gas sector.
