Malaysia Business Environment Index 2012: Challenges and Opportunities for Accelerating Local Business


The Malaysia Business Environment Index (BEI) Pilot Study 2012 is the first survey that investigates firms’ perceptions about the business environment at the district level. Utilizing data collected from 635 small and medium-sized firms, the BEI is a composite of nine sub-indices which measure the business environment in 11 city and municipal districts across six states in peninsula Malaysia, and ranks them against each other based on a 100-point scale. The nine sub-indices have been structured to capture the key elements of the local business environment that can be influenced by district regulations or district implementation of federal and state policies.
