The Malaysia Productivity Corporation (MPC) aims to make Malaysia a conducive place for everyone to do business, according to MPC deputy director-general Abdul Latif Abu Seman.

Abdul said MPC has begun a thorough review of business regulations, reinforced by the government’s announcement of the liberalisation of the sub-services sectors. He said MPC was not only engaging regulators but also bringing in the business community into consideration.

Abdul added that Malaysia was being evaluated in international reports such as the World Bank report of from starting a business to closing one.

MPC was formerly known as the National Productivity Corp. and was set up in 1962 as a joint project between the United Nations Special Fund and the federal government with the International Labour Organisation acting as its executing agency.
