Business Creation and Destruction

As in most countries, Malaysia's private sector is comprises as much larger share of GDP than the public sector, and is therefore primarily responsible for job and value creation. Furthermore, a vibrant and thriving business environment is a key indicator of a healthy economy. In Malaysia, the Companies Commission (SSM) is the single source of truth on this matter - all businesses, companies, and LLPs in operation must be registered with SSM to operate legally. Powered by their registry, this dashboard summarises trends in business creation and destruction.
