A former British colony, Malaysia was formed in 1963. Malaysia’s economy has traditionally been fueled by its natural resources but is transforming into an emerging multi-sector economy. Malaysia has slowly liberalized its economy, but government ownership remains prevalent in such key sectors as banking, media, automobiles, and airlines.
