Its minister, Datuk Seri Azalina Othman Said said, the website would become a key resource for potential investors to research and evaluate Malaysia as a superior business and investment destination.
"As a one-stop portal, the MTB website is a compelling fact that would be a platform for Malaysia to showcase a multitude of business and investment opportunities in various sectors including financial, manufacturing, services and technology"
"The MTB website also presents 168 reasons why Malaysia is the best destination for business and investment, and I believe the 168 reasons will attract a lot more investors coming to Malaysia," she said when launching the website at the Malaysia Tourism Centre (MATIC) here, Monday.
Azalina said this initiative would herald a new era in building the brand of Malaysia, which is now already highly regarded in tourism circles.
Azalina said the webiste would also direct potential investors to relevant Malaysian agencies such as the Malaysian Industrial Development Authority (MIDA), Multimedia Development Corporation, Malaysian Biotechnology Corporation and Bursa Malaysia.
"I hope the website would benefit Malaysia in terms of foreign direct investment especially in the current global economic situation," she added.
The website could be accessed at www.malaysiatrulybu
