Japanese investors want to return to Malaysia: Lim

BUTTERWORTH, Japanese investors are now confident of returning to invest in Malaysia amid the country’s strengthening economy, says Finance Minister Lim Guan Eng.

He said their confidence is based on Malaysia’s handling of the 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB) scandal.

“I have just returned from Japan where I met investors, and they said they are confident about Malaysia’s economy and want to return (to invest) in Malaysia. They were previously afraid about coming as they were worried about the 1MDB scandal.
