CDA Bhalla: U.S. Investment Builds Jobs and Communities

At the 2023 Penang Dialogue, Chargé d’Affaires (CDA) Bhalla emphasized that U.S. companies are the largest investor in Malaysia in terms of quantity as well as quality. In 2022, U.S. private sector investment accounted for 37.8 billion ringgit in foreign direct investment, creating more than 10,000 jobs. The United States is not only increasing our investment in Malaysia, but investing in the people and communities, raising the quality of life for all Malaysians.
