Malaysia’s multi-ethnic nature holds a unique advantage within Asia that offers more languages than any other country. With its vernacular schooling system (Malay, Mandarin, Tamil and English-based teaching instruction), most Malaysian speaks at least two languages, and some, trilingual. Malaysia welcomes the hiring of foreign talents and attracts regional (Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam, Philippines) and international talents from abroad, making it an attractive hub.
