Assistance in Malaysia
The Australian Trade Commission (Austrade) is the Australian Government agency that helps Australian companies win overseas business for their products and services. We offer practical advice, market intelligence and ongoing support (including financial) to Australian businesses looking to develop international markets. We also provide advice and guidance on overseas investment and joint venture opportunities in countries such as Malaysia. Austrade’s staff in Kuala Lumpur have a detailed understanding of business in both Malaysia and Australia.

For Malaysian Businesses, Austrade can:
Provide buyers with up-to-date advice on Australia\'s supply capabilities across a wide range of products, services and technologies
Match buyers with Australian suppliers. Buyers are asked to provide some key data about their company and their needs so that the best possible connections with potential Australian suppliers can be made using Austrade’s extensive electronic data-base of export ready companies
