Hence, with this major decision, Bank Rakyat marked another milestone in history where it became the third bank to offer total Islamic banking products in Malaysia.

Developments of Islamic Banking in Pakistan & Malaysia:

...Developments of Islamic Banking in Pakistan & Malaysia: An Analytical Review Abstract This study compares Islamic banking operations currently practiced in Pakistan and Malaysia. Both countries started Islamic banking in early 1980’s but employed entirely different approaches. Pakistan attempted to convert the entire financial system in accordance with Islamic law at once at national level. Malaysia adopted the gradual application approach. It allowed Islamic and conventional banking systems to operate and to compete for deposits on parallel basis. This study examines the Pakistani and Malaysian approaches towards the implementation of Islamic banking in their respective countries. It recognizes lack of commitment and long term planning problems in case of Pakistan. Introduction Islamic banking system has emerged as a competitive and a viable substitute for the conventional banking system during the last three decades. It is especially true for Muslim world where presently Islamic banking strides at two separate fronts. At one side, efforts are also underway to covert the entire financial systems in accordance to Islamic laws (Shariah). At the other side, separate Islamic banks are allowed to operate in parallel to conventional interest based banks. Pakistan and Malaysia are the two good examples of above mentioned approaches. Both countries adopted different tracks for the same ultimate destination of developing full fledge viable Islamic......

Determinants of Fdi

...Determinants of FDI THE POWER OF FDI IN REGARDS TO GLOBALIZATION: Globalization is an inevitable and irreversible process, and dealing with the imperatives of globalization capitalizing on its positive aspects and mitigating the negative ones is perhaps the most important challenge for today. Globalization has enhanced the opportunities for success, but it has also posed new risks to developing countries. Globalization has many faces; however, globalization is first and foremost comprehended in economic and financial terms. In this sense, it may be defined as the broadening and deepening linkages of national economies into a worldwide market for goods, services and especially capital. Perhaps the most prominent face of globalization is the rapid integration of production and financial markets over the last decade; that is, trade and investment are the prime driving forces behind globalization. Foreign direct investment (FDI) has been one of the core features of globalization and the world economy over the past two decades. It has grown at an unprecedented pace for more than a decade, with only a slight interruption during the recession of the early 1990s. More firms in more industries from more countries are expanding abroad through direct investment than ever before, and virtually all economies now compete to attract multinational enterprises (MNEs). This trend has been driven by the complex interaction of technological change, evolving corporate strategies......

Islamic Revivalism Movement Towards the Establishment of Islamic Banking and Finance in Malaysia

...Islamic Revivalism Movement Towards The Establishment Of Islamic Banking And Finance In Malaysia Islamic revivalism refers to a revival of the Islamic religion throughout the Islamic world, that began roughly sometime in 1970s and is manifested in greater religious piety, and community feeling, and in a growing adoption of Islamic culture, dress, terminology, separation of the sexes, and values by Muslims. It has been defined by some of the Muslim scholar as the cleansing in an effort to return Islam to its original pure form. One striking example of it is the increase in attendance at the Hajj, the annual pilgrimage to Mecca, which grew from 90,000 in 1926 to 2 million in 1979 (Kepel, Gilles, Jihad: on the Trail of Political Islam, Harvard University Press, 2002) The emergence of the Islamic revivalist movements in Malaysia in 1970 was spawned by the global Islamic resurgence and internal fissures or cracks in the Malay Muslim community. There has been an intensification of Islamic activities since the 1970s which include the establishment of Islamic banking and finance. The process of Islamization in Malaysia started in line with the concept of Islam as Ad-deen, a way of life in this world and the Hereafter, every ibadah commanded by Allah S.W.T. is of benefit in this and the next world. Since the beginning Muslims are obligated to perform the Hajj pilgrimage. And Muslims have to find enough money for the journey to the Holy Land. To avoid riba' (usury) which is haram...

Determinants of Capital Structure for Listed Industrial Product Companies in Malaysia

...empirical research on the determinant of firm’s capital structure has been directed largely towards companies listed in developed countries. Since Modigliani and Miller published their seminal paper in 1958, the issue of capital structure has generated great interests among financial researchers (Harris and Raviv, 1991). Based on the theoretical studies, there are two acknowledged competitive theories of capital structure which is the static tradeoff and the pecking order theory. The static trade-off theory of capital structure (tax based theory) states that optimal capital structure is obtained where the net tax advantage of debt financing balances leverage related costs such as financial distress and bankruptcy, holding firm’s assets and investment decisions constant (Baxter, 1967 and Altman 1984, 2002) while Pecking order theory (information asymmetry theory) proposed by Myers (1984) states that firms prefer to finance new investment, first internally with retained earnings, then with debt, and finally with an issue of new equity. 3 1.2 The Objectives The objectives of this study are: a) to examine the effect of tangibility, profitability, firm’s size and non-debt tax shield on capital structure across selected industrial product sector in Malaysia. b) to determine the significant factors whether tangibility, profitability, firm’s size and non-debt tax shield that influence the capital structure of firm in Malaysia. 1.3 Problem......

Fdi Decrease in Malaysia

...element which assists in boosting the country’s development and economic growth. Like other developing countries, Malaysia too depended on FDI and benefitted greatly from the strong inflow (Shahrudin, Yusof, & Satar, 2010) and transformed from an agriculture-based economy to an industrial economy (Wong, 2005). Despite being an attractive FDI destination, as well as an eminent host country to foreign investors, Malaysia has seen an 11% decline in FDI inflow (U.N. Conference on Trade and Development, 2015). A country’s rise or fall in FDI is affected by several determinants such as the market factor, trade barriers, costs, and investment climate (Hill, Cronk, & Wickramasekera, 2014). This essay will serve to discuss both domestic and global factors influencing Malaysia’s decreasing FDI inflow during 2014 and 2015, followed by a firm exiting the country due to domestic factors affecting its performance, and lastly, a conclusion to summarize the main points and supporting arguments. First and foremost, a country’s political stability is an important factor to assess when deciding which country to invest in. According to Azzimonti and Sarte (2007), investments in a politically unstable country become less attractive as expropriation is more likely to occur, thus, its stability must be highly prioritised (Z. Karim, Zaidi, Ismail, & B. Karim, 2011). Malaysia has consistently been an attractive destination for foreign investors as measures to ensure they are protected......

Determinants of Fdi in China

...DETERMINANTS OF FDI IN CHINA DETERMINANTS OF FDI IN CHINA Shaukat Ali and Wei Guo1 ABSTRACT Why and how firms take advantage of foreign opportunities, especially via foreign direct investment (FDI) has been much documented. China, as a major emerging market, has attracted significant flows of FDI, to become the second largest receipt. This paper briefly examines the literature on FDI and focuses on likely determinants of FDI in China. It then analyses responses from 22 firms operating in China on what they see as the important motivations for them to undertake FDI. Results show that market size is a major factor for FDI especially for US firms. For local, export-orientated, Asian firms, low labor costs are the main factor. The paper concludes with managerial implications for businesses wish to exploit opportunities in China. INTRODUCTION The past few years has seen a tremendous growth of foreign direct investment (FDI) that has exceeded both world output and world trade. China is by far the largest recipient, and in 2004 surpassed the USA as host destination. It has consequently attracted an increasing attention from multinational businesses. Since China adopted the reform and opening-up policy in the late 1970s, foreign investment has played an increasingly important role in its economic growth. According to the World Investment Report for 2004 by the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development, China absorbed a total of US$53.5 billion worth......
