How to set up a conference call to Malaysia

Malaysia is one of South-East Asia’s most vibrant and successful economies – after benefiting from years of political stability and strong industrial growth it is now the world’s largest producer of computer disk drives and rubber and is one of the largest producers of timber.

It’s also the world’s largest exporter of palm oil, despite being second to Indonesia in terms of production.

If investing in Malaysia sounds like a viable business proposition you’ll need a cost-effective and reliable international conference call provider.

Where is Malaysia?

Located in Southeast Asia, Malaysia is essentially divided into two parts. The Malaysian peninsula is connected to the mainland and borders Thailand. It is also linked to  and neighbouring Singapore by a causeway and bridge. Malaysia’s island section borders Indonesia and Brunei.

What is the Foreign and Commonwealth Office advice on traveling to Malaysia?

Almost half-a-million British nationals visit Malaysia each year without incident, there is a risk of petty crime, especially bag snatching. Currently, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) advise against all but essential travel to all islands off the coast of eastern Sabah from Kudat to Tawau, including (but not limited to) Lankayan, Mabul, Pom Pom, Kapalai, Litigan, Sipadan and Mataking.

Terrorists are very likely to try to carry out attacks in Malaysia. Attacks could happen anywhere, including in places visited by foreigners. Be vigilant, monitor local media and follow the advice of the local authorities.

What’s the best time to call Malaysia

clockKuala Lumpur sits just over 6,500 miles from London and it takes over thirteen hours to fly there – so no way anyone is doing face-to-face business meetings in a day. And, just like neighbouring Singapore, it’s eight hours ahead – a full working day – so factor this in to any conference calls you set up.
