A report by Chinese property portal Juwai.com and Malaysian real estate agency network IQI GlobalChinese buyers reveled that Chinese buyers accounted for RM8.4 billion worth of Malaysian property sales in 2018, which is 12.1% of the total transaction value and 0.4% of total transaction share, according to Blue Brickz (11 November 2019). The report said Chinese buyers drove a significant multiplier effect as the impact of their investment spread to other sectors, such as retail, hospitality, manufacturing, banking, insurance, and transportation. “What makes Malaysia special is that it has a very vigorous and effective regime of policies that direct foreign buying into those parts of the property market that most benefit the country," said IQI Global group CEO Kashif Ansari.
