According to relevant regulations, enterprises need to pay social insurance fees for employees, including medical insurance, unemployment insurance, pension insurance, etc. Compared with other countries, Malaysia's social insurance fees are lower, which is an important factor attracting enterprises to employ workers in Malaysia.

3. Advantageous Geographical Location
