"The economic impacts of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic on the private sector, industry and jobs is expected to be large in Malaysia. This is particularly the case for small medium enterprises (SMEs) as they constitute 98.5% of total firms and are likely to be severely affected with less resources to absorb the shock."

"According to the World Bank’s Human Capital Index, Malaysia ranks 55th out of 157 countries. To fully realize its human potential and fulfil the country’s aspiration of achieving the high-income and developed country status, Malaysia will need to advance further in education, health and nutrition, and social protection outcomes."World Bank
