BMCC Advocacy Surveys - What's Next

The BMCC recently conducted two surveys requesting feedback from our members on the 2018 National Budget and The Future of Tax Incentives in Malaysia 2017. To increase the value of your membership with us, these surveys are an important ongoing effort as we strive to develop a greater understanding of your business, and in so doing relaying your needs to relevant government stakeholders. 

We thank all our participants for your valuable input. We have aggregated the results and we will be sharing it with you via a separate email. For more information about this initiative, email

We are still collecting feedback for The Future of Tax Incentives in Malaysia 2017 survey. We welcome you to answer a few simple questions if you've not already done so:
