It's rather important for marketing experts to talk about this.

As Malaya is reducing reliance on foreign workers, it is going to move up the value chain.
When such an event occur, the market segmentation in Malaya changes.

I will dedicate this thread, hopefully with Mr.CaringHK (he still owes me Grace, ha ha ha) to dissect the market, help Mainland China and Trade Route States to better understand the Malayan market and how you can take advantage of it to the benefit of your business!


cheerios!



Will talk about this tommorow!

Use to think that you are cantonese but now i think you could be Fujienese?

ha ha ha


But in Malaya, we only have two major group, those of Guangdongnese - mostly Teochew, Cantonese, Hakka. And Fujienese with some Fujien and Fuzhou people. This two category of markets are important for foreigners to understand when they market in Malaya.

The Guangdonese are centred in the CENTRAL REGION. a region with it's northern borders at Ipoh, a very comfortable city with a huge light industry, goes down south to Kuala Lumpur and ends at Port Dickson. The Hindu, Mamak (some mamaks reclassified themselves as Bumiputras and has infiltrated UMNO, a premier Riau based party) Indians and Archipelago (people who originated from mainly Sumatra, Java and Sulawesi) populated here.

The Main market segments are Guangdongnese, this are mainly close knit, loud, loves to eat, loves to entertain, wheel and deals.......



more to come tommorrow..

The Impectus on the Patani and Riau suburban sprawls.

This will be the new emphasis to develop the industrial and assembly suburban sprawls.

With lower foreign labour force in Malaya, and the manipulation to create a economic pyramid to ensure domestic consumption remains strong, supporting the entire state, we do expect the assembly industry in central to moved into the neighbouring suburban sprawls.

The one north, is the PATANI sprawls.
iT centres on towns of Sungei Patani, Kulim and Province Wellesley.
It will help to relief population pressure on the limited farming land that has kept this patani region improverished.

The 2nd is already a very successful RIAU sprawl.
It centres on the Malacca town, spreads down to Muar, Segamat, and Batu Pahat.

Potentially, both sprawls will eventually be a profitable suburban home for 2 million people each.

....and life will be good for the Riau and Patani people.

..what with the extensive Suraus, Mosque, community centres, hypermarkets, sports centres, and market towns built by government and Hai San people.

and lower cost of living as land is cheaper than Central region.
plus higher wages due to removal of 800,000 people earning Rmb1200 a month...with kept wages of Patani and Riau people low.
it will be a relief to assembly industry bosses as well as cost in the Central Region rises due to reforms created by our discussions.


cheerios!

Yes, Fujien and some Hakka people, Hai San alliance.


The INDUSTRIOUS FUJIENESE has build a lot of industries clusters, eg. Food industry (Halal Hub logical location) in Malacca, Refineries along the Malacca-Port Dickson coastal road, Furniture factories in Muar cluster, Textiles, Garments, cookies in the Batu Pahat clusters, in Segamat a lot of process industries. There are also electronic assembly industry.

In the Hai San towns, there are amenities like bowling centres, cinemas, hypermarkets, and lots of lots of industries....cheap land.
You can build a mansion in Batu Pahat for less than M$250,000....you'll only get a small 900sq. ft. hole in the sky in Kuala Lumpur for the same.

and there's lots of kampung lots, too small for farming, only 1.5 - 3 acre, which can be subdivided and sold to create marvellous suburban homes. Roads are metalled and paved. I reckon the Riau and Patani suburban sprawl will be home to at least 4.0 million people about 50% of the Central region's 8.5 million people.
